The month of October is usually filled with Oktoberfest celebrations, Halloween decorations, and plenty of football.
Here at Plantation Bay, the October Activities and Events schedule features all of those things, plus a healthy dose of golf and tennis!
The golf and tennis seasons are really hitting their stride this month as most of the leagues have kicked off by now, and we are absolutely packed solid with great events in addition to all of the usual social activities and dinner specials.
Here are some of the great activities and events that you won’t want to miss in October:
On Thursday, September 9, the Prestwick Clubhouse will be hosting a new type of Trivia Night. The event will be led by Mitch Tidwell and will feature an a la carte menu. There will also be a Book Club meeting at the Prestwick Clubhouse on the same evening.
The Prestwick Clubhouse will also be the host of the Biketoberfest Dinner and Karaoke party with DJ Mondo on Saturday, October 18. Guests will be asked to wear their best “bike week” attire and there will be a themed a la carte menu.
The biggest party of October will be the Halloween Bash held at Club de Bonmont on Thursday, October 30.
