Skip Stewart bought a raffle ticket for $40 in the Dream Golf Vacation 2021 raffle and won the golf trip of a lifetime. This year’s Memorial Day weekend, Skip, a friend in Arizona, and two other men’s league members from Riverdale Golf Club traveled to Indiana to play at the Victoria National, which is ranked No. 47 in the Golf Digest’s 100 Best Courses in America.
Skip and his pals felt “the greatness of the grand prize gift” during their stay. It had rained two days before, but the weather was great once we arrived. They played four rounds in two days and stayed in a four-bedroom, four-bathroom cottage on the property, as well as full access to the clubhouse and all of its amenities.
Asked about his favorite part of the experience, it was playing “an amazing course with three close friends”. The golf course itself was unlike anything the group had seen; they never met another band while playing. The course is surrounded by trees with no highways, roads or houses in sight. This allowed for relaxing, private parties so everyone had fun and didn’t feel the need to rush off if another band was playing behind them.
Skip himself grew up in Arvada and is a product of junior golf programs in Colorado, so when he saw that the Dream Golf Vacation Raffle benefits youth programs, he decided to buy a ticket to give back. to the programs that got him into the game as a kid. . Skip shares that it was through these programs that he got involved in golf in the first place, and after having his first child last September, his loving perception of the benefits of youth programs only continues to grow. to reinforce.
