We're giving you plenty of notice so you can draft your best foursome(whether that be to maximize competitiveness or maximize FUN!) for this year's YPCI golf outing at Eagle Creek Golf Course! If you've never been golfing before, no worries – this event will house a healthy mix of amateurs, dabblers, and semi-pros. And if you don’t have a foursome, that ok! We will be allocating players to foursomes too; this is a great way to get in some good networking with a few newly met young professionals.
This event will be a scramble which means:
Four players form a team, with the rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of players keeping individual scores. Each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot, subject to certain criteria.
Most of all, be prepared to have fun. You'll enjoy a fun afternoon out on the green while golfing, networking, food, bottomless adult beverages, prizes, and a large gift raffle at the post-golf reception – so plan on sticking around afterward. It's why this is one of our favorite events and we don't mind if we say so. This year we are encouraging players to use Uber and Lyft to get to and from the golf outing. We will be working with those providers to have rides available in the area once we are done. We want to everyone to have a good time but also make smart decisions.
Our event sponsor for the golf outing this year is Goelzer Investment Management. Because Goelzer does a lot of charity work with Gleaners Food Bank, we have decided to donate all profits from the event to Gleaners. So buy those mulligans and raffle tickets because the money will be going to support a good cause!
