In November 2018, the #MakeItRainBird giveaway was announced on Twitter. The campaign would run until the end of the Golf Industry Show in San Diego on Thursday, Feb 7th 2019. During this giveaway, new followers of @RainBirdGolf were showered with prizes, including a Rain Bird Rotor shaped USB drive, SongBirdie bluetooth speaker, U.S. Open Tumbler and U.S. Open Hat. The grand prize was an expenses paid trip to the 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
The grand prize winner of the #MakeItRainBird giveaway was announced on the stage at the Rain Bird booth. Congrats to Mel Waldron III, golf course superintendent at Horton Smith Golf Course, and his lucky guest that will join him on a trip to see the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. A true once in a lifetime opportunity.
