We follow a successful agenda of sharing ideas and goals to build our brand. Issues and initiatives that are pertinent to the brand are discussed. Each Allied Partner Supplier meets with the decision makers for the brand to show case their products and services.

The Historic Blue Monster Course for our Tournament on Wednesday, April 21, 2021


With legendary architect Gil Hanse at the helm, our historic Blue Monster Course has undergone a complete redesign and has become a new golf course thus reaffirming its reputation as one of the most challenging and spectacular golf courses in existence.

The famous 18th hole is traditionally ranked as one of the most difficult on the PGA TOUR. It is no surprise that virtually every great name in golf has had a moment of personal triumph on this world-class course (Jack Nicklaus won twice, Greg Norman three times and Tiger Woods four). Nor is it any surprise that it has been host to the PGA TOUR for 55 consecutive years.
