August 31, 2007–Several Las Vegas golfers from three Las Vegas golf courses have qualified for the inaugural OB Sports Team National Championship that will be played September 7-9 in Arizona. Players from Las Vegas golf courses Angel Park Golf Club, Aliante Golf Club and Legacy Golf Club will make the trip, where they will compete against other OB Sports-managed golf courses. OB Sports is a management company that operates the three Las Vegas golf courses in addition to several others around the country. The event is another perk for members of the OB Sports Card, an annual player value card that can be purchased by Las Vegas golfers. Complete Las Vegas golf packages are available through OBSportsGolfVacations.com.
Eleven different golf courses are fielding eight-man teams for the event, and the Angel Park Golf Club team, headed by Las Vegas golf pro David Stead is excited for the fun, but playing to win. The team is made up of Kevin Duff, Bob Malinak, Bill Strayton, Jerry Johnson, Bobby Palmer, Bobby Strumm, and Karl Henckel plus Stead, the captain.
"This is another way for us to show the card holders at Angel Park that we value their business and loyalty," says Stead. "We are excited to compete in the event and ready for the fun, but we are definitely going to play to win, and think we can."
Las Vegas golf course Angel Park Golf Club is the home of two Arnold Palmer golf courses in addition to a lighted par 3 course, driving range and putting course. It is dubbed as the world's most complete golf experience.
Las Vegas golf course Aliante Golf Club is a one of the newer Las Vegas golf courses, and has quickly gained traction as one of the better values in Las Vegas golf. The Aliante Golf Club team is captained by Marc Orlowski, and team members are Joe Pascua, Jim Callahan, Robert Ulate, Ernie Ulate, Gordon Forgey, Chuck Lisk, Jim Manley and Denise Manley.
Las Vegas golf course Legacy Golf Club is an Arthur Hills design located in the southeast part of the valley, with convenient access to the Las Vegas Strip. The Legacy team is captained by Byron Cone, but team members hadn't been named by press time.
“The lines have been drawn, the teams have been set and now it’s time to battle it out,” says Phil Green, President of OB Sports. “That sounds serious, but really it’s just a lot of fun to host our loyal customers from the various clubs, and what better way to say thanks than inviting them to a fun-filled golf event in Arizona.”
