Golf Events


Joe is an avid golf fan.  He belongs to a country club and plays every chance he gets.  He watches on TV and cheers for his favorites, especially Matt Kuchar.  His grandson, Reed, is a champion 13 year old golfer and Joe is his biggest fan outside of Dad & Mom.

He has hosted events for his ‘friends‘ at many of the country’s iconic golf courses.  During The Masters, ‘the Cigartainer’ and his cigar maker, Jorge, provide Cigartainment® for several legendary companies.  They have also performed at The US Open, Riviera Golf Club, Pinehurst Resort, Bay Hill, The American Club, Pebble Beach, Reunion Resorts, East Lake Golf Club, Hammock Beach Resort, Golf Club of Georgia and many others (see list below).

Joe and Jorge have met many professional golfers as evidenced in this photo album (click here).  After receiving a copy of Joe’s book, “Long Ashes, Baby,” Jack Nicklaus wrote a nice note saying, “I am pleased to have it.”  Joe and Jack have names of sons in common (Mike & Steve).

Charity golf tournaments make-up a large percentage of their Cigartainment® events.  They set-up on a tee box and Joe becomes a spokesperson for the hole sponsor.  He welcomes each group to the hole on behalf of the sponsor whose brand appears on the cigar labels.  After making a quick comment on the hole, he directs the golfers over to the table where Jorge (or one of his proteges) rolls one of his great cigars.

Joe gives a ‘play-by-play’ accounting of the action and then presents each golfer with a cigar, again on behalf of the sponsor.  It’s a fantastic sponsorship and is a mainstay for several high profile tournaments such as:  The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation, Atlanta United Way, Boys/Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, and many corporate outings.

Another large percentage of Cigartainment® events is during pairings parties or awards banquets.  If budgets are a little tight, a club can opt for cigars alone – no on-site but still the world’s finest private label premium cigars.

Of course, Joe has accumulated a lot of great stories over the years.  He is available as a speaker for your club’s ‘member/member,’ ‘member/guest’ or any other occasion.  ‘The Cigartainer’ is a member of the National Speakers Association and certainly is anything but boring.  And, he brings cigars, read ‘win-win-win.’
