We are back in Missouri - NEW BAR- for the Fourth Annual Missouri Open. This bar is owned by a friend of Power Events so we expect it to be a great host location and the owner does lots of promotions so he is 'in tune' for what a Golden Tee Tournament is all about. Becky (from Teachers) and Shauna (friend of Paige) both work at this bar. This bar basically has two sides -- one side with pool tables and one side that will be used for the Golden Tee Tournament. The side of the Golden Tee tournament will be curtained off and be NON SMOKING during the entire time of the event. There is also a patio at the bar where you can go outside and smoke.
The bar opens @ 6:00 AM Monday - Saturday and 9:00 AM on Sundays
There are three hotels with 200 yards of this bar so no one will have to worry about taxi rides or drinking and driving -- Comfort Inn, Ramada Inn and LaQuinta Inn. There is also an In Town Suites a little further away. None of these hotels are the Ritz Carlton and I would classify them under your normal Holiday Inn but will do for you as as a place to crash for 6-8 hours a day. Read some Google reviews. We are working on getting a group rate at one of the hotels but early conversations was them wanting a guarantee of rooms. I know one player already booked the Ramada Inn @ $44 a night.
If you want a nicer hotel, I would suggest Embassy Suites by the airport or one of the Sheraton hotels by West Port Plaza - both about 15 minutes away. I think there is a Hampton Inn also close by.
