2018 Annual Convention and Exposition

Event Highlights

Golf Tournament at the Omni Orlando Resort

Wednesday, September 26
7:00 am–1:00 pm

It's just a short walk or shuttle ride over to the National Course at the Omni Orlando Resort. With its traditional American-style design, the National Course challenges golfers with 18 holes that wind through 200 acres of secluded woodlands, wetlands, and former orange groves.

The course features gently sweeping fairways, 80 sculpted bunkers, greens maintained in tour condition, clever doglegs, and scenic water hazards. Water comes into play on many holes, but few forced carries means that all levels of players can maneuver this layout. The sharply framed golf holes end up on smaller greens, making it a shot maker's delight.
