The VFTCB team will welcome guests with remarks from VFTCB President and CEO Mike Bowman, Philadelphia PGA Executive Director Geoff Surrette, and a video message from APGA’s Cole Smith.

Besides the hot air balloon, and fun with Monty the Fox – the official mascot for Montgomery County – guests will also hear announcements about upcoming promotional events for both restaurants and Montco Makers like breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

Attendees will also hear about plans for the arts for the Power Of Travel.

Then, a Scottish bagpiper and drummer will lead golfers to begin play of 18 holes of championship golf at the beautiful Bluestone Country Club for the 2021 Montco Golf Classic.

Get Ready for Golf

Golfers (who include former and current members of the Eagles and the Flyers organizations) will enjoy food and beverage out on the course and play for a chance to win a car.

The VFTCB will also debut this year’s Golf Guide to celebrate the perfect social-distancing sport to get fresh air and exercise, and the county’s 50 historic and top-ranked courses.

Content includes interviews with local pros and budget-friendly courses. Also, there will be information on country club features and unique golf holes. Plus, don’t miss APGA Tour info and the Philadelphia PGA Centennial celebration.
