Final Call: Spring Men’s Retreat at the Links of Utopia—March 29-31


The wildflowers have started their show in Utopia. The sun is shining. The springs are running again filling the crystal clear Sabinal River to the brim. What a time to be in Utopia. Spring is in the air. Come join us on our annual retreat to this tiny but eternally significant spot in the world… an epicenter of a movement of God. Come walk into the book and movie where you will enter the world of which I wrote these words over 10 years ago:

“On day six, I drove down the one-lane entrance to the Links that had become so familiar this life-altering week. It was a “windows down” sort of road. You wanted to experience it, not just drive it. Unlike the entrances to the modern-day master-planned communities and country clubs, this stretch of road was flanked by the authenticity of life. Nothing was imported. Without the help of a gardener, native wildflowers bloomed in concert with the natural grasses and vines. Sensing their short-lived splendor, wildflowers sprang to life with a flurry and lived life greatly, knowing the slower-growing grasses would survive them in the coming heat. Cattle stared you down with the curiosity while chewing their cud, oblivious to the world outside of their fence. The century-old rusted barbed-wire fence served its purpose faithfully, held together by the stoic rot-proof cedar posts born in the valley. Obsessed by failure earlier in the week I had been too preoccupied to experience life beyond the surface, missing what Monet lived to paint.”

Join The Sacred Journey Adventure

Utopia is a real place in the Hill Country of Texas where time moves at a different pace. It's also a place where your life can be transformed.

We want to personally invite you to join us at our Spring Men's Retreat in Utopia, TX. At this function you will live the experience of the books as you join other men from around the world on a great "Adventure."

Dr. Cook will lead you on a spiritual journey based on the principles from the novels that will culminate in the burying of lies in the “Buried Lies Cemetery” on Sunday morning. You just might receive a small dose of SFT mental game instruction along the way and experience the Lost Maples Café, test drive Face-On putting, play the Links of Utopia, take a dip or be baptized in the clear waters of the Sabinal River (weather permitting), hit a shot from beneath the great oak tree, and enjoy a world-class meal at the famous "Laurel Tree" Guest Table Restaurant on Saturday evening.
