SEDONA GOLF RESORT TO HOST WELLNESS GOLF TOURNAMENT

February 23rd, 2016

In Celebration of Global Wellness Day – June 11, 2016
 
SEDONA, Arizona — Sedona Golf Resort will be hosting a Wellness Golf Tournament, believed to be the first of its kind, on Saturday June 11th, 2016 in celebration of Global Wellness Day. The “Be Well. Live Well” Golf Tournament participants will not only be playing Golf but they will also be exercising along the way. 
 
Golfers will find 6-9 holes filled with exercises including, jogging, mountain biking, kettle bells, zumba, yoga, tai chi and other fitness related events.  The Sedona Athletic Club at Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock will be providing several of the instructors so that participants perform these activities correctly and safely. The Sedona Golf Resort will also be offering full complimentary access to their practice areas and driving range.
 
“Sedona is known for outdoor activities, fitness, wellness and golf, so we figured why not combine them all” said Jeremy Hayman, General Manager for Sedona Golf Resort.  “People today are looking for new, unique, community-based, healthy outdoor experiences so we are always trying to see what we can do as an organization to provide those types of event.”
 
The price of the event is $75 and will include greens fees, tournament prizes, food, drink and a great schwag bag! Those interested in participating can sign up at www.sedonagolfresort.com/well
 
The event will kick off Saturday morning, June 11th at 7:00am with healthy smoothies and sunrise yoga available.  The tournament will start at 8:00am.  The scoring will not just depend on their golf score but players will also be given tokens based on their level of participation in the Fitness events. At approximately 1PM the awards will be given to the winners across the street from Sedona Golf Resort at The Collective Sedona, where there will also be music, dance, food, drinks, healthy vendors and a farmers market.

About Sedona Golf Resort
Located in the Arizona’s stunning red rock country, Sedona Golf Resort is widely considered to feature one of public golf’s most eye-catching rounds of golf.  The Gary Panks-designed, par-71 golf course measures to 6,646-yard as it unfolds up, down, through and around some of the most intriguing country on the planet.  Panks carefully groomed the golf course to accentuate natural slopes and plunging arroyos inherent to the property.  Its aesthetic charm and challenge has led to a four-star rating from Golf Digest as well as other distinctions.  Although the golf course is reason enough to frequent Sedona Golf Resort, the clubhouse is a great place for a post-round beverage — overlooking the same wonderful views enjoyed on the golf course.  There’s a palpable romantic air to the setting. Weather tying the knot during an unforgettable ceremony or just tightening it a bit with an intimate dinner, the Juniper Grille sets the stage for passion.
