CHIDO presents the first Annual Malbon Invitational
Held at Nassau County Club
CHIDO and Malbon Golf came together this summer to host the first annual Malbon Invitational at Nassau Country Club.
This invite only outing ended up being a great day to grip it and rip it, with some serious bites, and stellar drinks for golf lovers as well as, tequila lovers alike.
Stephen and Erica Malbon, the LA couple behind Malbon Golf themselves came to bring on the action. The Malbon Golf Club is an invite-only golf and social club. The MGC hosts exclusive monthly tournaments at clubs all over the country that cater to professional athletes, entertainers, artists and creatives alike.
Other sponsors of the event included famous golf brand Taylormade and the notable Dos Hombres tequila that is quite popular for their fragrant mezcals.
Let’s not forget to thank Cavita CBD for setting the vibe with their refreshing CBD infused drinks all day!
Nassau Country Club is a private country club established in 1896, that is nestled on the North Shore of Long Island in Glen Cove.
It was such an honor to have this event at this astonishing country club that was founded nearly 125 years ago. Let alone rich in history, being the original home of the Nassau bet.
Divised by prominent member J.B. Coles Tappan, the system sprouted from the embarrassment members would face in vogue magazine back in the day for their defeats in inter-club matches. Objecting to the taunting of defeat, J.B. created the Nassau bet. A gentlemanly way of playing that allows a player to regain his game on the back nine for a chance to gain a tie.
The golfers who participated in this all day tournament came fully prepared to bring epic energy and enthusiasm to the game we all know and love. Making this Invitational an action filled day with plenty of positive vibes to go around.
Just to add a little bit of spice to this outing we gave attendees a chance to win $5,000 with a hole-in-one at Hole #10. We were secretly hoping everyone would be drunk by this point (and we were right.) The suspense at this hole was just one you had to be there to see!
Regardless, the pre-round festivities featured the epitome of excitement and lively entertainment from NYC based DJ Sinatra.
We started off strong with stretching booths to get these athletes all warmed up. Followed by an impressive putting contest where we witnessed some of the most thrilling flushers in the Short Game area. We even set up a chido photo booth to capture the happy faces all around and the most important part of the whole day, the Chido Bar (we all know what everybody really came for!)
We just can’t leave out some of the legends who came to be here and participate in the tournament including the team from Golf Digest.
