Behind the Scenes at Michael Jordan's Celebrity Golf Tournament

LAS VEGAS (TheStreet) -- The biggest names in the worlds of sports and entertainment gathered for four days of competitive golf and exclusive events March 29-April 1 when ARIA Resort & Casino (MGM) at CityCenter hosted the 11th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational. The invitational returned to the exclusive Shadow Creek Golf Course, which opened to spectators for only the second time in its history.

Normally reserved solely for guests of MGM Resorts International, the experience includes a limousine that transports you to and from the Tom Fazio-designed course and upon arrival, your personal caddie greets and guides you through a golfing experience you will never forget.

Proceeds from the charitable tournament benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Univerity of California-San Diego Nevada Cancer Institute, James R. Jordan Foundation, Opportunity Village and Cats Care, the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats charity arm. Since its inception, MJCI has raised more than $6 million for charity. TravelsinTastebrings you the scoop in what went down during the four day event.

Ashton Kutcher and Michael Jordan took to the links recently during Jordan's celebrity golf invitational at the exclusive Shadow Creek Golf Course.

The first round commenced March 29 with groups comprised of one celebrity with four amateur golfers. Throughout the tournament, The Spa & Salon at ARIA sent its most skilled barbers down to the course to provide golfers with hot shaves and trims in the men's locker room. At the end of the first day participants celebrated with a private party at LIQUID Pool Lounge, the adults-only outdoor playground at ARIA that recently opened for the summer season, hosted by Jordan Brand.

Throughout the tournament M life VIPs, MGM Resorts unique rewards program that offers unparalleled access to the best of Vegas, were treated to the best view of the course in a luxurious hospitality tent overlooking the green on the 18th hole.

The VIP second level served up refreshing specialty cocktails featuring Ciroc vodka, including The Diddy - an homage to Ciroc's founder - and a delicious blend of vodka and lemonade, perfect for the day. Additionally, food was plentiful - including a breakfast ranging from light fruit displays of spring fresh sliced melons, berries, varietal grapes with lavender honey sauce; to hot and savory scrambled eggs, applewood smoked bacon, chicken sausage and sliced red bliss julienne onions with herbs. Highlights from the lunch menu include sliced heirloom tomato and mozzarella bocconcini with balsamic glaze, herb-crusted beef tenderloin with watercress and horseradish cream, and wild mushroom roasted chicken with onion cream sauce. VIPs were kept satisfied with crudités and tea sandwiches throughout the afternoons.
