The tournament will provide lodging for the blind and visually impaired golfers and their coaches for the nights of Tuesday – Thursday, 9 - 11 April.  If you plan to come earlier or stay later, you will be responsible for the extra nights.  When I receive your registration, I will reserve your room.  Be sure to let me know if you want additional nights.

Sincerely,
