Sentient Will Host Luxury Viewing Gallery on the 18th Hole for Invited Guests

Winners of Hole-In-One And Closest-To-The-Pin Contests To Receive Private Jet Travel

Braintree, MA - March 12, 2013 - Sentient Jet, a leading private aviation company in the U.S. and the Official Private Aviation Partner of the PGA TOUR, announced today it will sponsor the 2013 Tavistock Cup, a team golf event featuring professional golfers from around the world. Sentient Jet will host a luxury viewing gallery on the 18th Hole and Tavistock Cup competitors will have the opportunity to win exceptional Sentient prizes.

The tenth annual Tavistock Cup will take place March 25 and 26, 2013 at Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Windermere, Florida. The tournament is an officially sanctioned PGA TOUR event showcasing the ultimate golf competition between six global clubs – Albany, Isleworth Golf & Country Club, Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, Queenwood Golf Club, Oak Tree National and Primland. The Tavistock Cup event will again be one of the most sought after tickets in sports as the invitation-only, no-ropes gallery is limited to approximately 3,500 invited guests.

Along with Sentient’s luxury viewing gallery on the 18th hole for invited guests, Sentient will also provide prizes and charitable donations.

  • Should any golfer record a hole-in-one on the designated par 3 prize hole, each member of their team will receive a $25,000 Sentient Jet Card.
  • In addition, the winner of the “closest-to-the-pin” contest over the two-day competition will be awarded $20,000 worth of flight time.
  • Sentient will also donate a $20,000 Sentient Jet Card to benefit The Tavistock Cup’s charitable effort.

“We are proud to be the Official Private Aviation Partner of the Tavistock Cup for the third consecutive year and provide guests a unique viewing experience at one of the most sought after tickets in professional golf,” stated Andrew Collins, President of Sentient Jet. “Sentient Jet and the Tavistock Cup are perfect partners. The Tavistock Cup features the world’s finest golfers in a relaxed atmosphere. Likewise, it is our mission at Sentient Jet to provide our clients a relaxed and extraordinary experience.”

Sentient Jet is recognized for inventing the jet card approach to private jet travel in 1999 and has built an exceptional reputation over the past 14 years. Sentient Jet formed the industry’s first Independent Safety Advisory Board which oversees the Operator, Aircraft and Pilot Certification Process. This proprietary 9-point safety program covers both internal activities as well as those of the operators participating in the Sentient Jet Card program and is recognized throughout the industry as both rigorous and innovative.

The Sentient Jet Card comes complete with a one-year lock on both hourly rates and fuel surcharge, with the added bonus of 10-15% discounts on hourly pricing for qualifying travel – making it the most intelligent and sensible choice in private air travel.

The Tavistock Cup is more than just a golf tournament. Through the commitment of Tavistock Cup patrons and sponsors, millions of dollars have been donated to local, national and international charitable organizations over the last decade. For more information on the Tavistock Cup, please visit
