General Instructions

Here are some important reminders and notifications for you to keep in mind as we get closer to the conference:

    • A laptop or tablet device. This is not required but will allow you to view course material during the session and complete CME requirements as you go,
    • Make sure to bring charging cables and plugs to have your device fully charged each day, there will be a limited number of power strips available for attendees to charge between sessions.
    • No hard copies of the course handouts or materials will be provided, but you will be able to access them through the event web app (more info to come)
    • Don’t forget to pack a sweater, the conference rooms may be chilly!
  • This is a live, in-person course. We will NOT be streaming any portion of the activity, but we will be recording the lectures. All registrants will have access to the lecture recordings in April once they have been processed by our editing department,
  • The Break-out sessions will not be recorded. Due to the hands-on nature of most of our break-out sessions, in-person attendance is required. The break-out sessions begin after lunch, at 1:00 pm, on Friday and Saturday, March 24 and 25. There are no break-out sessions scheduled for Sunday.

Conference attendees will receive a 15% discount, make sure to notify the vale attendant that you are there for the Nicklaus PPGC Course to receive the discounted rate. To valet, turn right onto Palermo from Ponce De Leon, and veer a quick right onto Coconut Grove Drive. Pass the visitor center and the hotel/valet will be on the right-hand side.
