There are many golf course along the Grand Strand that do creative things to attract people to come to their facility but we think that Diamondback Golf Club at Woodland Valley may have come up with the most fun and family friendly way to attract a crowd. On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we will take a look at how Diamondback held “Family Movie Night” and how much fun everyone had.
We caught up with General Manager, Patrick Wilkinson and asked him a few question about the event and what went on behind the scenes to pull this unique event off. He was very excited that they were able to invite people in the community out to Diamondback and that the event was a huge success.
“We try to stay involved in the community” said Wilkinson. “We take pride in that and enjoy hosting events that bring golfers and non-golfers alike to the golf course where they can have some fellowship and fun.”
The event started in the early evening behind the clubhouse and in front of the driving range. There is where the families were having refreshments along with popcorn and cotton candy amount other treats. They also had a special guest in trick shot artist, John Witty, who took to the driving range to put on an exhibition that wowed and amused all in attendance. Once he finished he gave some of the folks in attendance the opportunity to try some of the trick shots he had just showed them. This type of interaction was a big hit with both adults and kids. They all have fun taking a whack and some of the trick shots.
The putting green was open as well for adults and kids alike to have some fun with some putting just for practice and some games for kids. Music played and fun was had by all in the time leading up to the main attraction.
“It was great to see so many families hanging out and enjoying the driving range and putting green while we were waiting for it to get dark” said Wilkenson.
The movie screen was set up in the grass next to the putting green which allowed the families to spread out blankets and chairs to sit in and enjoy the show. All in all it was a great evening and will be the first of more events like this to come at Diamondback Golf Club.
