2020 Events

2020 Executive Open

This year's Executive Open on August 31 looked a little different. Elbow bumps replaced high-fives and handshakes, networking was socially distanced, and impromptu conversations across the parking lot took the place of the post-round reception. What made the event a huge success once again is what remains the same each year–a great turnout of 100+ golfers, valuable introductions being made and important deals being struck.
