We are in the home stretch! The Kraft Nabisco Championship—as everyone knows, “golf’s first major”—is almost here and I can just taste it. But before the actual competition begins, there are a number of fun events to attend, including one that fills the Palm Springs Valley with hoards of famous people: the two-day Celebrity Pro-Am on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 26-27.
I’m not one for rattling off lists of people, but I just HAVE to let you all know about the gaggle of guys and gals from Hollywood and the music and sports worlds who will be on hand to play a few rounds with some of the most legendary female golfers on earth. Come on over to the Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage and keep your eyes peeled for Alice Cooper, Johnny Bench, Kevin Nealon, Cheech Marin, Kevin Sorbo, Craig T. Nelson, Larry David (love that crazy character!), Dennis Haysbert, Ed Marinaro, Scott Wolfe, Smokey Robinson, Javier Colon, Joe Mantegna, Thomas Gibson, and John O’Hurley—to name just a few!
I’ll have my weekly pass (at just $115 it’s quite the bargain!), but day passes for the Pro-Am are only $15/day, and the rest of the week they’re $25/day. It’s going to be a great week and I hope to see you all there. www.kncgolf.com
