(Charleston, S.C.) – Buffalo Groupe, LLC, a collection of agencies, events and media properties focused on golf and other “escape” industries, acquires Baseball’s World Series of Golf, major league baseball player’s most anticipated golf event of the year at Pebble Beach Resorts®. Buffalo’s events division, Moments Live, will produce the five-night experience, continuing and enhancing the 30-year history of this successful event.
“Since launching Moments Live, we have been focused on creating memorable experiences that attendees will talk about for years to come,” said Jeff Foster, President of Moments Live and Chief Revenue Officer of Buffalo Groupe. “Baseball’s World Series of Golf brings golfers an event rich in history at an iconic course with some of the biggest names in baseball. The event embodies everything we stand for and will be a fantastic addition to our growing portfolio of experiences, which currently includes The Friars and NFL Alumni Association’s Super Bowl of Golf.”
Baseball’s World Series of Golf will be held November 29 – December 4, 2022, including five nights of accommodations at the Inn at Spanish Bay™, four rounds of golf (Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill® and The Links at Spanish Bay), two afternoon shootouts (Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill), three exceptional dinners and prizes throughout. Averaging 100 golfers each year, past players have included Greg Maddux, Jose Alvarez, umpire Joe West and many more legends and active players.
“I have played in the event for many years and it is one of my favorite weeks on my calendar,” said Maddux, a 2014 inductee into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. “Seeing old friends from baseball as well as playing Pebble Beach makes it so special.”
“For over 20 years, Baseball’s World Series of Golf has been the golf event I look forward to playing every year,” said Joe West, former Major League Baseball umpire. “I’ve had so many amazing memories and made lifelong friends with people who range from Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, to Oscar winners, to TV producers, to MLB managers, announcers and ballplayers, some of which are in the Hall of Fame. This experience brings out the best in everyone involved. There is no golf experience like this anywhere in the world.”
“Baseball’s World Series of Golf is the perfect showcase for the intersection of golf, sport and lifestyle” said Kyle Ragsdale, CEO, Buffalo Groupe. “Through Moments Live and other Buffalo properties, we look to create and celebrate these experiences and are proud to add Baseball’s World Series of golf to The Herd.”
