Departure


Pete Dye Golf Course

The MCAA is looking to organize an optional golf excursion to the Pete Dye Course on Sunday one day before the official program of the MCAA begins. The fee for the course is $380.00, you should also secure rentals in advance.

The Pete Dye Course has gained national acclaim for its 40-mile panoramic views of the southern Indiana countryside, three man-made lakes, “volcano” bunkers and a variety of elevation changes. A robust 8,100 yards from the professional tees punctuate Dye’s signature sting from vista to vista. The course is one of the best in the country and is world renowned among the golf community.

Hands-on Speed Dating Venue

This year we have a twist to our Speed Dating program. In years past, participants have gone to 12 separate suites in small groups to hear 20 minute B2B educational in nature, presentations about some of the latest developments in the industry. We have had requests from past attendees to offer a hands-on speed dating event. This year we are offering this for the first time.

We will be in a shared space in what was formerly an indoor tennis courts at the French Lick Resort and now is used as a field house type venue. We will offer 20 - 15 minute B2B programs in the space and offer breakfast and lunch in the space. As in past years, attendees will be given a card to have stamped at each meeting and then submit their card. Another twist this year will be in the prizes. Everyone who completes the circuit will be awarded a cash prize. Their cards will entered in a drawing for a grand prize.

In addition to our Speed Dating morning, we will also offer a preview night and host our Opening Reception and dinner adjacent to the Speed Dating venue and will make our way to the venue for a sneak peak.

The Donald Ross Course - MAC PEC Golf Outing

This classic course designed by iconic architect Donald Ross underwent a $5 million restoration in 2007. When the project was completed, 80 of Ross’ trademark bunkers with flat bottoms and deep, gnarly faces were once again in place along with expanded, square or rectangular shaped greens that severely undulate.

Thirty-five of these bunkers are original to the course that Ross constructed in 1917. The course is a par 70 and plays to 7,000 yards. The Donald Ross course has been rated the No. 2 public course in Indiana by GolfWeek every year since 2011. The course will play host to the MCAA’s political education fund outing this year.


The Pete Dye Pavillion - Closing Banquet

This venue is the epitome of the “bringing the outdoors in” decorating philosophy. Part park shelter house and part log cabin, the atmosphere takes your event to new heights – literally. Located at The Pete Dye Course at French Lick , this space’s golf course setting and magnificent hilltop views are icing on the cake.

The MCAA will have our Closing Banquet at this venue on Wednesday evening. In addition to the wonderful atmosphere, we will be hosting a South 40 Cornhole tournament. Sign-up and parings for the outing will be done earlier in the week.
