The Washington Wine Industry Foundation (WWIF) tees up its 13th Annual Wine Cup Monday, July 15 at Meadow Springs Country Club in Richland. This year the Shotgun Scramble will begin at 9 a.m. for a cooler climate than previous years.
Wine industry supporters, golf fanatics, wine connoisseurs, and anyone who just wants to have fun are invited to get their foursome together for a rare opportunity on one of Washington’s top rated private courses.
During the day, golfers will enjoy 18 holes on the site of numerous, prestigious tournaments, including eleven years as a PGA tour site. Contests of the day include putting, closest to the pin, and the infamous cork chipping. Following the contests will be a wine reception, awards lunch, goody bag-give-away, and awarding of prizes, including a 5-day cruise for two for each member of the Low Gross winning team.
