Scramble-Up A Little Golf This Weekend!


It’s spring in Texas, which means you are not exactly sure if your wardrobe this weekend will include shorts or coats or BOTH.  But either way, you can spend some time outside, enjoying the day with friends and neighbors at our Spring Golf Scramble!  You don’t have to be a golf pro to enjoy this fun semi-annual event.  Trophies will be awarded for Closest-to-the-Pin, Longest Drive (for both men & women) and winning foursomes.  Tournament fees include greens & cart fees, practice balls, 2 drink tickets, a $5 Golf Shop gift card and a green fee pass to Ridgeview Ranch or Riverchase Golf Clubs.

This year the event is being sponsored by some fantastic area businesses and some are Ridgeview Ranch residents!  State Farm Agent John Kraft and Real Estate Agent Liz Aviles with VIP Realty have both made cash contributions to help offset the cost of the event.

To get those golf swings ready for the weekend, skip some rocks.  That’s right, I said skip some rocks.  Bruce Sims, Director of Instruction at Ridgeview Ranch Golf Club, says that “skipping a rock is the exact motion for making a golf swing.  You load the weight to your right side, step forward to transfer that weight and rotate the hips to allow your arm to lag, and then release and see the rock skip across the water.  So, practice skipping rocks and you will feel the correct motion for making a golf swing.”
