A warm sunny day met 75 golfers as they took to the Palisades Country Club golf course last Monday in the 16th annual CrownGOLF tournament sponsored by Veristor. The tournament featured some of the best restaurants in Charlotte 'teeing up' their very best hors d'oeuvres for the golfers throughout the course.
"The winning team shot an amazing 25 under par, the food out on the course was delicious, and Palisades Country Club could not have been more hospitable," said CrownGOLF Chairman Tim Martin. "Everyone had a terrific time and we raised a lot of money for Carolina Crown.
Food was the highlight of the tournament as golfers were treated to samples of feature dishes from some of Charlotte's finest restaurants including Dresslers, Fleming's, Capital Grille, Black Finn, Vida Cantina, and more. Texas Roadhouse of Matthews, NC, also provided food on the course and catered lunch for the golfers.
McCormick & Schmicks Seafood and Steaks, located on South Tryon St. in Charlotte, NC, won the best tasting tee with their bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheese.
Golfers also won some great prizes and giveaways including a golf bag, Carolina Crown DVDs and shirts, and a signed football provided by the Carolina Panthers.
