Some Members of Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Texas, had an incredible night recently watching Major League Soccer when FC Dallas faced off against the Seattle Sounders led by World Cup star, Clint Dempsey. A group of Gleneagles finest junior Members had the honor of escorting the FC Dallas team onto the field before the televised game.

The kids had pre-game field access and all got high-fives from Clint Dempsey and Kenny Cooper, Jr., also of the Seattle Sounders and whose father, Kenny Cooper, Sr. – who had his own formidable career playing professional
soccer – is a Member at Gleneagles.

When Kenny Cooper, Jr. recognized the kids were from Gleneagles, he stopped to say hello. It was a special moment. The kids also got to high-five the entire FC Dallas team as they came off of the field from their pre-game warm up.

In the stands sitting in mid-field seats were 50 Gleneagles Members cheering on the youngsters as well as their home-town FC Dallas team, which earned a 3-1 victory over the Seattle Sounders. It was a night both parents and kids will not forget.

When the Golf Staff at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Texas, first created STAG, the club’s weekly men’s golf gathering, they kept in mind their goal of connecting Members. Calling the event STAG fit perfectly as the word means “without a partner at a social gathering.” The nine-hole event is held Wednesday evenings with a 5:30 p.m. shotgun start and features varying formats, from Best Ball, to Scramble, even the dreaded Alternate Shot.

"We wanted to create a very low stress, fun environment that would encourage a ‘mixing’ of partners to help grow roots across the base of the Membership of the Men's Golf Association," said Chad Pinson, Head Golf Professional. 

The first STAG Night was held in 2008 and only fielded 12 players. The event has grown over the years, now fielding an amazing 70 to 80 players every week, with a growing waiting list. The demand is so great that the Golf Staff will now be blocking both the front and back nine to accommodate up to 120 players. 

"The biggest benefit we never anticipated was how important this event has become in our retention efforts," says Chad, "Once a new Member comes out and plays one of these events he immediately gets hooked to what we've got going on here."
