The Kia Classic is back for the seventh year in a row and Harrah’s Resort SoCal is proud to be return as a second-time sponsor. The women of the LPGA are ready to tee up for an exciting weekend of long drives, stunning landscapes and a hearty dose of competition.
Now if you’re not a golf fan you may be thinking to yourself, “Since when is golf exciting?” If you have never been to a golf tournament, we believe that you should reconsider that statement. To help we have come up with a list of the top five reasons to attend the Kia Classic in Carlsbad, California. Even if you’re not a true golf fan, who knows, you just might leave as one.
Top 5 Reasons to Attend the Kia Classic (Even If You’re Not a Golf Fan):
1. It’s beautiful:
As it was last year, the Kia Classic is hosted at the Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, California. This jaw-dropping golf course has received numerous awards for its striking beauty. It was named one of the best golf resorts in America by both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine and the readers of Condé Nast Traveler voted Aviara the number one golf resort in San Diego. Overlooking the Batiquitos Lagoon ecological reserve, this picturesque course spans 7,000 yards and is filled with vibrant wildflowers, serene water features and a not-so-distant ocean view. A walk around the grounds is not a bad way to spend a day, especially with the weather expected to be a perfect 70 degrees and filled with sunshine.
2. We’ll be there:
And we’ll be bringing the fun to two different locations. The first is the Harrah’s Resort SoCal Lounge. This VIP hospitality suite requires the purchase of an upgraded ticket, but with complimentary food, drinks (including a full service bar), private restrooms and a patio that overlooks the 18th green, it is worth every penny! If you’re not interested in spending the extra dough, join us at our booth in Spectator Village located right in front of the Clubhouse for giveaways, a photo booth and even a live roulette game.This area is free, open to all general admission ticket holders and will be packed wall to wall with FUNNER!
3. Military members and their family are FREE:
You read that right friends, all week long active military members can bring their valid military ID and receive free daily general admission for themselves and their family.
4. There’s a lot of money on the line:
Kia Classic is a major event on the LPGA tour, which means a prize pool that fits to match. With 144 women competing for a purse totalling $1.7 million dollars these women are coming with one goal—to win. If there was ever a perfect time to start taking an interest in women’s golf, it’s right now.
5. Did we mention it’s beautiful?
If you’re looking to step off the course for a while, the Park Hyatt Aviara is exactly the place to put your feet up. Whether or not you choose to stay at this AAA Five Diamond rated resort, you can still enjoy the beautiful views, a stroll through their many hotel shops and one (or all) of their four magnificent restaurants. With choices like fine italian, high quality steak house or a modern bistro, you are sure to find something to sink your teeth into. There is hardly a nook or cranny that does not scream elegance.
