The Winner Of The 2017 #GolfIsGreat Contest Is…

November 20, 2017

Hailing from Toronto, Alex Anthony is this year’s winner! Alex’s video, “The Drive”, showcased the simplicity and beauty of golf that we often take for granted. 

For his efforts, Alex will receive $10,000 and a trip to Myrtle Beach in 2018.

Alex Anthony 2017 #golfisgreat video contest winner!

Check out the video below of our team surprising Alex in his hometown of Victoria, British Columbia (Canada). Alex is a staff member for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL and was visiting his hometown during the Argos’ bye week, so we thought, “Let’s surprise him in his hometown on the very golf course his family helped build!”

We notified Alex’s mom, Patti, and enlisted her help to surprise Alex with the ultimate golf competition giveaway! With Patti’s help, Alex played nine-holes at Cedar Hill Golf Club with some of his childhood buddies. What Alex didn’t know was that he’d walk into the clubhouse following his round to a room full of friends and family waiting to surprise him.

Alex and all the people in attendance thought they were just attending a small gathering to surprise Alex and welcome him home after being gone for more than a year. Oh boy, they were wrong. Check out the reaction below in the video!

Man, isn’t golf great?

We can’t wait to have Alex in Myrtle Beach in 2018 for his trip.

For everyone else, stay tuned! There might just be something bigger and better coming to Myrtle Beach in 2018!
