The EMDA and FEMA Fall Conventions are scheduled for November 4 through 7 at the Rio hotel in Las Vegas. Plan to arrive one day earlier and participate in the EMDA Golf Outing at TPC Las Vegas.
Located just minutes from the Rio hotel, the award-winning championship golf course at TPC Las Vegas is one of the few PGA TOUR golf courses that can be played by the general public. From 1996-2006, TPC Las Vegas has hosted the Las Vegas Senior Classic, Bard Capital Challenge and the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is part of the PGA TOUR’s acclaimed TPC Network, which includes sister golf courses such as TPC Sawgrass, Home of THE PLAYERS, TPC Scottsdale, host of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and TPC Boston, host of the Deutsche Bank Championship.
TPC (Tournament Players Club) Las Vegas is “desert elegance” on display. From the stunning backdrop of Red Rock Canyon to the rugged natural landscape, TPC Las Vegas golf course (formerly known as TPC Canyons) offers a test to the most seasoned of golfers. This is the premier PGA TOUR property in Las Vegas making it a destination for celebrities and PGA TOUR players alike.
The Bobby Weed and Raymond Floyd design is a par 71, 7,080-yard golf course that will test your skills while dazzling you with views of the surrounding mountains, canyons and the famed Las Vegas skyline. Your shotmaking ability is put to the test early in your round on the par-3 second hole (appropriately named “Canyon”). You will need to carry your tee shot almost 200 yards from the tips to an island-like green in the middle of the desert.
The TPC Las Vegas golf course is recognized as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System. The course is located within the nation’s largest master-planned community of Summerlin and is just minutes from the world-famous Las Vegas strip.
TPC Las Vegas has received a four-star rating in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play,” been named one of their “50 Best Golf Courses for Great Service in North America”, ranked among the “Top Ten Best Golf Resorts in the USA” by Condé Nast Traveler and recently was honored with the 2013 Silver State Award, naming TPC Las Vegas the best course in Nevada.
Following a couple of email surveys, almost 30 individuals indicated interest in playing, so now it’s officially booked – we’ve got 28 slots available (the minimum we need to keep a shotgun start). If we need to add more than 28 golfers, the sooner we know, the better chance we have of adding to our group. No special tournament format is planned – just a golf outing where everyone plays their own ball.
- Shotgun start: 8:00a on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 at TPC Las Vegas.
- $250 Golf Rate Includes: Green fee and GPS enabled golf cart, practice balls and tax and transportation to and from the Rio hotel and TPC Las Vegas.
All EMDA members and FEMA members are invited to participate. Contact the EMDA office to receive a registration form. ###
