    It's Official - THP Fall Outing Announcement

    THP is pleased to announce that the Fall Outing is now official. We have partnered with what we consider to be one of the finest golf resorts in the world and that is PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL to host this great event.



    PGA National Resort & Spa (www.pgaresort.com) has been recognized by numerous golf publications as one of the top resorts in the U.S. and is the only resort to host a Ryder Cup, PGA Championship, and a regular stop on the PGA TOUR (The Honda Classic).

    We held the Spring Outing & Demo Day and felt it was a huge success, but this is a different animal all together. In many ways, this will be a "first of its kind" type of outing and we think that it will be a memorable weekend for everybody that is able to make the trip to West Palm Beach and this incredible resort. The weekend will be filled with golf each day as well as time for food, drinks, and fun.

    Where & When
    PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
    September 17th-19th 2010



    Itinerary
    Friday Evening
    Social Gathering where everybody can relax unwind and meet fellow THP'ers.

    Saturday
    Morning - Driver & Iron Demo Day
    This is going to be a unique opportunity for people to try out drivers and irons from many different manufacturers. We will be able to provide information on each club and have a launch monitor on site for assistance.

    Afternoon - 18 Holes
    Round of Golf at one of the PGA National Resorts amazing courses. The format is TBD.

    Evening - THP Dinner
    THP is hosting a dinner buffet for everybody on us where all of the participants can relax and unwind and have food and drinks with fellow THP'ers. PGA National Resort & Spa has been gracious in assisting us in putting together a menu that we think everybody will enjoy.

    Sunday
    Morning - Putter & Wedge Demo Day
    Another unique opportunity for people to try out putters and wedges from tons of different manufacturers. We will be able to provide information on each club and golfers will be able to try out different items to determine what fits their game.

    Afternoon - 18 Holes
    Round of Golf at one of the PGA National Resorts amazing courses. The format is TBD.

    Evening - Dinner for those that are still around and want to get together.



    What's It Cost
    Single: $233.67 - Per Night
    Double: $151.24 - Per Night
    Deluxe resort accommodations with private balcony or terrace
    Full American Buffet breakfast daily
    One Round of Golf per person, per night
    Driving Range usage daily
    Golf bag storage
    *rates are per person, per night including 11.5% Tax and Resort Fee
    Resort Charge: A Resort Charge, per room, per night is included in all guestrooms utilized and included in the above rates. The Resort Service Fee includes unlimited local calls and long distance access (toll free, credit card, and collect calls), a daily morning newspaper for each room, in-room coffee, turn-down service, wireless internet access in hotel guestrooms and unlimited admission to the Health and Racquet Club Facilities.

    The cost is broken down by golfer per room.
    Examples - If a husband and wife are coming and both golfing the cost would be $151 per person per night. If that same husband and wife are coming and only one of them is golfing, the cost would be $233 for both of them per night. It is based on the # of golfers per room.

    The cost includes Golf, Room, Breakfast each day, THP Dinner, Demo Days, & Range Balls. Other meals and drinks are not included.

    *For those staying an additional night but not playing golf, PGA National Resort has helped out with that as well.
    Single - $180.42
    Double - $97.99
    This would be for people wanting to check out Monday instead of Sunday after a long day of golf.



    Things to Know
    Contests
    THP will be holding contests throughout the event for many items. Based on play and other fun ideas we have.
    Driver - TBD
    Wedges - TBD
    Putter - TBD
    Rangefinder - TBD
    GPS - TBD

    Stay & Play
    This is a Stay & Play Event and is only available for those that choose to sign up for the outing and are staying on property.

    THP Members Only
    The Fall Golf Outing is available for THP members only and family of THP members. If a member would like to invite a friend we ask that they please sign up for the forum first. This outing is not open to the general public and will once again be no sales reps allowed. It is something that our members loved about the last outing and we are keeping it this way again.

    The THP Fall Golf Outing is only available to a maximum of 50 golfers. We are limiting it for a reason, so if you are planning on going, you must sign up by contacting myself or Golfer Gal via email so that we can add you to the list. josh@thehackersparadise.com or golfergal@thehackersparadise.com

    Once you sign up, you will receive instructions on booking your room through the resort.

    Misc.
    Anybody under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
    Rates will be extended for those that want to check in or check out early or late.
    Shuttle Service from the airport is available ($30 per person) so no rental car is needed.
    We are still debating on whether to play The Champion Course (where Honda Classic is played). The cost is an extra $50 per person for the round. But all the courses there are amazing.
    Childcare services are available with Kids Club Wednesday-Saturday from 10 am- 4 pm. The ages for the camp are 5-12.
    THP Outings are available for golfers of all skill levels and men and women alike.

    Palm Beach Gardens is home to fabulous beaches and shopping as well as this amazing resort that most will never want to leave.

    To check out this fabulous resort and spa, go to their website at www.pgaresort.com

    THP Radio recently put together a show featuring complete itinerary as well as tons of information on the resort and what to expect at this outing.

    https://thehackersparadise.com/home/?p=9056

    EDIT: The $50 Champion Course Upgrade fee has now been waived.
    i-Bar is now offering all THP Members 2 for 1 drinks during the stay.

    That looks awesome! Too bad for me that I'm a good friend. I have to be in a wedding on the 18th so I won't be able to make it to this one.

    You'd want to fly into Palm Beach or Ft. Lauderdale most likely.

    West Palm Beach. It is the other coast of FL. Southwest flies there for those looking.

    West Palm Beach looks to be the closest. Miami might be cheaper flights?

    Ok thanks! I'm not familiar with Florida so...anyways!! As of TODAY!! I plan on being there regardless if I have to come by myself or not. The logistics of exactly what, I can work out with some of you guys to arrange things :)

    Will request my vacation time off from work today :)

    Southwest is awesome because they don't charge for the first check in bag :) So my golf clubs can fly free with me!! Now, they just need to take care of them and make sure they make it to my destination with me, that's another story
