The golf course has long had a reputation of being the place where business gets done. Last week Her Next Play took to the course for the first ever Connect on the Course Golf Scramble.
"This event was such an amazing way for me to learn the basics of golf, get good exercise, and be able to connect with my fellow HNP board members! Definitely hope this is a yearly event."
The Scramble format made it a great opportunity for first time players to learn the basics and prepare for future business golf events. Seasoned business professionals shared stories of how golf helped them build relationships with co-workers, clients and business leaders. Everyone was grateful for the rare opportunity to get together in-person, socially distanced of course.
Thanks to Theo Wirth Golf Course for hosting the event! A special thank you to Mandy Boyle for donating all the event prizes.
