WELCOME to the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 10th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational. This year, the tournament has a new home, the spectacular ARIA Resort & Casino, and will be played at Shadow Creek, one of my favorite golf courses. I am especially honored that this tournament marks the first time that the renowned Shadow Creek will be open to the public. As always, an amazing line-up of celebrities from the worlds of sports and entertainment will join me for fierce competition on the golf course and to participate in fun events - all in the name of charity. Since the tournament’s inception, I am proud to say we have raised over $5 million for a variety of deserving causes. This year, MJCI will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the James R. Jordan Foundation, Cats Care and the Nevada Cancer Institute. In addition, each participating celebrity will compete for a $200,000 purse to be donated to his or her charity of choice. I extend my sincere thanks to all of the celebrities for their continued support and participation, to our generous sponsors and supporters, to our hardworking staff and dedicated volunteers and the many others who contributed to making this year’s Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational a reality.

HOMECOMING

The old cliché “you can’t go home again” is not always true. It certainly isn’t the case when it comes to NBA legend Michael Jordan and his home state of North Carolina. Jordan, a native of Wilmington, rose to stardom at the University of North Carolina, leading his team to an NCAA championship with a dramatic gameAfter earning the first of his two Olympic Gold Medals in 1984, Jordan rose to iconic status and worldwide fame as a six-time NBA Champion and a five-time league MVP as a member of the Chicago Bulls.

VIVA ELVIS The 75 artists comprised of dancers, musicians, singers, acrobats, lasso

artists and an actor, seamlessly channel an exhilarating and youthful tribute to Elvis’ life through imaginative and inspired costumes, unique dance numbers, thrilling acrobatics, one of a kind sets and heart-pumping live music.

Created in the image of The King of Rock ’n’ Roll – powerful, sexy,

whimsical, truly unique and larger than life – the show highlights an American icon who transformed popular music and whose image has come to define popular culture.

Viva ELVIS focuses on the essential humanity of the one superstar whose

name will forever be linked with the history of Las Vegas: Elvis Presley.

Significant moments in his life – intimate, playful and grandiose – blend with timeless songs that remain as relevant today as when they first hit the top of the charts.

“On a creative level, it was extremely stimulating to draw our inspiration

from this musical icon,” said Guy Laliberté, Founder of Cirque du Soleil. “Viva ELVIS showcases the raw energy and pure talent of Elvis and highlights the exhilaration and beauty of his music on a grand scale.” In paying homage to the music of Elvis, Cirque du Soleil set out to present the songs of the King of Rock ’n’ Roll in a contemporary form that evokes the spirit of Elvis in every way. “What would the songs of Elvis be like if he were doing them for the first time today?” asks Musical Director and Arranger Erich Van Tourneau. “With all humility, I set out to evoke the soul and the spirit of Elvis Presley, while building a bridge between his music and future generations of fans.” The styles of Viva ELVIS move from Delta blues to rockabilly, soul to gospel, through Dixie and Southern folk music. Some of the songs even evoke garage

VIVA ELVIS rock and punk, steeped in waves of hip-hop and urban music. But one thing is certain and remains consistent: the sound of Viva ELVIS is pure rock.

“Elvis has always been in the forefront of new, contemporary

entertainment and technology,” said Priscilla Presley. “I believe Viva ELVIS

continues this and reaches out and expands his legacy in a new, creative and

26|

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

exciting way.”

Thirty of Elvis’ songs are used in the production, with remixes designed to

accentuate and boost the emotional charge of his performances. Elvis’ voice is the only male singing voice in Viva ELVIS, joined occasionally by female singers and an energetic live band that has guests dancing in their seats. For the first time in over 30 years, Elvis fans and music-lovers alike are able to hear

his voice in its true and fantastic form – live and on stage in Las Vegas, presented exclusively at ARIA Resort & Casino.

Viva ELVIS performs two shows nightly at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday through

Saturday (dark Sunday and Monday). Ticket prices range from $69 - $175 and can be purchased via phone by calling (877) 253-5847 or (702) 531-2031; online by visiting www.cirquedusoleil.com/vivaelvis; or in person at the Elvis Theater box office located on the promenade level at ARIA Resort & Casino.

