The Hacienda Hotel is being sold to Holiday Inn and they are converting the units to high end suites and may not be available for overnight stays.  Holiday Inn is the most reasonable this year.  You are invited to join the group for Dinner on Saturday Night after the Golf Scramble even if you don’t play golf at Eagle Ridge Golf Club.
