2020 SFT Spring Retreat
Utopia, TX

April 17-19, 2020


Utopia is indeed a real place. It is a place in the Hill Country of Texas where time moves at a different pace. It is also a place where your life can be transformed. We want to personally invite you to join us at an SFT Retreat in Utopia Texas. 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.

Space is limited so register today! You can also sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page to receive updates regarding the retreat and Dr. Cook’s monthly blog.

Small Group Golf Adventures
to Great Courses

Each year Dr. Cook will put together several fabulous trips for seven players plus him to some great venues in golf. These high end adventures have two purposes. To share a once in a life time golf experience and to provide a place for men to share their "faith story" with each other. These first come first serve trips will be listed as they come available.