Par-4

From an elevated tee, this aesthetically pleasing hole has a large, visible bunker on the left side with a stream running the length of the hole. The approach requires an accurate mid-range to short shot into a receptive green guarded by a bunker on the right side and water on the left.

2 Par-4

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

This tee shot requires accuracy “down the middle.” The beautifully groomed fairway is guarded by large trees on the right side and an unrewarding swale to the left. As players approach the green, there is a large drop-off that is heavily bunkered.

Par-4

A long tee shot is necessary between a large calming pond and bunker on the left and trees on the right. This is followed by an equally long, uphill second shot into a bunkerless green. An error made over the green will leave a very difficult chip.

Par-5

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

This signature par-5 requires a long, accurate drive favoring the right-center of the fairway. A large scenic pond runs down the left side with deep bunkers and a weeping willow hugging the corner. Fairway shots should remain right-center as the hole narrows toward the small, receptive green.

A gorgeous valley of pine trees will grab any golf shot not well-struck and left short of the green. This forest makes No. 5 one of the most visually intimidating holes on the course.

6 Par-4

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

One of the most difficult par-4s on the course, No. 6 is a slight dogleg right. The width of the fairway is narrow with a bunker on the right side and the approach shot will leave a long iron to a green protected by deep bunkers on the right. This green is one of the largest on the course, slopes from back to front and left to right, and a true test from tee to green.

Par-5

A difficult, but striking three-shot hole starts with a nice, wide fairway. The second shot should be carefully placed between multiple bunkers. The green can be approached on the ground or in the air if the pin is on the right side, but if it’s on the left a high-lofted shot is required.

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

The second of Shadow Creek’s par-3s sits alone in a breathtaking valley. The hole plays a little shorter than normal because it is downhill; however, the bunker short left of the green should be avoided if possible.

Par-4

A drive avoiding a creek on the left and in between fairway bunkers is a must on this visually stunning hole. The closely mowed fringe on the right-hand side will kick a ball onto the green. Although the back-left pin affords a view of the stone bridge, it might be the toughest pin on the course.

SHADOW CREEK

10 Par-4

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

One of the prettiest holes on the course, No. 10 is a medium length, dogleg right par-4 around a large fairway bunker. A tee shot steered too far from the bunker will go through the fairway into an elegant family of pine trees. The amphitheater green, dominated by a large pine tree short and right, can be attacked by running a shot up the left side or a lofted shot over the greenside bunker.

Par-4

This is the shortest par-4 on the course and requires a lot of thought. A pin on the left side of the green can be approached aggressively; however, any pin on the narrow, right side of the green is best attacked with a full wedge second shot. Players must avoid the treacherous bunker at all costs.

SHADOW CREEK

12 Par-4

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

This medium length, uphill par-4 is the last good opportunity for a birdie prior to the difficult stretch of the final six holes. After a well-placed drive, a short iron is called upon to a large uphill green that slopes severely back to front. Any approach shot past the pin will result in a tough two-putt.

Par-3

The picturesque tee shot must be played to a long, undulating and narrow green. The green is guarded by a bunker on the front, right side and a pond that is situated 30 feet below the putting surface that will catch any errant tee shot to the right.

SHADOW CREEK

14 Par-4

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

The difficult downhill 14th hole forces a precise tee shot favoring the left side of the fairway. From there, a large pine tree guards the left side of the green and an exquisite lake guards the right. Missing this green will result in a difficult up-and-down.

Par-4

A set of deep bunkers line the right side of the fairway and a meandering stream runs down the left side – both of which must be avoided on the tee shot. With a solid drive, a mid-to-long iron awaits the approach shot to a deceptively sloped green.

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

This massive par-5 can seldom be reached in two. Bunkers guard the right side of the fairway and a large grove of pine trees guard the left. After a precise lay up, the approach shot must find the putting surface or players will be left with a very difficult recovery.

Par-3

The small green is framed beautifully with a pond guarding the front of the green and an enchanting waterfall protecting the back left portion of the green. The shortest of Shadow Creek’s par-3s can be very challenging depending on the direction of the wind. There simply is no room for error.

MICHAEL JORDAN CELEBRITY INVITATIONAL

After a well-placed tee shot over water, a decision must be made to either go for the green in two or lay up short of the pond on this spectacular finishing hole. If the decision is to play it safe and lay up, a challenging third shot over the lake remains to the three-tiered green.
