Golf Course Grand Cypress
About the Course
Set in the midst of an open meadow, the Links Course is Jack Nicklaus’ tribute and homage to the famed Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. This Scottish links masterpiece is complete with double greens, stone bridges and walls, gorse mounds, burns and pot bunkers as deep as 12 feet—all in the spirit of the true Scottish original. Very little water comes into play on the course, but when it does it will challenge you. Limited trees are located within the interior of the course, creating generous landing areas. However, an errant tee shot could find its way into one of our 150 pot bunkers.



Hosted by Peter Fecci, MD, PhD and Haley Fortier
Friday, March 8
3:00–5:00 pm
Juniper Ballroom

Wine Tasting Event
Join Program Chair and Level 3 Sommelier Peter Fecci, as well as Downing Lecturer, restaurant owner, and 2019 Food and Wine Sommelier of the Year Haley Fortier, for a delicious tour of some of their preferred “off-the-beaten-path” wines. Wines will be accompanied by a selection of chic, carefully curated tinned fish (an increasingly popular European delicacy) from Haley’s highly acclaimed Boston restaurant, haley.henry. This unique tasting experience is sure to leave you with a new appreciation for beautiful examples of sustainable food and wine. Details and registration coming later this year!
