Ace in the Hole

img_8197The Tour Championship and Beaches Town Center partner on a high-end evening to celebrate the championship, held at Atlantic Beach Country Club October 6-9, as well as showcase everything the Beaches Town Center has to offer. From featured restaurants of the Neptune and Atlantic Beach neighborhoods, exclusive St. Augustine Distillery cocktails and craft beer garden to live music, a singer/songwriter village and merchant marketplace, the inaugural North Beach Kick-off to Golf aims to provide attendees with a hyper-local experience, while generating excitement for the tournament.

The event is located in the middle of Atlantic Boulevard from East Coast Drive to First Street and features the Epicurean Food Village where restaurants will serve up delicious bites direct from their kitchens. Guests can taste each vendor’s cuisine before settling in with a craft beer, cocktail, or premium wine for the evening’s main stage performances. Participating restaurants include: Mezza Restaurant & Bar, Ocean 60, Flying Iguana, Ragtime Tavern, Slider’s Seafood Grille and Hawkers Asian Street Fare.

Merchants from the Beaches Town Center will have a collection of their store onto First Street to further entice patrons to continue south towards the Courtyard at 200 First Street where local singer/songwriters will perform, including: Mere Woodward, Katie Grace Helow, and Calahoney. However, should guests choose to make the main hub their destination for the evening, they’ll be entertained by bands like Bonnie Blue, Saltwater Grass and The Corbitt-Clampitt Experience.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Beaches Town Center on this exciting evening of food, drinks, and entertainment,” says Tour championship tournament manager Adam Renfroe, “The 2016 Tour Championship will incorporate the look and feel of the beaches area as we mesh one of the top locales in Northeast Florida with rising PGA Tour stars who will soon become household names.”

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Beaches Town Center, the central business district of the Neptune and Atlantic Beach neighborhoods. Free. October 3, 5-9 PM. Beaches Town Center.
