#CWLVI is Coach Michael Woodson’s Golf & Lifestyle Event in Las Vegas. The event will bring friends, family and colleagues together off the court. The luxury event celebrates the world of basketball while showcasing the best of golf, celebrity and entertainment.


The Coach Woodson Las Vegas Invitational


Coach Michael Woodson’s Golf and Lifestyle Event in Las Vegas. Hosted during the NBA Summer League, CWLVI merges basketball with golf and lifestyle in support of a great cause.



Timeless beauty and exceptional service makes The Mirage one of the most beloved hotels in the city. The luxurious atmosphere is entrenched with exotic floral, The Mirage’s iconic volcano and a beautiful waterfall.

Cascata Golf Club


Cascata, Italian for “waterfall,” is aptly named. A 418-foot waterfall from the steep mountainside towering above the driving range, meandering through the practice facilities, cascading into a river that roars through the clubhouse, eventually culminating in a tranquil stream. The air is pure, the silence beyond description.



Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow all while having fun. They are truly The Positive Place For Kids. Please help us let these boys and girls know you care about them too.

Coach Woodson

Mike Woodson


Michael Woodson grew up in Indiana and played collegiate basketball under Bob Knight at Indiana University (IU). In Woodson’s junior year, he was the leading scorer on the Hoosier team that went on to win the 1979 NIT Tournament. In 1980, the Hoosiers were led by Woodson to advance and win the Big Ten championship, bringing the team to the 1980 Sweet Sixteen.

Woodson continued on to the Professional circuit, where he was selected 12th overall by the New York Knicks in the 1980 NBA Draft and played in the league for 11 impactful years.

After serving as an assistant coach to the Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, Woodson assisted the Detroit Pistons in winning the 2004 NBA Championship under Head Coach Larry Brown.

Thereafter, Woodson took over as head coach of the Atlanta Hawks for 5 seasons during his tenure, guiding the Hawks to the NBA Playoffs in each of his last three seasons and into the Eastern Conference Semifinals in his last two seasons. Woodson’s 206 career wins are fourth-best in Hawks franchise history.

In 2011, the New York Knicks announced Mike Woodson as an assistant coach and, later, interim head coach. Woodson was named the full-time head coach of the Knicks for the 2012-13 season, during which the Knicks compiled a record of 54-28 and secured the second seed in the Eastern Conference. Coach Woodson was the Assistant Coach for the Los Angeles Clippers 2014- 2018.

Most importantly, Coach Woodson is known as a man of accountability, sportsmanship, as well as an advocate for player and personal development. He founded The Coach Woodson Las Vegas Invitational to create a special summer experience for basketball coaches, players and enthusiasts. The three-day destination brings together Coach Woodson’s friends, family and colleagues to enjoy time with each other and support a strong charitable cause.
