‘His Airness’ Hits the Links

Michael Jordan is putting his love of golf to good use, bringing his celebrity invitational to Las Vegas for the first time. This is the 10th year of the event, which has raised more than $5 million for charity.

The four-day tournament, set for March 31 through April 3, will be held at the exclusive Shadow Creek Golf Course, which will be open to the public for the first time.

“I’ve played Shadow Creek more than 100 times,” Jordan tells Vegas Seven. (He boasts a 6 handicap.) “I absolutely loved it the first time I played it, and it’s still one of my favorite courses.”

The first two rounds of the tournament will pair one celebrity with four amateur participants, while the final two rounds will include only the competing celebrities. Among the stars scheduled to participate are Larry David, Spike Lee, Don Cheadle and a number of sports personalities.

Tickets for the event range from $25 for general admission the first two days of the tournament to $300 for a weeklong VIP pass, and can be purchased at Aria’s Viva Elvis box office or online at AriaLasVegas.com or MJCIgolf.com.k
