Thank you to everyone who came out for a fun evening of golf contests, giveaways, and games at Golfsmith, Hamilton Place. Families were welcomed into the store by Golfopotamus, making it’s debut in Chattanooga. Once inside they collected their PUMA sunglasses and registered for the evenings giveaways, which included a $100 gift card to Golfsmith, $25 gift cards to Golfsmith, Odyssey White Hot putter, and rounds of golf to Windstone Golf Club.
Each junior had their chance at two contests to win prizes. Jacob Cornell won closest to the hole at 7’12” and Patti Grace Brannan knows her distance as she nailed her 138 yard guess in the guess your drive contest. Once the contests were completed juniors convened on the putting green where PGA Master Professional Jex Wilson led instruction and games.
The evening wrapped up with our giveaways and each participant received an exclusive discount coupon to the store. Information and resources to junior golf events and activities taking place in the region were also provided. Thank you to the following for contributing to a fun night:
