Build-a-Boat Regatta

Our interactive, fun Build-a-Boat & Hope-It-Floats Regatta will inspire team building and laughter in a dynamic setting. Craft a “floating device” entirely of cardboard and duct tape (extra points if it actually resembles a boat!), then head off to the Superpool to test your innovation in a fun-filled regatta (prizes optional).

It’s easy for your event to include great golf, thanks to our two Arnold Palmer signature courses, as well as professional instruction from The Saddlebrook Golf Academy. Whether your group consists of 20 players or 200, our professional golf staff can coordinate fun and memorable tournaments, clinics and video analysis at the Training Center & Range, and customized programs, depending on your group’s level of play or interest in the game.
