Vegas to host Game Improvement Summit


Las Vegas, NV— The 2018 Game Improvement Summit (GIS), a one-of-a-kind golf teaching seminar will bring together nationally-ranked instructors with the specific purpose of teaching average weekend golfers on how to shave strokes off their game and increase overall performance and enjoyment in the sport.  This inaugural teaching summit is set for April 20-22, 2018 at Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall (Las Vegas, NV) and Stallion Mountain Golf Club (Las Vegas, NV). Cost for the 2-day Summit, including two-nights lodging at Sam’s Town Hotel, is only $895. 

Attendees will gain knowledge from Top-10, Top-50 and Top-100 Teachers. Summit speakers include nationally-recognized Mike Bender (St. Mary, FL), Tiffany Faucette (Ashburn, VA), Mike Malaska (Superstition, AZ), Brady Riggs (Van Nuys, CA), Dr. Robert Winters (Orlando, FL) and Pam Wright (Scottsdale, AZ). 

Noted Summit presenters (who’ve worked with tour players as well as novice golfers) will focus on various components of the sport— from pre-game regimen to course management strategies—honing ways to improve mindset coupled with practical tips when faced with troubled shots. 

The Summit kicks off on Friday evening with a welcome reception for both attendees and presenters. Saturday commences with breakfast and break-out sessions with top golf instructors, plus lunch and optional golf activities in the afternoon. Sunday begins with breakfast followed by more break-out sessions with highly-credentialed instructors. The weekend Summit will wrap up with an informative closing session packed with plenty of take-aways for participants.

“Our goal is to have players advance in the sport and enjoy the game more, no matter what their current performance level may be,” said Summit Co-Founder Dennis Silvers, a nationally-syndicated golf talk show host. “It’s through our comprehensive two-day symposium led by seasoned instructors that a novice or mid-level golfer will have a chance to noticeably improve their game. I am pleased to share that the Summit will also include methodologies utilized by tour players.”

If desired, on Saturday afternoon attendees will have an opportunity to “add on” special clinics highlighting various aspects of the game and/or a 9-hole playing lesson with a selected instructor.

In addition to the comprehensive learning opportunities, the Summit registration packet includes two-nights hotel accommodations. According to Summit Co-Founder Debbie Waitkus, CEO of Golf for Cause, the event will also include a charitable component benefiting the Las Vegas Relief Fund.
