Annual UTA John Gresley Golf Tournament

6:45 am- 3:00 pm

Join your UTA friends at the annual golf tournament. The North/South Course at the Villas of Grand Cypress Orlando offers a variety of mental and physical challenges that test accuracy rather than strength and distance. The North/South Course is marked by sharply ledged fairways, tall shaggy mounds, and plateau greens perched above water or sand. It is a demanding, target-style test.
The North/South offers a variety of tee boxes making the course enjoyable for top-level golfers and beginners as well.
