Perfect weather on July 28 (if a little sultry!), friendly competition, networking, and a beautiful course all added up to a fun afternoon on the fairways at this year’s At The Tee golf outing! View photos on the Chamber's Facebook page HERE.
Presented by PNC Bank, some sixty plus golfers gathered in high spirits to play nine holes of golf in a 4-person scramble format. Getting practice in first at the putting green (sponsored by The Barstow School) and the driving range (sponsored by Bank of Blue Valley), golfers were also treated to a free clinic by Skip Maiwald PGA with tips to improve their golf swing.
A shot-gun start at 2pm saw the golfers set off in their Fairways of Ironhorse sponsored golf carts, golf balls (sponsored by Consolidated Communications) and clubs at the ready!
Featuring contests along the way like straightest drive, longest putt and closest to the pin, players were welcomed at each tee and green by our wonderful sponsors with branded signage provided by FastSigns of Overland Park. Hole 5 was the Hole-in-One contest, sponsored by McInnes Group, with a $10K prize for the winner, but unfortunately, luck was not on the side of the golfers!
No round of golf is complete without a beverage or two, and we were thrilled to have First Business Bank sponsor the beverage cart and Frontier Restoration provide the signature cocktail, Leawood Lake Water.
At the end of the afternoon, the golfers and sponsors headed to Vista 154 inside the clubhouse for the after party and prize giving. Sponsored by Renewal by Andersen, with food provided by Taco Naco KC, the after party was a good chance to share stories and experiences from the golf course and to congratulate or commiserate on golfing achievements!
All too soon, after months of planning, the golf outing was over, but luckily our golfers went home with packed swag bags, sponsored by AdventHealth.
