The Ultimate Car Show at Pebble Beach

I knew I was in for a treat when I traveled to Pebble Beach this past weekend with Infiniti. Any trip to the beautiful Bay Area that included a visit to the iconic Pebble Beach golf course would be memorable. But visiting during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance provided a completely unique experience. The Concours ranks as the most prestigious classic car show in the world. I was stunned by the number of beautiful cars that were on display. It’s a car enthusiast’s dream event, but anyone who appreciates great cars would have an unforgettable experience.

Infiniti took the opportunity around this event to introduce two impressive concept vehicles, including the JX Concept crossover which made its debut at an elegant evening event and the Etherea concept which was introduced for the first time in North America. The Etherea was introduced on Saturday morning on the 18th green at Pebble Beach, which would be the location for the Concours on Sunday (see photo below).

The Concours is the signature event for car enthusiasts, so all weekend we saw a virtual parade of amazing vehicles. Everywhere you turned you could spot old and new Ferraris, Bugattis, Rolls Royces, Aston Martins, Lambos and more, along with classic American cars as well. In the days leading up to Sunday, tons of vehicles we on display. One of my favorites was this 1968 Dodge Charger R/T:

The Golf Round Bucket List: Augusta National Golf Club

Welcome to a new feature where we examine the best golf courses the world has to offer, and daydream about playing them before we die. First up, naturally, is the course that is frequently rated the #1 golf course in the world and the host of the Masters, the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Here are some quick hits on the club and the course.

Open for play: 1934
Membership: The club has around 300 members at all times, and they are selected by invitation only. Dues are said to be around $10,000 per year, as the club makes the majority of its money from hosting the Masters, but despite those relatively affordable dues, you’re not getting an invitation to join unless you’re rich, famous, or politically connected, and you’re not playing the course unless you know one of those 300 people.
Total Length: 7,435 yards, or roughly a mile longer than the course you play on the weekends
Yes, it’s true: There are no women members, though they finally accepted a black member in 1990.

When you watch those helicopter shots of each hole on TV, Augusta doesn’t look like a terribly hazardous course, but thanks to an abundance of trees, undulated greens and tee boxes that are a good 30 yards farther back than they were six years ago, there is scant room for error. Take a look at the green for the seventh hole, Pampas: it’s protected by five (!) bunkers, so if you don’t stick the green, you’re throwing a beach party. Then there is White Dogwood, hole #11, where you need to hit the ball at least 265 yards just to make it to the fairway. The course’s toughest hole, though is the tenth, Camelia. (All holes are named for the trees or plants that line each particular hole.) The back half of the hole slopes downhill though the green is slightly elevated, with a bunker to the right and a monstrous, storm cloud-shaped bunker in the middle of the fairway just before the green. No one wins the Masters on the 10th hole, but lots of people have lost it here.

The hole we’re most eager to play, though, has to be Rosebud, the par-3 16th hole where, in 2005, Tiger Woods made the most spectacular shot we’ve ever seen.

How on earth did he do that? As Verne Lundquist said, never in our lives have we seen such a thing, but here’s hoping that someone makes us take that statement back this weekend.

  

Playmates show off after the Palm Springs Playboy Golf Scramble

Each November, Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in the Palm Springs, CA area hosts the annual Palm Springs Playboy Golf Scramble. This past weekend, the San Diego Playboy Golf Scramble was held. Following that, lots of Fantasy Springs VIP casino players (who also played in the San Diego tournament), the four Playboy Playmates and dozens of Girls of Playboy Golf from the San Diego event rode a party bus for the weekend afterparty at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. On Saturday night, the resort held a private VIP party in its picturesque 12th Floor Wine Bar. The four Playmates in attendance are also members of the Playboy Dancers and treated the audience to an impromptu routine.

Many casino players and many Girls of Playboy Golf spent the night at the luxurious resort. The next day, they lounged at the pool and expansive sundeck and noshed on some great food.

  

Trunk Organizer for Golfers

With Father’s Day coming up next weekend, we’re going to be featuring some cool products for dads, and we’ll be putting a bunch of them together in a full guide that will be published later this week.

We’re kicking things off with this cool trunk organizer from Samsonite. It’s a great gift for any guy who loves to golf, and it will help him organize that messy trunk.

The organizer is the ideal size for any trunk or back seat. With two levels, it fits nicely in the trunk but it doesn’t take too much space. The bottom level has room for three shoes, so you can fit more than golf shoes. The ventilated mesh front door makes it easy to see what’s in there and it makes it possible to air out the shoes while storing them.

The top level has a bunch of compartments to store all sorts of stuff, from phones, to sunglasses and cigars, along with golf gear like gloves and tees. It also has movable dividers so the user can customize it in the way that fits his needs. There’s plenty of room for stuff like shirts, shorts, jackets and more.

It’s a great gift, and you may want to pick one up for yourself as well.

Bullz-Eye is heading to Palm Springs next weekend for the “Ultimate Fantasy Weekend” that will be hosted by the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and presented by PlayerXT. It’s two days of bikini contests, the National Bikini Pillow Fighting Championships, a golf tournament and more that will be attended by 30 models, 4 Playmates and a handful of NFL stars.

The Ultimate Fantasy Weekend festivities at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino kick off on Friday, May 21st at 7:00p.m. at the Fantasy Springs pool deck. The bikini pageant and competition gets underway just after 7:00p.m., followed by the National Bikini Pillow Fighting Championships. For this, two bikini-clad models stand on floating rafts facing each other in the Fantasy Springs pool. Armed with oversized pillows, the women try to knock the other off her raft. The winners of the bikini contest and the Pillow Fighting Championships are crowned Saturday evening at 7:30p.m. during the awards party. Thirty models who have graced the pages of national magazines, as well as four Playmates (Shallan Meiers, Stacy Fuson, Stephanie Heinrich and Tyran Richard), will be on hand for the weekend’s events. NFL players Shaun Phillips, Stephen Cooper and Larry English from the San Diego Chargers, and newly acquired Denver Bronco Akin Ayodele add to the Ultimate Fantasy Weekend’s star power.

We were happy to be invited by our friends at PlayerXT to attend the event, and we expect to get some great photos and model shoots from the event so we’ll keep you posted! We’ll also put together a full review of the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, from the luxury accommodations to the casino and the golf course.
