Two additional Champions will be named in the coming weeks.

Only 24 exclusive spots are available for guests who will pay $1,750 to bask in the sun and share the limelight on the courts playing with the celebrity golfers. The weekend will kick off on Friday evening with a cocktail party exclusively for the Grand Slam Champions, player-guests, partners and sponsors.
