Bargain hunters will have another chance in September to score a deal on equipment or apparel at Black Butte Ranch’s annual Labor Day Tent Sale.

Held Sept. 4-7, the tent sale at the Big Meadow Golf Shop tees off a busy month by offering some of the best deals of the year. Merchandise will be discounted from 30 to 75 percent off retail prices, and even much of the newest equipment that stock the shelves of the golf shop will be discounted.

Of course, there are strategies to land the very best deals at such events, but otherwise it should not be difficult to find a bargain.

“Everything is going to be on sale,” says Jeff Fought, the director of golf at Black Butte Ranch. “This is one of the best chances of the year to get all the latest and greatest equipment and apparel at a great price.”

The sale will offer items from most of golf’s premier designers, and that includes Black Butte Ranch’s logoed wear and glassware.

The tent sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday through Monday. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.

For more information call the Golf Shop at 541-595-1545.
