During Spectrum, we&rsquo;ll be taking advantage of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Harbor Shores, home to the 2016 Senior PGA tournament, for the &#39;attendee pre-conference fun event,&#39; and the abundance of local wineries and chocolatiers for our Monday afternoon guest event.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Spectrum, B&amp;L&#39;s customer conference for Odyssey software users, starts with an optional afternoon golf outing and an evening customer welcome event on Sunday, September 18, followed by two full days of classroom education sessions. Classroom sessions typically include numerous mini-class options, several sets of panel discussions, customer case studies, and a hands-on shop experience room.
