The pose of a Champion! Who will pose at the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst?

The Triangle will be the focus of golf this year as we welcome both the 2014 U.S. Men’s and Women’s Open to Pinehurst in June. It will be a unique opportunity to watch some of the greatest golfers in the world compete. Nothing is more impressive than witnessing amazing golf shots with millions of dollars in prize money on the line. We all remember the great shot by Payne Stewart to win the U.S. Open in Pinehurst or the more recent Bubba Watson shot to win The Masters in 2012. However, if you are like me, you would much rather play golf then watch it. Here are some of the great opportunities to gather your friends and business associates to play tournament golf in the Triangle this year.

The tournament was named after past president Jack Andrews who supported this tournament. We lost Jack in 2013, but he will never be forgotten!

Upcoming Golf Tournaments and other important items

As the Golfing Realtor, I feel it is important for me to emphasis and promote upcoming golf tournaments and other important items. There are many exciting golf opportunities that should impress many people. This post will not have all of the golf tournaments in the Triangle, just some that I know are coming.

Before I get into the tournament schedule, I would be remiss not to mention that the real estate season that is quickly approaching. March tends to be the month that showing and general activity begins to really take hold. The market has traditionally shown that it is tied to the spring and summer seasons. If you have been reading blog, you will know that 2012 was a very successful year for the Triangle real estate market. Sales were up and inventory was down. By some indications, foreclosures in 2013 will be up over last year. If last year’s trends continue, 2013 is shaping up to be another very successful year.

With that said, if you have been thinking of either buying or selling in 2013, now is the time to get your home ready for sale and get it onto the market. The best thing you can do to sell your home quickly is to have it ready for show from the beginning as research has shown that the most showings you will have on your home will be in the first few weeks it is on the market. So, be ready to sell and then call a qualified agent whom you like and trust to help you price your home correctly and sell it in a timely manner. Most people looking to sell a home are doing it so they can either move-up or downsize their living quarters. This means you need to definitely be priced right and showing your best foot when it officially goes on the market.

Now that we got the business out of the way, there are several golf tournaments coming up that may interest you. Also, I have listed several golf outing (not tournaments) that may interest you. As a committee member of the Downtown Links, we have monthly outings and have secured some very nice courses throughout the Triangle. If you are not a member of the Downtown Clubs of Raleigh, you can be my guest to any of these events as I will be at most of them. Please let me know if you are interested in any of these dates.

I would encourage you to plan to play in one or more tournaments this year. I have only won a couple of the tournaments I have played, but I have always had fun.

Alzheimer’s North Carolina Golf Tournament

June 28, 2011

2011 "Stand by Me" Golf Tournament

Last Monday, I had the privilege and honor to play and support the Alzheimer’s Association of North Carolina by participating in their annual golf tournament. This event was held at the prestigious Prestonwood Country Club and the event was well-organized. It is good to be able to do two wonderful things at once; play Prestonwood and support Alzheimer’s research.

As with nearly everyone, I know someone who has been impacted by this dreaded disease as my wife’s godmother suffered from it near the end of her life. “Alzheimer North Carolina is dedicated to providing education, support and services to patients, their families, health care professionals and the general public while raising awareness and funding for research for a cause, treatment, prevention and cure for Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders”, according to their mission statement.

This organization was founded in 1980 at Duke University and relocated to Raleigh in 1985, thanks to a generous grant from Kate B. Reynolds Health Care Trust. This moved them to the Cameron Village area. Due to growth and a need for more space, they later moved to Navaho Drive, near Wake Forest Drive.

All of the proceeds raised will go to the organization to support its efforts. The tournament boasted a putting contest, driving contest where you attempted to call your distance and several hole-in-one and closest to the pin competitions. After the event, they had an auction and raffle drawings. I am not privy to the amount of money they raised, but I plan to add this event to my calendar every year as it was very rewarding to me.

I would encourage anyone who likes golf and good causes to consider participating in this event next year. They have been doing this tournament for 23 years, so they know what they are doing and are doing it well.

For those who do not know, Prestonwood Country Club is one of the premier golf communities in the Triangle. Prestonwood offers an amazing clubhouse, 54 championship holes, dining, tennis and aquatic facilities. It also boast a state-of-the-art fitness center and an active Kids Club.

Prestonwood is surrounded by fabulous homes of varying sizes to accommodate nearly every buyer. The community is established and offers walking trails it is one of the most family friendly communities in Cary. Located in the heart of Cary, just minutes from downtown Raleigh it is truly a place you can call home.
