Journal Entry #13
July 30, 2003 (last updated 9/15/03)

Scramble golf tournaments can be a lot of fun and you can meet lots of great people. If you put a foursome together yourself your group will have fun, but if you sign up by yourself and ask to be paired up on a team you are likely to meet people you would never have met otherwise. Some wonderful relationships can be started. However, if you are a business person there is no better place to develop relationships and business than on a golf course. Most all of these tournaments are held to raise money for worthy benefits.

OCTOBER 15, 2003

My favorite each year is usually held the second Tuesday of October at the Broadmoor Hotel and Resort. However, this year it will be held on Wednesday the 15th. It is the Partners in Education scramble that benefits the District 12 school district, which has been adopted by the hotel. This tournament starts with a continental breakfast and the gift of a Broadmoor golf shirt. Try buying one for less than $85. The culmination is a gourmet luncheon at the hotel and there are drawings for gifts and trips that will boggle your mind. For more information or to sign up call Sherry Clark 719-577-5845 or email Check out the West course in course reviews.
