I’ll be honest, I’ve always thought golfing was an extremely boring sport. However, Matt, my husband, is a sports enthusiasts who loves golf and watches some on TV. Through the years, he’s mentioned it would be nice to buy tickets to go to Championships that were being held in our area. But, never pushed this issue because he figured I would be bored.
To our surprise, we discovered there is more to the PGA Tours. My family and I were invited to attend the PGA PowerShares QQQ Championship, this month which was held at an exclusive country club, in southern California. I am not going to butter things up and say “I was so excited to go because I did not want to go.” However, I believe it is important to expose your children to different experiences. Plus, I knew Matt would enjoy. Therefore, I made a commitment to dive in and see what PGA Tours has to offer for families.
From the time we arrived, our day’s activities were planned out by a PGA Tour Representative. Before taking Joy to a free Youth Clinic held by Sherwood Cares Youth Groups during the games. Matt, rested a bit a took in the view and watched players tee off on the greens.
When it was time for the Youth Clinic, we headed over to the assigned area. The young group was provided lunch as they listened to Pro Golfer, Rod Spittle talk about the life of a professional golfer. He also gave young aspiring golfers tips and encouragement.
After they had eaten, each child was given an opportunity to tee off on the green with Mr. Spittle. Joy leaf up from her seat and could not wait for her turn. As I watch her try Golf for the first time, with pro golfer Rod Spittle, I could not help but be proud of her. When I was a child, I spent so much time being scared of what people thought of me; I didn’t branch out and explore. However, Joy is the complete opposite, and I admired her willingness stand in front of the group and try her hand at golf.
Afterward, we headed over to the Gourmet food trucks. I love seafood. Therefore, I could not resist trying food truck Shrimp vs. Chef. Before trying some of the delicious items on the menu, we took some time to speak with Temple Sewell, executive chef, and owner of the Shrimp vs. Chef food truck.
Before Launching Shrimp vs. Chef in May 2015, Temple, a California native who grew up in West Los Angeles and had a career in finance. However, his passion was cooking. After graduating from high school, he worked in a restaurant kitchen and in the late 1990s moved to Maui with the idea of opening a taco stand with a friend. Which didn’t happen, but it did later in life inspire him to start Shrimp vs. Chef.
I was blessed to try several items on their menu. However, my favorite was the shrimp ceviche. I have tried my fair share of shrimp ceviche and lemon over pours other flavors. But all of the ingredients in Shrimp vs. Chef ceviche are perfectly blended.
Matt loves the shrimp tacos.
J.J. King couldn’t get enough of their SurfNTurf bowl.
In all the from kids activities to gourmet food, the PGA Tours offers more than a golfing event, it is an experience for the entire family.
