Connecting Link and Guests Agenda


A very special experience is being created for the Connecting Links who attend the 45th Southern Area Conference in Orlando.  The following opportunities are offered:


 Golf Experience                     Cost: $40 and up                                           

This golf experience mixes competition and entertainment.  Golf pros stroll the tee line to offer tips while players hit microchipped balls at outfield targets. The high-tech balls instantly score the accuracy and distance of your shots.  A dynamic indoor “course,” friendly rivalry and outstanding food and drink menus add up to winning experience.  


Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Course                                        Cost: $45 and up

Spend a great day on the links at Shingle Creek Golf Club which topped the list as the Best Golf Course in Orlando in 2018 and has also been ranked nationally.  The 7228 yard course was redesigned and enhanced by Arnold Palmer Golf Design in 2016 and the results are spectacular.  Tee up to extra-long par 4s and par 5s surrounded by enchanting flora and wildlife.  Before playing a round, fine tune your swing at the 70,000 sq. ft. driving range and prepare for the tough greens on one of three immaculate putting greens, all just minutes from your hotel room. 


Corona Cigar Company       Cost: $TBD

Corona’s Cigar Company has created the “Ultimate Cigar Experience” in the heart of Central Florida.  Relax in its Central American décor while choosing a fine cigar from thousands of brands and from over a dozen different countries, including rare pre-embargo Cuban cigars.  Pair your cigar with a fine Cognac, aged single-malt Scotch, small-batch Bourbon, Prohibition-era Whiskey or pre-embargo Cuban Rum.  This is not just a cigar bar, it’s an experience!


Fishing                                                                                        Cost: $TBD

If you think Orlando is just for theme parks, think again.  Just minutes away, anglers can find some of the best bass fishing around.  Local lakes boast plenty of cover, nutrient saturated water and perfect weather.  As a result, a variety of trophy fish await.  Whether you are a seasoned fisherman or new to the sport, Orlando offers a great day on the lake. 


Card Game Tournament      Cost:  Free                       

Whether your game is Black Jack, Texas Hold’em or Spades, join your fellow Connecting Links for a friendly card game night.  We’ll provide the cards and snacks, just bring your game!
