Wine Down Wednesdays

Vino-Inspired Event Coming to Golden Ocala

Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club ages like fine wine — wine that is coming to a Wednesday near you! On January 24th, the club will launch ‘Wine Down Wednesday,’ a four-session event that brings fun, golf and drinks together in a noncompetitive, friendly environment. So, how can members take advantage of this team-centric, midweek activity, happening right on our championship-level, state-of-the-art golf course? We thought you’d never ask …


Golf, Taste & Be Merry

The process is quite simple — golfers contact Golf Director Ryan Gray and register for ‘Wine Down Wednesday’ as an individual, twosome or foursome. After submitting $30 per golfer, per session, they will enjoy a round of golf, while indulging in wine and craft beer samples, served at three drink stations that are set up on the course during the game. After the game, golfers can make their way to recently-renovated Raspberry’s for wine and beer, FREE with the purchase of any entrée, and three hours of live music on the veranda.

Of course, Golden Ocala staff will have fabulous prizes ready for the overall winner of the ‘Wine Down Wednesday’ League for points that are awarded each week to winners — and even those who are not having the best of luck with their golf swing. And to keep things interesting, each session is themed and includes a shotgun start.
