SGS Golf Tournament | Shotgun/Scramble Format (Ticketed Event - $199)
Tuesday, March 21st | 1:30 PM - 6:45 PM


Join this fun competition among colleagues on the Starr Pass Resort’s Arnold Palmer-designed Rattler/Roadrunner course. The format will be a four-person scramble, eighteen-hole tournament where everyone hits a shot (the best ball is chosen, everyone hits the next shot from there and this continues until the ball is holed out). We encourage all to play as there is no pressure on anyone except to have a good time with your colleagues and cocktails on a beautiful golf course. The $199 fee covers the round of golf, golf cart, four drink tickets and prizes for the first and second place teams, longest drive: men and women, and closest to the pin: men and women.

Club rental is an additional $75 and can be included via your registration form. 


Yoga with Mireille Truong (Ticketed Event - $25)

Come join me for a Vin/Yin Yoga class!

Class will start with a Fun Vinyasa Flow and end with some Chill Yin yoga. It's the perfect combo to relax, renew, stretch, decompress from the meeting and prepare for the evening events. Vinyasa flow will focus on linking conscious breath with a vigorous and mindful flow complemented by a yin practice that promotes joint health, can prevent injury, encourages balance. Yin yoga focuses on lengthening connective tissue typically in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Postures are typically held for 3-10 minutes fostering relaxation, boosting energy.
