This will be an exciting show with plenty to do when you aren’t enjoying the marvelous presentations we have in store for you. There is golf galore, including the world class facility we are staying at, with literally a half dozen top notch courses within minutes. The Sawgrass staff can help you set up tee times at several of them. We also get discounted rates at both the Stadium and Dye’s Valley courses on site.

I enjoyed a great meal and some libations at Alice & Pete’s Pub.
