Sports Day – Monday, October 26
Golf Tournament at Players Course
Opening to rave reviews for its classic American design, “The Beast” pays homage to great designs such as Riviera, Winged Foot and Augusta National. Similar to the Celebrity Course design, seven sets of tees were included to make the course fun and playable for all golfers in spite of the course measuring a massive 7,375 yards from the back tees. Ominous bunkers placed throughout the undulating topography of the Players Course provide the perfect complement to the mature trees and natural desert arroyos. While playable for all, the Players Course was designed to challenge the most skilled
golfers; therefore making it a perfect forum for competitive golf.
