Golf Tournament

The East Coast Symposium is hosting a golf tournament sponsored by Dreamscape Marketing on November 2, the day before the full conference begins.

This is the only official golf outing at the East Coast Symposium. Any other golf-related activities are not coordinated with, or endorsed by, or part of, the conference.


TPC Sawgrass (Dye’s Valley Course)
