NEW WORLD GOLF VILLAGE SET TO TEE IT UP THIS WEEKEND
Published May 15, 1998
The World Golf Village and World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, FL, will hold a three-day, invitation-only opening this weekend, which will include a Smokey Robinson concert benefiting The First Tee initiative (World Golf Village). The only pubic admission before Tuesday's Grand Opening will be up to 1,000 people who will attend Monday's Hall of Fame inductions (FL TIMES-UNION, 5/15). The two- story World Golf Hall of Fame cost $55M (USA TODAY, 5/15). OTHER NOTES: GOLF WORLD reports that the '99 Ryder Cup is on pace to surpass the U.S. Open as the largest corporate entertainment venue in golf. As of May 1, the PGA had sold 59 corporate hospitality tents at $250,000 per tent, a total of $14.75M. In addition, sources say that ticket sales for the matches, at The Country Club in Brookline, MA, are "virtually sold out" (GOLF WORLD, 5/15 issue)....The City Council of Boulder City, NV, will begin talks with the MGM Grand to build two "upscale" golf courses in the area. The deal will prohibit gaming and it won't allow a hotel or homes along the golf course (LAS VEGAS SUN, 5/13).
