Optional Golf Event is closed.

In a city internationally known for its authenticity, magnificent architecture and outstanding fare, English Turn Golf and Country Club stands out as an unmatched example of a luxurious environment with superb recreational facilities. This semi-private championship 18-hole golf course was personally designed and supervised by legendary golfer and golf course designer Jack Nicklaus. The course is designed to provide as exquisite a visual experience as it is a great golfing experience.

This Jack Nicklaus Signature Design, Par 72 Championship Golf Course presents a unique challenge to golfers of all skill levels. Every hole has an individual personality including numerous bunkers, large waste bunkers, plentiful grass, depressions and mounds which line the sculpted fairways. The property was designed with meandering lakes surrounding the golf course giving a separation from the community and a magnificent plantation style clubhouse making your visit to English Turn an unparalleled experience.

Our novice-friendly scramble format has become a favorite event. ICE charges golfers subsidized greens fees that include: transportation, carts, prizes, and lunch. The sponsoring exhibitor has the opportunity to work with the ICE golf committee to customize contests, prizes, and the luncheon. ICE does not guarantee the number of participants at this pre-conference event; all attendees and exhibitors receive an invitation to play.

The Signature Course at English Turn was originally designed in 1988 for the New Orleans PGA Tour event, which was held at the facility until 2004 and in 2006 following Hurricane Katrina. The Inaugural event was the USF & G Classic in 1989 and the course proved to be a challenge for the PGA Tour with notoriously undulating greens, water in play on seventeen of the eighteen holes and the signature fifteenth Island Green. In addition, the 18th Hole has been ranked the hardest hole on tour many times during the tournament tenure.

Culturetopia–the Ultimate High-Performance Workplace

This year, we’ve added a very special Wednesday morning workshop.

Author, speaker, and consultant, Jason Young, has been called a “rare breed” when it comes to developing leaders, teams and customer service initiatives. No wonder! As a former senior-level manager at Southwest Airlines, Jason learned the value of a successful workplace culture. During his 10 years with the airline consistently rated No. 1 in customer service and employee satisfaction, he was a key driver in creating and developing the company’s innovative training programs for its successful leadership and customer service culture that have become renowned in the business world today.

Capturing the innovative strategies and tactics he created at Southwest Airlines, Jason offers insights and practical information that can be implemented immediately. Participants are treated to a compelling experience that will change the way they view themselves, their customers and the company for which they work.

Jason’s workshops are designed to reinforce the concepts and skills geared to increase learning and assist in the transition from the meeting room to the workplace. The result is an inspirational encounter that resonates long after his presentation is over.
