Quiet Please – Bass Pro’s golf tournament goes electric

 

With handheld signs hushing spectators, whispering announcers and the famous golf clap, duffers are always trying to find a way to limit distractions and fully enjoy the serenity of the tees and greens. Electric golf carts have a long history in the sport and now there’s a golf boat.

 

IMG_0027When the organizers of the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge tournament needed to ferry celebrity participants back and forth to a challenging island green they partnered with Torqeedo, the world leader in electric boating, to power a Sun Tracker Signature Series pontoon.

 

The Sun Tracker provides a lush ride in pillow-topped fore and aft lounges, offering a luxurious respite for the golfers aboard. The 24’ boat was equipped with two Cruise 4.0 9.9hp equivalent electric motors and powered with eight Power 26-104 lithium smart batteries which gave a tranquil, powerful and fume-free motoring experience.

 

“We were thrilled to be part of the Legends of Golf event for the second year in a row. The competitors love the experience of electric boating. It’s aIMG_0009 natural fit with the great sport of golf.” – Said Steve Trkla – President, Torqeedo Inc.

 

The Legends participating included Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson and while Ben Crenshaw may have said goodbye to The Masters this year, fans got a chance to see him take on both Top of the Rock and Buffalo Ridge. The latter course has been transformed over the last six months by noted conservationist Johnny Morris and famous golf architect Tom Fazio.

 

Proceeds from the tournament will go to fund scholarships at College of the Ozarks “Hard Work U” and the National Fish and Wildlife Museum.

Vacations…Underground

There are millions of spots to visit and sites to see around the world when it comes to vacation time; however, there are also those you can’t necessarily “see.” In this world of digital technology and highly imaginative architecture that creates buildings that are higher and more “glitzy” than ever before, it is important to remember that in ancient times, people were building “down.” Various civilizations created locations underground, while others actually got buried by Mother Nature and simply forgotten about. Let’s begin internationally…

Buying & Selling: Learning the Art of the Tag Sale

When people speak about making a few extra bucks, there is more than one way to skin a cat these days. Perhaps you’re trying to save up for a vacation for the family to take this summer. Perhaps you are looking for collectibles to invest in. Oddly enough, many people do not realize what, exactly, was in Great Grandma’s house when she passed on to a happier place. There are even those who will put her things on a table, mark them twenty-five cents, and declare them to be old knickknacks (AKA: things you need to dust every five seconds.) Trouble is, a lot of those knickknacks can actually be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Heck, there have even been things found at tag sales that have been resold in the millions. No. Not kidding. Are the chances immense that you’ll find such a buy? No. But, there have been those that have proven this particular once-in-a-lifetime-event can happen.
