American Corporate Events
Over the weekend, I went to golf Mecca, well at least one of them. Hosted by American Corporate Events of Tarrytown, I was treated like a long lost cousin of Arnie or Jack at the 2008 Masters Tournament. I am still pinching myself a bit after walking the course with the best of the best.
The course was so pristine and clean, it was like a rug of green carpeting with magazine worthy landscaping at every step. And the respect the attendees have for this place, there was not a stitch of garbage anywhere on the course, just green grass and lunar white sand bunkers that blinded you if you dare look to long. It was a great weekend and first class all the way. Great job Masters and American Corporate Events - In and Around Rockland in Tarrytown, NY 914-524-8350

The Masters is a time when companies from across the world say thanks to their employees and clients. They give them the five-star treatment in their hospitality suites.
Named after the same beautiful flowers you see inside the Augusta National, the three-story Azalea Club is giving its clients a masterful experience.
â€œThis is an unbelievable venue, first class,â€ said Todd Ingram of Arizona.
It’s five-star treatment that meets Southern hospitality. You can eat freshly prepared Southern cuisine in one of their two dining rooms, from the main dishes to the desserts you’ll never run out of options.
â€œYou can’t get anymore southern than grits and collard greens,â€ said Ellen Robinson of New Jersey.
â€œThe food is phenomenal the service, everyone here is very friendly, the weather is beautiful, you just can’t ask for more,â€ said Ingram.
When you’re done, head to the 3rd floor and kick back at their open bar or relax while watching the tournament on one of several wide-screen televisions.
Got an itch to play on the green? Just step outside and enjoy this putting area.
â€œEveryone’s smiling having fun, it’s true Southern hospitality,â€ said Ira Levine.
Levine is a managing partner for a hospitality suites company. He says his clients sign up a year in advance. It’s a complete package of transportation, housing and other amenities.
â€œWe contract years in advance, we have to get prepared early because it takes a good nine months to get this right for the one week we are at the Masters,â€ he said.
If you have a hard time leaving the office behind, there is also a business center on the lower level of the club.
Levine says his clients come from as far away as Japan.
