Backstory:

The WGC-Cadillac Championship has emerged as one of the must attend social events in Miami. Growing to over one hundred thousand in attendance, this has resulted from an intense strategic transformation of the event from a “tournament with great golfers” to a “world-class, premier, sports entertainment experience”. Instead of thinking “golf”, think along the lines of Moet Chandon, Joe’s stone crabs, green side cabanas, fashion shows, and concerts, on top of over $400 million investment into the clubhouse and golf course by Donald Trump and his organizations-all delivered with a service level as if attending a ?perfect wedding?.

More Information:

To date, this invite has been extended to; Kellogg, Harvard, Wharton, Georgetown, All Ivy+, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Northwestern, HBS, London School of Economics, Penn, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Vanderbilt, South Florida Xavier University, Washington and Lee, and Yale, with more to join.

More details and updates to come, including directions and expected tournament players, etc.
