adidas Golf Announces Limited-Edition Footwear Inspired By Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwich

CARLSBAD, CA – adidas wants you to know that some majors are worth melting for. Today, adidas Golf announced the availability of a limited-edition version of the popular Crossknit 3.0, where the special design is inspired by the Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwich that’s often enjoyed by many during the month of April inside the gates off Magnolia Lane. The footwear will be available in limited quantities beginning April 8 at 8:00 a.m. PT, and only on .

While this special design is inspired by the Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwich, luckily after fans unwrap these they won’t melt in your hands. Just like the cookies on the outside of the sandwich, the rubber outsole and BOOST midsole take on a distinct sugar cookie-like colorway, representing the cookie crust of the ice cream sandwich. It wouldn’t be an ice cream sandwich without these sugar cookies, just as the Crossknit 3.0 wouldn’t be the same without BOOST, the best cushioning in the game that offers endless energy return.

The upper represents the mouth-watering Georgia Peach Ice Cream portion of the sandwich, with a creme colorway that looks good enough to eat. The water-repellant textile upper of the Crossknit 3.0  also features reinforcements on the sides of the shoe for support where golfers need it most.

Since the peach ice cream is what gives the sandwich its unique flavor, as an added touch, the Crossknit 3.0 includes a special sockliner that shows scoops of the famous ice cream.

“The menu items found at the year’s first major are talked about almost as much as the holes on the course,” said Masun Denison, global director of footwear, adidas Golf. “Fans everywhere loved our limited-edition pimento cheese version of the original Crossknit BOOST that we designed in 2017, so we had to whet their appetites once again with another favorite that patrons enjoy.”

Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa Sights Uptick in Family and Ladies Golf Getaways

GALENA, IL – Golfers including guys, gals, kids, and families alike are already driving, putting and chipping on one of the most scenic and rewarding courses in Illinois. The North Course has officially opened for the season at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa (Eagle Ridge) in Galena, Illinois with the additional three championship golf courses, including one of the top one hundred courses in the country, The General, slated to open this month.  While the traditional guys golf trip is still popular, Eagle Ridge has experienced a significant increase in family golf getaways and ladies golf.

“Families are planning more leisure-oriented golf resort vacations so they can spend quality time together while doing what they all enjoy in one location, said Reagan Davis, 28-year PGA professional and golf director at Eagle Ridge.  “From world-class golf, spa and dining to kid-friendly activities like swimming, horseback riding, and fishing, a resort like Eagle Ridge is perfect as it provides something for everyone,” continues Davis.

Ladies group golf trips and women golfing in general at Eagle Ridge is also more popular than ever. Davis estimates that the resort is almost double the national average for women golfers. According to the

National Golf Foundation’s 2018 Golf Industry Report, women comprise 24 percent of all golfers, an increase of more than 13 percent over the prior five years.1

The North Course now open was designed by legendary Roger Packard and thoughtfully incorporates the scenery, the landforms, and is characterized by elevated tee boxes and stunning views of Lake Galena and the surrounding countryside in The Galena Territory. The signature hole is #8, which is a 165-yard par 3 with 80 feet of elevation change from tee to green. The tee shot on #8 crosses the corner of Lake Galena, opening up to a spectacular view of the lake and its majestic rock outcroppings.

The three other courses at Eagle Ridge – the East Course, the South Course and The General – will open as weather and ground conditions continue to improve.

Families and groups can take advantage of several golf packages that feature spa, dining, lodging and green fees.
