Vacations are no longer just about rest and relaxation. If you’ve caught the travel bug, you are among a growing group of travelers who want to add exciting excursions and experiences to their vacations.

Tripadvisor found that one of the top travel trends was experiential travel. A majority of travelers indicated that it was important for them to find new travel experiences. American Express also identified experiential travel as a hot topic and reported an uptick in travel booking for specific events and experiences.

The Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions is one experience travelers can add to their must-try list. This unique event kicks off the LPGA season and brings together the world’s top professional women golfers and beloved sports and entertainment celebrities on the fairway of Lake Nona Golf & Country Club in Orlando.

To build excitement for the 2023 Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, HGV kicked off the first-ever Viva! Las Vegas Pro-Am tournament.  

Viva! Las Vegas was held at Bali Hai Golf Club at the heart of the fabulous Las Vegas Strip September 1920. Blair O’Neal, model and TV personality, hosted the event. 

At Viva! Las Vegas, Hilton Grand Vacations Owners enjoyed a packed two days, including a pro-am tournament and two private concerts* exclusively tailored to Members.

“We’ve had a great experience at Viva! Las Vegas,” said Kelly H., a long-time Member. “My husband Greg golfed, and I enjoyed brunch, tacos and margaritas. Plus, it’s all in Vegas — so you can’t go wrong.”

Greg added, “We’ve been Members forever. We can’t wait to do more with Hilton Grand Vacations Ultimate Access.”

The fun continued into the evening, with private concerts from Michael Ray and Joey Fatone (featuring surprise guest performers).

Mary D. is one Owner who attended Viva! Las Vegas. “I went into it with no idea how exciting it would be,” she admitted. “I’ve had so much fun and was treated like royalty.” Mary originally attended Viva! Las Vegas for Joey Fatone, previously a member of multi-platinum boyband *NYSNC and now an actor, host, Broadway star, voiceover artist, dancer and media personality. “My daughter got me hooked on *NSYNC, and I’ve been a huge fan of Joey Fatone ever since. I was able to get a few selfies with him,” she said. “He’s very personable. I’ve loved being here.”

Country music fans likely recognized Michael Ray on the fairway and the stage as the award-winning singer-songwriter who played and performed at Viva! Las Vegas.

Along with LPGA Tour winners, celebrities like NFL Hall of Famer Marcus Allen, “Ant-Man" actor Michael Peña and more will compete for the iconic trophy.
