Lemonhaze Executive Golf Classics Offer an Elite Experience

The Lemonhaze Executive Golf Invitational that happened right before MJBizCon last November is not about golf. I mean, it’s golf — and exquisite golf at that, but to describe it as a golf tournament does not do it justice. It is an elite, supreme networking event. And oh, by the way, there was some once-in-a-lifetime golf that also took place at Cascata Golf Club that day.

It all started at about 8 a.m. when golfers piled into long, black, bus-style limos at the ARIA and other resorts. Attendees were greeted by friendly faces and sponsors offering beverages, including champagne infused with terpenes.

The quick ride to Cascata, just outside Sin City, began and so did the networking. Seriously, cards and ideas were exchanged before anyone hit the links and all the people were heavy hitters in the cannabis space. 

Once everyone arrived, there was a hot breakfast and full array of beverages served up, along with a chance to mingle with sponsors and other golfers before tee-off. There were celebrities mixed in with the executives, along with a very eager and helpful staff at the course. Speaking of the course … WOW.

The course at Cascata cost about $70 million and it looks like it. When it opened in 2000, it was an exclusive playground for the casino whales 22 miles away, but it is now open to the public. It’s ranked in the top 50 of all public courses.

The views were amazing, and as if on cue, at the first hole we were greeted by bighorn sheep meandering around the flag.

Breathtaking views, manicured courses, and wildlife made for the type of environment where you only could see your hole and the rest of the course, and the world just disappeared while you played.

Each hole offered an opportunity to chat with sponsors, grab samples, and network with other golfers. The pace of play was solid for a best-ball tournament and they provided fresh food at the ninth hole — including a “surf and turf” steak sandwich and lobster roll.

You don’t really want for anything before, during, or after the event, and it was the perfect way to ease into a busy week during MJBizCon

Sponsors were thoughtfully selected to complement certain elements of the event and when it was all said and done, Brian Yauger, CEO of Lemonhaze, cornered the market on executive networking and fun — all rolled into one. 

If you are looking for an experience of a lifetime, first-class hospitality, and world-class golf with the cannabis industry’s biggest names — you can’t do better than Lemonhaze. Cannabis & Tech Today gives it five stars and can’t wait for next year!
