Media group visits Fourteen golf media mem- bers from across the United States visited and played Graeagle golf courses as part of the Golf the High Sierra Media Tour, Friday, June 11. The group played White- hawk Ranch and Plumas Pines on the last day of a six- day tour that took in some 180 holes of golf in Reno, Tahoe, Carson Valley and Graeagle. Longboards Restaurant hosted dinner for the group, and overnight lodging was provided by several Graea- gle-area motels, B&Bs and vacation rentals. The media represented magazines, radio stations and online media from as far as New England, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin and Colorado, as well as the Bay Area. The journalists already have begun to promote this golf destination, with arti- cles appearing online and stories heard over the air- ways, with print publica- tions soon to come. The Plumas County Visi- tors Bureau once again helped co-sponsor the annual event, organized by Wei- dinger PR agency, which last year brought exposure to the region through 61 articles, plus radio mentions equaling over $1 million in ad equiva- lency value (what the same editorial space generated would have cost if purchased as advertising.) n m  n m i  I I u m m m I m  n m m I  m u I m N t *COUPON SPECIAL* n t I Play any day after 1:00 - Includes FREE Cart .,., , !
