Viva Fresh Golf Tournament Adds Additional Course



MISSION, TX - Miss out on securing your spot in the Viva Fresh Golf Open? Don’t fret, because the Texas International Produce Association (TIPA) has announced that it has secured a second course to accommodate expo attendees. So, dust off your clubs and get ready for a round of golf in the Texas sunshine.

Ed Bertaud, Director of Retail Sales, IFCO and Golf Tournament Chair“Honestly, originally we had planned for less participation this year, but the demand from Viva attendees to increase this particular networking opportunity was undeniable,” said Ed Bertaud, Viva Fresh Golf Committee Chairman and Director of Retail Sales for IFCO. “Golf is one of a handful of activities that has experienced somewhat of a resurgence since the pandemic began, primarily as it is an outdoor sport. Furthermore, as a pillar of our efforts has always been to provide more relaxed yet professional networking options, we decided to act on this opportunity and answer our attendees’ demands by offering an additional option.”

The original golf tournament is being held at the Cowboys Golf Club, an 18-hole course that has been sold out since January, according to a press release. Due to overwhelming demand, Viva Fresh will host its additional tournament at the Bear Creek Golf Course, rated one of the “10 Great Places to Golf,” by The Wall Street Journal and among the “Top 50 Resort Courses in America,” as ranked by Golf Digest. In other words, this course is sure to knock your socks off.

Due to exceptional demand, The Texas International Produce Association has announced a second golf open for Viva Fresh attendees

As with its other golf tournament, Viva Fresh is arranging for transportation to and from the hotel and green, as well as providing breakfast and lunch for participants. But, space is limited, and those interested in taking part should sign up before spots are sold out.

Participation in the open will run $350 per player and $1,300 for a team. The same start and end times of play and tournament rules will apply for both courses. And, don’t forget there is a chance to earn some cash if your swing is strong enough.

Craig Slate, President and Chief Executive Officer, SunFed and Chairman, Texas International Produce Association“Not only is this a great course but it is also a chance to walk away with some cold, hard cash,” remarked Craig Slate, President and CEO of SunFed and TIPA Chairman. “There are several opportunities to cash in on the overall tournament purse: be it closest to the pin, longest drive, or overall net or gross winner. Come play, enjoy yourselves, make some new friends…and maybe take back a little green for that new putter you’ve been eyeing.”

Those interested should note that to receive a Viva Fresh Open shirt, they must be signed up and paid for by 5 p.m. CT on Wednesday, March 17. Overall registration closes next Wednesday, March 24, at 3 p.m. CT.

There you have it, folks! Take your shot at a great day of golf and the chance to win some great prizes by signing up today.
