Gilleon & NFL Pros Tee-up for Big Brothers Big Sisters


Fisher, Gilleon, Curtis, Dickerson
"Greenwich Workshop artist Tom Gilleon has appeared in the Big Sky, MT. Celebrity Golf Tournament for the past two years and donated a painting of one of his widely collected and iconic teepees to help raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters.  This year the charity tournament raised more than $45,000.  In the  photo, from left to right, are Coach Jeff Fisher, head coach of the St. Louis Rams, Tom Gilleon, Isaac Curtis, former wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals and Eric Dickerson, former running back for the L.A.Rams and the Indianapolis Colts."
 
Is there a more unique experience than golf set against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains
16th Hole, The Reserve at Moonlight Basin
Legends may be born at Augusta, St. Andrews is the storied home of links and Pebble Beach, well, is Pebble Beach.? But as artist Tom Gilleon says about The Reserve at Moonlight Basin, “There is absolutely no way golf can spoil a good walk here.”
 
If the grandeur of this Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Big Sky, Montana can’t inspire your game, consider yet another bonus of golf at 7,500 ft: your ball soars further. At higher altitudes the thinner air offers less resistance. Every 1,000 feet of altitude above sea level can add 2% more distance to a given shot. Expect to gain an additional 10% or more of ball travel on a full swing.
