Kaluhyat Golf Course at Turning Stone Resort Verona, NY


“Snow season brings the opportunity for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, and nearby lakes offer a pleasing oppor- tunity for additional recreational activi- ties,” notes Emery.


He adds that Turning Stone is positioned as a natural choice for all event sizes and offers amenities to meet any organiza- tion’s objectives, too. “Consisting of over 100,000 square feet of meeting space with capacities from 10 to 2,000 people, our meeting space coupled with 709 guest rooms and suites solidifies us as a true meetings destination. Our central loca- tion allows all market segments easy access from the Northeast and Mid- Atlantic corridors.”


“Understanding that corporate meetings have shifted focus away from utilizing many of the traditional amenities that destinations offer, Turning Stone has applied a different approach,” observes Emery. “We showcase our offerings while building upon the content of the event. This approach assists in meeting objec- tives while utilizing team building and networking events that provide the basis for building relationships. Examples of

this include golf clinics, receptions cou- pled with golf, and spa wellness breaks.”


Located along Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Harbourtowne Golf Resort


and


Conference Center is another popular destination that has much to offer, includ- ing many recreational opportunities such as its Pete Dye-designed 18-hole golf course.


The resort’s PGA golf pro, John Mlynarski, can coordinate shotgun starts, four-man scrambles, and unique golf events requested by clients. In addition, Cheryl Alfes, hotel manager for Harbourtowne, notes that “John can arrange lessons or even fit you with a new set of clubs.”


Other on site activities at the resort include: tennis courts, an oversized swim- ming pool, volleyball, bikes, croquet, bad- minton, horseshoes and basketball.


“We have access to kayak and canoe rentals for groups who would like to expe- rience water activities,”


says Alfes.


Although they no longer host a spa on property, Harbourtowne does work with a private vendor that can arrange for an


appointment-only massage in the guest’s room or private balcony.


Habourtowne also hosts many meetings and events while offering customized packages that are based on the require- ments of their clients, including extensive team building programs that are ideal for corporate outings.


“We offer unique team building opportu- nities for all price points,” says Alfes. “We have a list of team building vendors who can offer everything from cardboard boat building and racing to kayaking to a local island to group hypnosis. And all of the vendors we work with allow the client to include their services on our direct mas- ter account so they don’t have to pay for such services upfront.


It’s just another service that our clients really value.”


As Alfes notes, all groups are given an on site coordinator who works with them to make sure their event runs smoothly.


“As a privately owned hotel and confer- ence center, we have the ability to cus- tomize everything from menus to meeting room setup, team building and off-site
