Golf Tournament Brings Out 300+

Last month the PNBAA community enjoyed a picture perfect day for the 10th annual Golf Tournament. It was the largest PNBAA engagement yet with 300+ golfers, sponsors and volunteers covering two courses.

Special thanks to Title, Golf Ball and Hole Sponsor Dassault Falcon Jet  and the record number of supporters for making this unprecedented engagement possible. 

Dozens of participants won golf and raffle prizes to boast about. The 10th place golfers won the biggest prize as a fun way to honor this 10th year. Congratulations Lukas Cannon, Mick Kendall, Bill Appleton and Jake Nicol!

Pictured below are happy golfers, sponsors and volunteers hard at work:
