    Destination South Florida: Mountaineers Everywhere Invited to Attend Next Month’s
    Golf Event

    The South Florida Mountaineers will be hosting its 3rd annual Golf Outing and Spa
    Day at PGA National on Saturday, April 6.

    The full-day event under Florida’s blue sunny skies is a gathering for West Virginia
    alumni and friends, and includes the “Cheers Beers & Mountaineers Bash” at The
    Snuggery following the day’s activities. The Snuggery is a Palm Beach Gardens eatery
    owned by former WVU receiver Bernie Kirchner.

    The golf tournament begins at 1:30 pm on PGA National’s Squire Course. The $180
    per-person package includes cart and greens fees, the post-golf “Cheers Beers &
    Mountaineers Bash,” and a coupon for a free future round of golf on any PGA National
    course. Foursomes are $600.

    Spa packages are $160 and includes an afternoon at the renowned PGA National Spa, as
    well as the “Cheers Beers & Mountaineers Bash.”

    The post-event “Bash” at the Snuggery (2576 PGA Blvd) begins at 6:00 pm and is being
    offered for $35 for those who are unable to attend the golf and/or spa events. The
    Snuggery spread includes an open bar featuring domestic drafts and well drinks, an
