New ‘Strantz’ prizes announced for Sweetens Cove Shootout, Aug. 23-24; Sign Up Today!


Let’s do this. The Golf Trip Experts and Golf News Net are teaming up with Sweetens Cove for an all-you-can-golf two-day event unlike any other. Coming Aug. 23-24, 2019, we’re descending upon the King-Collins design in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, for a couple days of golf, fun, light competition, snacks (there might even be milkshakes and sticky toffee cookies) and assorted beverages of the traditional and adult variety.

How good is Sweetens Cove? And why is it already legendary among golf’s true believers? Read what our own Ryan Ballengee wrote after his first visit last summer. Or ask one of the many friends on Twitter and Instagram who champion the Sweetens cause. One time around and you’re hooked. Multiple times around and the golf course begins to reveal itself in multiple ways.

And now you can be part of this limited-field event as we also create tons of content — drone video and photography, podcasts interviews, social-media posts and more — for the GolfTripX.com website and Sweetens Cove’s worldwide marketing efforts. Rumor has it that “Talking GolfGetaways” podcast hosts Darin Bunch and Mitch Laurance will have their hickory golf clubs on hand (and Mitch might even wear his kilt) as part of the many fun festivities and formats planned for the two-day event.

Your $350 entry fee includes unlimited golf for both days, contest entries, food and beverage, welcome bag and the chance at some great prizes — including golf and an overnight stay for a foursome at Tobacco Road’s Stewart Cabin in the North Carolina Sandhills and a two-night stay-and-play at Caledonia and True Blue in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.


Thank you, and we look forward teeing it up with all of you on Aug. 23-24 at Sweetens Cove.
