Sunday Welcome Activities

Icon attendees and their 21+ guest may choose one Sunday Welcome Activity during conference registration.

Joshua Creek Ranch is located northwest of La Cantera, the host hotel for Icon. It occupies a uniquely diverse terrain, including miles of the spring-fed, crystal-clear Joshua Creek and the famous Guadalupe River. This setting for clay target shooting at Joshua Creek Ranch is one of the most beautiful in the country, according to well-traveled shooters. Icon attendees and their guests will participate in the 10-station sporting clay courses, including the simulated driven clay machine. Each attendee will receive 50 clay targets, double-barled rifles, ear protection, and transportation between targets and a seasoned guide during this activity. Boxed lunches will be available following the sporting clay shooting.

Joshua Creek Ranch

San Antonio is the most visited city in Texas! From modern museums and old-world missions to architectural wonders, this city is bursting with cultural history, character, and charm. Begin your journey with a VIP tour of The Alamo, the first and most famous mission, originally known as Mission San Antonio de Calero. Just steps from The Alamo and tucked quietly below street level is the San Antonio Riverwalk. Also known as Paseo del Rio is the USA's largest urban ecosystem, offering 15 miles of meandering trails and lush landscapes along the San Antonio River. Step aboard the Icon private River Cruiser for an exciting and entertaining narrative of the rich history of the San Antonio Riverwalk covering 1.5 miles of the river. Lunch at a fantastic local Mexican restaurant on the riverwalk follows the tour.

San Antonio

Designed by noted golf course architect Jay Morrish and PGA professional Tom Weiskopf, La Cantera Golf Club winds through the Texas Hill Country, offering breathtaking views, the most notable being a sheer 80‐foot drop from the 7th tee to the fairway. Given many accolades, La Cantera Golf Club is consistently ranked amongst the highest in the state.

La Cantera

Enjoy the majesty of the hill-top vista from the comfort of La Cantera's temperature-controlled, infinity-style adults-only pool—network with Icon attendees and their guests during this elevated poolside experience. Topaz is an adults-only infinity edge pool, overlooking the Texas Hill Country. Enjoy sophisticated cocktails and elevated food offerings, while listening to the sounds of relaxed and upbeat Lounge tunes. Topaz offers guests a truly VIP poolside experience.  Topaz stylishly appointed cabanas are equipped with TVs, a safe, and a fully stocked refrigerator.
