Don't Miss the First-Ever Golf Digest Think Young Play Hard Invitational from April 16 - April 19, 2015.

The opportunity to hang with well-known DJs and world-famous celebrities and attend private, premium open bar parties does not typically present itself at your average golf tournament.

Walters Golf invites avid players and the young at heart to experience the first-ever Golf Digest Think Young Play Hard Invitational from April 16 through April 19, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The inaugural tournament will feature two competitive rounds at Walters Golf’s Bali Hai and Royal Links Golf Clubs, a four day/three night stay at The Mirage, exclusive parties and events at notable venues on the Strip, and numerous perks reserved only for players.

Consistently rated among Las Vegas’ best courses, both Bali Hai Golf Club and Royal Links Golf Club will serve as the backdrop for the two-person best ball tournament play. At Royal Links Golf Club, players can expect a challenging layout that is unmistakably reminiscent of the British Open rotation’s most legendary holes. And, a far cry from the British flair of Royal Links, Bali Hai Golf Club offers a South Pacific-inspired landscape that makes for low scores when played wisely. As players contend for the maiden trophy on Friday and Saturday, they’ll also be treated to pre- and post-round game-improvement clinics, tour-level equipment fitting and long-drive exhibitions from fellow title sponsor Callaway Golf.

While golf may be the focus of the event, players are also encouraged to indulge their youthful, spirited side off the course at The Mirage. The weekend exudes Las Vegas-style vibes with private parties at The Mirage's most daring venues, including its Bare Pool Lounge and world-famous Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. “We’re essentially condensing the ultimate Las Vegas experience into one weekend,” said Josh Hill, Vice President of Marketing at Walters Golf. “The opportunity to hang with well-known DJs and world-famous celebrities and attend private, premium open bar parties does not typically present itself at your average golf tournament. And by typically, I mean never.”

Partying aside, there are perks for the thrill-seeking type, too. Las Vegas’ Pole Position Raceway is set to close its doors for a special evening reserved exclusively for Think Young Play Hard Invitational guests, featuring a playoff-style competition on go-karts equipped to reach speeds of 45 MPH. "Pole Position Raceway is proud to be a part of this fast and furious weekend," said Brad Mark, COO at Pole Position Raceway. "We heard the best "drivers" were coming to Vegas so now we want to see if that "driving" skill will be displayed at some of the finest golf courses in the world along with the fastest go-kart track in America." The Mirage’s expansive casino will swap its usual table-gaming felts for those that are TYPHI-branded during the weekend, which also includes a players-only casino night after the first day of competition. Adventure lovers will relish the overhead excitement provided by Maverick Helicopters, as well as the opportunity to win one of 15 cameras from event sponsor GoPro.

With R&B vocal group Boyz II Men rumored to tee it up, the 144-person event is expected to sell out well before its April 16, 2015 debut – and currently only has 30 spots still available. The $1,499 per person price includes an exclusive 30% discount on all on-site shows at The Mirage in addition to numerous other tournament and event partner offerings.
