Well, it doesn't have to be a dream anymore thanks to the Saturday Series. Specializing in high-end events, the Saturday Series has been going strong for 14 years and have even worked with The Golf Channel, Humana, John Deere, Barclays, Kodak, and the PGA TOUR, of course. The company also produces private events (for groups of 2 to 36) that connect amateur golfers with their idols, which would certainly impress all your club buddies.
Offered in the US, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, Saturday Series outings can work around your schedule and even be made during the regular PGA TOUR events and major championships. “The PGA TOUR plays a twelve month calendar now, there really is no down time – we can produce events during any time of the year, and anywhere there is a PGA TOUR event," says CEO John Goutell.
The Saturday Series works with more than 125 TOUR professionals a year, and have worked with over 500 in their 14-year history. The relationships formed are what makes their events possible, allowing them to craft personalized golf outings. Each private outing gives you the chance to play 18 holes with two professional golfers, making it a memorable experience filled with chatting and personal stories from your idols. The company even produces the events with your help, making sure they meet all your goals and expectations; you even get to consult on which PGA TOUR professionals will appear. Private outing prices vary depending on the status of the TOUR player guest, but generally range between $10,000 and $30,000 per group.
The Saturday Series also offers a Fantasy Day product, which gives you the choice of some pretty amazing experiences. You could choose to fly to Ireland to play some golf with Rory McIlroy and be his personal guest at the Holywood Golf Club in County Down, Northern Ireland. Or maybe you would rather head to Scottsdale, Arizona to hang out with Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson or Masters Champion Bubba Watson, or fly to Sea Island, Georgia to spend a day with Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III on the Seaside Course. A Saturday Series Fantasy Day is meant to give you the ultimate in golf experiences, affording you the chance to hang out with your heroes at their personal home clubs or even at any course of your choice. Since the Saturday Series works with pretty much every TOUR professional, you pretty much have your pick. Pricing for a Fantasy Day experience begins at $7,500, but will again, depend on the status of the PGA TOUR professional chosen.
