Our Golf Tourney was a Scramble of a Good Time
Wednesday, April 7, 2010
Last Friday, April 2, Rarity Pointe hosted its 2-Person Scramble Golf Tournament. The sun was shining, and 44 teams came out for some good ‘ole fashioned competition and prizes. I’d like to thank everyone involved in making it a great tourney and a great day. Lenoir City Ford was a great partner. If you live at Rarity Pointe or were driving by, you may have seen one of their fine automobiles by the front entrance. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did!

A Rarity Pointe Perspective from Resident Ken Harper

I’ve been lucky enough to play some of the best and toughest golf courses in the country in the past couple of years and what I like about being a member at the Pointe is that the course prepares you for most any challenge. You’ll probably use every club in your bag every time you play the Pointe and it is not your typical driver-wedge course like many member-friendly courses. However, with the five tee boxes, the Pointe is enjoyable for any level of player, regardless of handicap. Being on Lake Tellico not only creates great scenic views, it also brings a variety of winds into play, and with that, club selection varies tremendously..the approach on number six can be anything from a fairway wood to an eight iron.
In the past, my golfing buddies would always schedule at least one annual golfing road trip (i.e. Alabama Trail, Myrtle Beach, etc.). Last year we decided to just have a 54-hole, two-day tournament at the Pointe with cookouts on the water each night after golf, the tournament was a tremendous success and far more fun than any road trip. This year the tournament is in such high demand that we are having to turn people away.
A Note from Resident Mrs. Christensen on the 1st Annual Rarity Pointe Golf Tourney
June 2009 – the 1st Annual Rarity Pointe Residents (and Residents-to-Be) Golf Tourney was held. We had a fun format and all ages had a fun time (ages ranged from 6th grade to well, who’s counting?!) It was a beautiful day on the course. A closest to the pin and a closest to the mid-line driving contests were held. Prizes were awarded at an evening Bar-B-Que at the home of one of the residents, and we all laughed, enjoyed going 18 and just being with the special people who live and play at Rarity Pointe!
We invite you to join in the 2010 tournament.
Greetings from Rarity Realty!

Wow, it’s a new decade, and if you’re like me you’re ready for things to start climbing back uphill. This last year has been rough for all of us, but with a new decade comes new opportunities for growth and success.
Wouldn’t it be great to invest back into your own well-being and happiness? Here at Rarity, I know most of our members choose a Rarity community because it’s that time in their lives to finally begin living out their dreams and taking full advantage of all the hard work and time they’ve been putting into their work, families and lives. These tumultous times we’ve been having put things even more in perspective and make us realize, “What have we been waiting for?”
I’ve been holding onto a little secret and I think it’s about time you’re let into the know. East Tennessee is a hidden gem, an area that people have many misconceptions about and not much real experience. Here our communities reside along beautiful lakes and rivers and at the foothills of mountain ranges that create a spectacular backdrop for living. You can awake to the sun rising and sit out on your porch watching the sun set. You can finally take up that golf game you’ve always been meaning to play. You can spend hours listening to new neighbors, some that come from the same northern town you came from and others that are ready to welcome you with their true southern hospitality.
You can have it all. I talk with our members daily and know what makes them happy here in East Tennessee. It’s the people, the beauty and the absolute freedom to live their days doing exactly as they please. All you have to do is visit to experience it all for yourself.
