Nine & Wine has become a popular concept at facilities across the country. Snake River Sporting Club in Jackson, Wyoming took it one step further by hosting wine clinics on the range. Called the “Wine’d-Up Clinic,” several local wineries are invited free of charge to hand out samples – which they happily agree to for the promotional benefits. “This creates a relaxed dynamic between casual learning and local wine sampling for our members and their guests,” says PGA Head Professional Kali Quick, who worked at Snake River during the program’s inception. “Because they are not charged, the vendors are happy to attend and give away small amounts of their favorite products to build recognition for some of the great local wines we have in the Jackson area.”
