7:00am - 3:00pm Golf Tournament (Lunch Included)

The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club®, Orlando, Grande Lakes provides golfers with an experience not typically found in Florida. Strategically designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman and his team, the course puts special emphasis on preserving the area's well-balanced ecosystem thriving with ponds, wetlands, live oaks and cypress heads. Wide fairways, strategically placed hazards, generous landing areas and subtly contoured greens provide a challenging but fair test of a golfer’s abilities.
