A Swing and a Hit!

At Whitetail Club, the premier private community in the Pacific Northwest, there are many things that we are passionate about. Boating on Payette Lake, Nordic skiing on expertly groomed trails, hiking through our mountain-lake landscape…but when the sun is bright and the grass is green, the golf season is at its peak. Last month, we celebrated the season with our annual Men’s Invitational tournament. This riveting competition, open to members and their guests, pitted dynamic duos against each other for the chance to claim the biggest award of the season.

This year, our contenders formed fifty teams, which joined us on Whitetail Club’s private championship course for eight flights of friendly competition. During the tournament 1,000 shots were played by the field to the four par 3s. And while the odds of a-hole-in-one for amateurs are 2,500 to 1, we beat the odds with three! The perfect shot, made on Thursday, earned its player a 2017 Toyota Tundra.

Meanwhile, three teams battled it out for the title. The teams were neck and neck (and neck). The suspense was palpable. And the outcome was anyone’s guess. When our winner calmly stepped up and in dramatic fashion swept the game, the crowd went wild.

But the men weren’t the only ones looking forward to this whirlwind adventure. The festivities began with a bang during Wednesday evening’s sizzling Arabian Nights Welcome Reception, where our competitors and their spouses mingled for some pre-competition cocktails and socializing. While the men played their first round on Thursday, the ladies were swept away on a tres chic no-boys-allowed, Parisian-themed Ladies Event complete with berets, baguettes and their very own Eiffel Tower. On Friday, we brought our couples back together for a co-ed dinner and cocktails prepared by Whitetail Club’s executive chef and his culinary team.

This unparalleled tournament culminated on Saturday evening. After the game was won, we celebrated at the Cocktails, Dinner and Awards Presentation at Whitetail Club’s Fish & Swim Club. Then we took everyone to the China Grove.

That night competitors, members and members’ guests all gathered for the culmination of our signature event of the season: the Whitetail Club Summer Concert featuring The Doobie Brothers. We rocked the night away with the San Jose band that helped define 70’s rock and blue-eyed soul, as they played a wide selection of their popular hits, including “Long Train Runnin’,” “China Grove” and “Black Water.”

All in all, we had a spectacular time celebrating with our Whitetail Club family and friends, and hope that you can join us for one of our signature events in the future.
