The day was filled with festive refreshments from Young’s Market and Southern Wine & Spirits. We thank them for their support on and off the course! We also want to thank all of the on course food vendors comprised of our local outstanding restaurants and vendors that provided amazing food, beverages and specialty products! What a great showing! Our prize box raffle has become a tradition! Thanks to all those that contributed amazing prizes for this special raffle.

And congratulations to the winners! It was a great day of fun, friendly competition and camaraderie among our members and industry professionals. Those that attended the first ever pre-event reception had a great time being pampered by Marilyn Monroe Spa, enjoying wonderful wine and libations and bidding on fun auction items!
