NACM’s 6th Annual Scholarship Fund Golf Outing was an enormous success. Held annually at NACM’s Credit Congress, the event offers golfers a chance to support corporate credit education, while also having fun with their colleagues and friends.
This year’s 2011 edition was hosted at Gaylord Springs Golf Links, a short bus ride away from the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, where this year’s Credit Congress is still currently being held. Although there was an early threat of rain, the weather held off through the afternoon, giving the golfers a sunny day of competition on the links.
Mulligans, throws and other score-reducing items were offered for sale to all the golfers, and they took great advantage of them to jockey their foursome into first place. Although the competition was fierce, only one foursome could prevail, and the one that did consisted of Jim Epperson, Betsy Rhodes, Tommy Rhodes, and Chuck Scott, with a collective score of 19 under par.
Other individuals winning prizes that day were D’Wana Chadwick, who won the ladies’ closest-to-the-pin contest, Darlene Pratt, who won the ladies’ long drive contest, Joe Grier, who won the men’s long drive contest, and Michael Williams, who won the men’s closest-to-the-pin contest. Williams generously returned his winning gift card so that it could be re-sold in the NACM Scholarship Foundation Silent Auction, providing the fund with even more opportunities to provide education funds to commercial credit professionals in need.
NACM thanks all of its golfers for their participation and support! Special thanks also to MiTek Inc., who donated golf towels for the event, and United TranzActions (UTA), who donated water bottles.
