annikaHighlands, North Carolina’s European-style luxury resort, Old Edwards Inn & Spa, will be hosting an ANNIKA Academy Destination Golf Experience May 25-28 with Hall of Fame golfer Annika Sorenstam and her hand picked instruction team. Nestled in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains and ranked Trip Advisor’s No. 5 U.S. Hotel in 2015, Old Edwards, an Historic Hotel of America, is an ideal spot to enjoy spectacular views while learning Annika’s “Winning Approach.”

The Tom Jackson designed golf course is an architectural marvel that traverses the Eastern Continental Divide. Tom used the natural topography of a mountain plateau, providing a captivating 18 hole wonder with an intriguing dual personality. The front side relaxes through a serene mountain valley of greenery and meandering streams. As you approach the turn, a 250 foot ascent delivers you to the 10th tee, giving you the feeling of being on top of the world. The next three holes take you on one of the highest ridges of golf on the east coast. Your final descent takes you back towards the clubhouse with a sheer granite cliff on the right side of #18. Players of all levels will experience perfect course conditions, warm hospitality and superb mountain golf.

The Destination Golf Experience is limited to no more than 10 guests to promote an environment best-suited to learning.
The Program includes:

  • A private dinner with Annika and the Academy team. A private clinic with Annika. Photographs and autographs with Annika.
  • Three days of golf and fitness instruction. Fitness and nutritional overview with Kai Fusser with a copy of her book “Weight Training for Golf”.
  • Video swing analysis. 27 holes with greens and cart fees included with course management during golf.
  • Full service breakfast and lunch daily. Gift package.

Annika will be joined by her sister Charlotta Sorenstam, LPGA winner and NCAA Champion; Henri Reis, Annika’s only swing coach since she was 10 years old: and Kai Fusser, Annika’s personal trainer for more than a decade.

“We’re very excited to bring our successful Destination Golf Experience platform to Old Edwards,” says Annika, winner of 89
professional events worldwide and 10 majors. “My team and I really enjoy going on the road to beautiful places to share our passion and proven techniques with our guests.”
