March has always been my favorite month and not just because my birthday happens to fall on the 7th. (Well, ok maybe that is the reason). Ever since I was a little girl, March always represented new beginnings, spring break from school and usually Easter falls in March or shortly after. Not much as changed as I have gotten older and now that I live in Tampa Bay, I have a favorite event which is always around my birthday…the Valspar Championship at the gorgeous Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor. I will be attending next week for a media preview and can’t wait to celebrate my birthday at this glorious event.
Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I always enjoyed visiting Pebble Beach and admired those that love the game of golf. It is such an elegant sport and one I wish I could play. I have tried many times but just can’t get the swing of it. With that being said, I love being a spectator and Valspar is my annual golf event here in Florida. I love watching the players, enjoying the beautiful weather and indulging in the incredible food offered at Innisbrook.
This year I am excited about relaxing in the Grape & Grain area which is a great spot to enjoy wine, beer and spirits surrounded by the beauty of the course. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @tracyguida and @forkingaroundtown as I will be sharing some live coverage as well as photos while I am attending a media preview on Friday, March 9th. You can also follow the tournament on Instagram @valsparchamp for tons of great photos and tournament updates.

I will be sharing a recap of my visit shortly after the event and can’t wait to tempt you to plan on attending next year. Be sure to head over to my personal Instagram account as I will be giving away a pair of tickets and showing photos that the winner shares with me on my post. Again, my personal account is @tracyguida.
Will you be attending this year or have you attended? I would love to hear in the comments.
I better get some homework done and learn more about some of the incredible golfers that will be playing. My goal this year is to take some lessons and finally learn how to play. I am sure I will be tempted to buy some nice golf attire while at the tournament, as they always have an incredible selection in stunning colors.
See you on the course!
