Shotgun Start Golf Tournament

Thursday October 6th @ 11:00

Come join us at the Owner’s Only Retreat for a fantastic Shotgun Start Golf Tournament on Thursday October 6th at 11:00 am at Old Brockway Golf Course.  This nine-hole, 3400+ yard course with two par 5 holes, was the home to the first Bing Crosby Golf Tournament in 1934, and is only about 10 minutes from the hotel.  It sits among towering Jeffrey pines and has a view of Lake Tahoe, which is only a stone’s throw away, as well at the Sierra Mountains. The course has tight fairways and postage stamp greens, reminiscent of golf in an era gone by.  There will be transportation to and from the golf course, a nice boxed lunch prepared by the Ritz-Carlton hotel, and some fun contests and prizes. Bring your own clubs or rent them there for an additional $25.  Golf carts are included in the cost of $45, … sign up, bring a friend if you’d like and enjoy a few hours of outdoor fun and relaxation  before the Wine blending event begins later in the afternoon.

Make Your Own Wine Blend at OOR 2016

Thursday, October 6th @ 4:30pm

Sure, you can get the job done with just one, but it’s much more fun when there are three.  Hey, what were you thinking? I’m talking about wine here.  Drinking a wine made from multiple grape types is sort of like listening to a group of musicians as opposed to a soloist.  Now, you get an opportunity to be the conductor and arranger of that group.  Come to our special wine blending event at Owners Only Retreat and you will be able to blend your very own wine using three high-quality aged Napa Valley single varietal wines.  When you are done making your blending selections, we will provide you with a full-sized bottle of your own personalized wine with YOUR* name on it!  All this will be under the guidance of an experienced wine professional who will teach you all about the individual grape types and how to blend like a pro.  This will be a once in a lifetime experience you won’t want to miss.

*In order for your wine to be personalized with your name printed on the label, you must be registered for the event by no later than October 3rd
