9:00 am Conference Registration / Welcoming Refreshments
10:00 am Wide World of Sports – Golf Edition
A golf course that hugs snow-capped mountains, meanders past glacial-fed lakes and through a wildlife corridor featuring elk, caribou, bears and wolves. Highly acclaimed for its challenging layout and spectacular beauty, the Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club is rated by SCOREGolf Magazine as the #1 Best Golf Resort in Canada. Today, this award-winning par 71 golf course remains one of the ”must play” courses in Canada; it’s a true classic that combines the best of what golf is all about.
Dress code. No hard spikes.
10:30 am – noon
noon – 1:30 pm
