English Turn Country Club New Orleans
Jack Nicklaus created eighteen unique, championship holes surrounded by an expansive waterway. At English Turn each hole is different. There were no architectural cookie cutters here, and no holes designed merely to divide residential areas. Each English Turn hole challenges you with its own personality. The greens are notoriously undulating, challenging yet fair for the club member and pros alike. The famed 18th of English Turn was consistently rated one of the most challenging on the PGA Tour. Norman. Faldo. Love. Couples. They’ve all taken a swing at English Turn’s 7,078 – yard track and come away with a bit more respect for the award-winning Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole layout.
Buses depart the Hilton Riverside at 6:30am. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided at the course. Club rentals are $50. If you need to reserve clubs, please specify mens / ladies, left or right handed in an e-mail to Van Voss: firstname.lastname@example.org.

ETA / DISCOVER PARTY
Wednesday, May 1 | 6:00pm – 8:30pm
503 Bourbon Street
New Orleans, LA 70130
Book your dinner reservations after 8:30 pm and wind down your Wednesday with a drink and conversation with some new acquaintances and old friends. Head straight to Bourbon Street after the conference to join this year’s party sponsored once again by Discover.
Grab your invitation and orange beads at the Discover booth #120 and hop on the first bus outside of the conference at 6:00 pm. Or if you are ready for some fresh air, it is only a 1.5 mile walk to the Bourbon Vieux, located at 503 Bourbon Street. Bourbon Vieux boasts the largest covered balcony on Bourbon Street, where you can appreciate the spirit of the French Quarter in historic New Orleans. We will have plenty of great New Orleans food and drinks starting on the first floor restaurant while the band will be playing upstairs.
Head outside on the balcony and greet the rest of the attendees from ETA as they arrive. But this party will only last from 6:00– 8:30 pm so don’t miss it!
Bus departures will run continuously until 7:30 pm and a walking map will also be available. Keep a lookout as ETA and Discover unveil more details about the “best place to be and be seen” event during ETA.
