For the past 42 years, Apple Mountain Golf Club has used its Labor Day Tournament as a way to thank its customers, both longtime and new. This year is no different as the club tees off on one of America’s favorite holidays, Labor Day, Monday Sept. 7.
Apple Mountain opened up for business around Labor Day in 1973 and has been hosting its Labor Day Tournament from the get-go.
“It started as pretty much a grand opening type event and has evolved over the years into something much bigger,” said Drew Kiszonak, whose family has owned Apple Mountain from the start. “It is a way to thank our customers and a way for our customers to enjoy a great day of golf on a great day for the United States.”
For those who want to get a head start on the Labor Day Holiday Weekend festivities, Apple Mountain is featuring the Kerry BLUE Band on Saturday night from 5 to 9 p.m. and a special Happy Hour celebration from 5 to 7 p.m.
The tournament is scheduled for Labor Day, Monday Sept. 7. On-site check in and registration begins at 11 am, with an All-American hot dog lunch from 12 noon to 1 p.m. The shotgun start begins at 1, with a celebratory buffet dinner including a Pig Roast Finale and BBQ scheduled for 6 p.m.
The tournament, a 2-person scramble, has grown in leaps and bounds over the years and remains one of the club’s most popular events. In appreciation of its customers, this year’s tournament costs just $42 per golfer in honor of the anniversary (plus tax & gratuity). This includes 18 holes of golf, lunch, buffet dinner and awards. Guests are invited to the dinner for just $17 per person (includes tax & gratuity). The Pig Roast Finale is also open to the public. The evening also includes special drinks and menu selections.
