Recreational Activities

In addition to the working sessions, there are extracurricular activities where participants can practice their golf game.

A golf clinic with a master teacher, a special guest speaker, an inside look at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, a tour of the PING factory, and the opportunity to play on three great local courses are some of the events planned for this year’s sessions.


The CIVANA wellness resort in northern Scottsdale is the destination and lodging site. CIVANA is a world-class spa, resort, and sanctuary catering to golf-related events. Upon arrival at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, participants will be transported to CIVANA in Carefree, Arizona, where the session will begin with an opening dinner. Our experiences conclude after our last session on Wednesday evening. Participants will return for flights from Phoenix early Thursday morning.

The investment for the session is $10,000 and is inclusive of lodging, meals, golf, and learning.
