Hotel Information - Stay to Play Event - Columbus Day Duals  October 12-14, 2018

The Columbus Day Duals has partnered with Pse Event Housing to provide attendees/groups with the best available hotel rates and a smooth booking experience. 

Our event is a “Stay to Play” event: A good working relationship with hotels is critical for the long-term success of our event. For this reason, teams or attendees who are traveling from out of town are required to book their rooms through our Official Travel Partner, Pse Event Housing, to ensure that our room blocks are utilized. In short, since the hotels are holding rooms for our event, we must use these rooms.

The best hotels will book up quickly so please book well in advance.
