There is no that Members at Southern Trace Country Club in Shreveport, Louisiana, can not take notice of the club’s pink flamingo-themed Christmas in July display (above), which features a Santa flamingo, a bright beach ball and inner tube and even a big, pink cocktail. The stockings on the tree are even filled with promotional material they can take with them.
Rivers Club in Pittsburgh took a more dazzling approach with their display (pictured below). Strings of sparkling Christmas lights and promotional cards cover a wall, a glistening reminder that now is perfect time to plan for the holidays.
Congratulations to Philip Barbaree of Southern Trace Country Club! On July 25, he won the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship at Colleton River Plantation in Bluffton, South Carolina. Down by 5 holes with eight left to go, he made a dramatic comeback for a 37-hole win. It will go down in USGA championship history as the most holes played in the past 10 years. With this victory, he became the first Louisiana resident since 1977 to win this championship. He also matched the largest comeback in the 68-year history of the event.
Philip grew up in the junior programs and on the courses of Southern Trace Country Club. His Dallas-based instructor, Cameron McCormick, also coached 2015 U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth.
Way to go, Philip! We’re proud to have you as a Member in the ClubCorp family!
