Sponsored by Cordillera.

There will be plenty of time for practice swings in the early season. Join us for our second annual Golf Tournament when your game is seasoned, smooth and ready to be put on display on the gorgeous 18 holes of the Cordillera Mountain Course. The event benefits the Vail Symposium.

Put together your team of four for a shotgun-start golf tournament followed by appetizers, drinks and a lecture from the former president of NBC Sports, Mr. Ken Schanzer. Mr. Schanzer will talk about how television changed the game and detail why sports are so willing to alter their format and timing to accommodate for a larger television audience. He'll also discuss how television stations will chase after sporting programs such as Wimbledon as well as the PGA Tour. Tickets to the lecture can be purchased separately.

Last year the Golf Tournament hosted 50+ golfers and raised over $14,000. As the Symposium expands with greater programs and larger audiences, this year's tournament will serve to bring the best speakers on the most interesting topics right to Vail.

Ken SchanzerAbout Ken Schanzer

Ken Schanzer served as the President of NBC Sports from June 1998 until September of 2011. He also served as the Chief Operating Officer of NBC Sports and was responsible for supervising all operations of the division. Schanzer played a key role in negotiating NBC's six-year agreement with the NFL to become the network home of premier prime-time television package "Sunday Night Football" beginning in 2006. He also was responsible for NBC's landmark agreement for exclusive network telecast rights for the University of Notre Dame's home football games.
