Fore!!... Or was it five? Cannabis gets into golf
Blazing it up on the fairways
Words: The Brigadier
Ohhh, mannn,... I got the munchies real bad... where's the cart girl?! On 9th November, Matt Enos is launching the Fore Twenty “Harvest” Tournament, an event designed to get ‘cannabusiness professionals’ out networking on the golf course.
On 9th November, Matt Enos is launching a rather unique golfing event – the Fore Twenty “Harvest” Tournament. It’s an event that is designed to get cannabis business people, or ‘cannabusiness professionals’ as they are now apparently known, out networking on the golf course.
Enos wanted to buck the common stereotype of a stoner who could barely be bothered to get off the couch, let alone play 18 holes. So, all aboard the weed bus, hippies, let's get wasted. And play golf.
"My focus is to paint a picture of good times, spread awareness, and offer a way to get your brand out there and network in a manner that's different and selective," he explains. "I'm all about getting businesses together at an event where it's not in another hall – just getting out in an intimate setting to talk business, network, and have a good time."
The tournament takes place in southern Oregon at the Cougar Canyon Golf Course, and while he expects a smaller pool of participants due to harvest season, he's nonetheless excited.
"The tournament is designed for teams of four, and every golfer gets to take home cannabis provided by Novik Industries that's been canned by N2 Packaging. We also have a fantastic promo with Shine and Urban Farms – we rolled 140 joints with Shine papers, and then we dipped it in Looking Glass oil," says Enos. "Everything's tested and labeled, and we have some great sponsors who will be giving away additional items.”
Hang on. did I just say that or did I just think it?....
