AUGUST 9-10, 2017
Get Away with us for this 5th Annual golf excursion! Enjoy fantastic golf on Cape Cod and the delights of the historic African American vacation destination of Martha’s Vineyard, with plenty of exciting attractions, tours, exhibitions and activities for all to enjoy.
Set on the Northeastern coast, south of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, the “Vineyard” is well-known for being an affluent summer respite for individuals and families seeking a serene, nature-rich locale to spend a few days or weeks. With a total of 124.6 miles of tidal shoreline (spread over six small towns) the year-round population of the Vineyard is about 15,500 with this number swelling to 115,000 in the summer!
Thus, the Vineyard is a very, VERY popular destination….especially during the month of August, when it becomes a prime vacation spot for many successful “Black elite” who fly in—or dock their mega-yachts in the harbor. Those seen “out-and-about” include music moguls, award-winning actors, artists, foreign dignitaries, and others. Yeah, celebrity spotting is the norm here.
Specifically, the town of Oak Bluffs sees its annual share of upscale prominent individuals including President Obama and his family who frequent the island during August. The President has been spotted spending quality time biking with his family, golfing with friends and even picking up his order from Nancy’s the local oceanside outdoor cafe.
Black families across the nation have discovered Martha’s Vineyard to be a place of nice respite and recreation. The population of Oak Bluffs during summertime was 50 percent long before Spike Lee purchased his home there. Notables who regularly visit include the Kennedy’s, Clinton’s, Vernon Jordan, Michael Jordan, Charles Ogletree, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte and many other distinctive individuals of the world.
Make this summer one to remember by giving yourself a grand vacation stay on Martha’s Vineyard. The island is full of great attractions, craft fairs, art galleries, flea markets, charter fishing, quaint boutiques, restaurants and shops for unique finds. There is an endless variety of pubs, bars and other social establishments covering a large cultural spectrum including Soul Food, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Greek, French, Scottish, and more.
Great events that have occurred along with our 5th Annual Golf Tournament week, and days following, include the African American Film Festival, Built on Stilts Festival, 6th Annual Martha’s Vineyard Comedy-Fest, and lots, lots more!!!
