The 2016 Ladies Golf Outing could not have turned out better! The golf gods sure presented the ladies with a fun filled day of beautiful weather, hysterical caddies, shirtless models, great food, and cold beverages.
The day started out with hole sponsors being transported to their respective holes. In the midst of all the transportation were caddies souping up their carts in hope of a ladies foursome claiming their services for the day. Balloons and streamers were getting attached to carts and beverages were being stocked up. Meanwhile, this was all when it was only 65 degrees out. Everyone was preparing for the hot day with sunglasses, hats, and suntan lotion!
One of the most exciting parts of the day had to have been the caddie auction. 9 caddies were being auctioned and each caddie had a theme which left everyone in the rooms laughing hysterically. There were caddies dressed in all different types of attire from Batman to players from the Schaumburg Boomers baseball team. Needless to say, the ladies were thoroughly enjoying themselves as they had the opportunity to bid on the man that would accompany them throughout the day.
Once lunch and the caddie auction was over there was a sense of urgency that the ladies and caddies were ready to hit the links. Everyone filed out of the ballroom and was on their way to their first hole of the day. In no time everyone was on the course enjoying a beverage, making new connections, and golfing in the 80 degree weather. (That didn't stop Batman from lurking the course)
As part of the fun on the course, there were 3 different contests that the golfers had a chance to win at. One was the longest drive, another was the straightest drive and the third was the longest putt. While the main focus of the day is to enjoy yourself with friends, adding contests makes for some competitive fun. It gives golfers the opportunity to give each other some motivation and work together.
4:30 rolled around and just about all the golfers had finished. The sponsors were all done packing up there things and heading back for cocktail hour. The sun might have drained plenty of the golfers but it didn't stop some of the ladies from enjoying another drink while they relaxed their legs.
All in all, it was another fantastic year for the Ladies Golf Outing. Fortunately, if you missed out, the SBA Golf Classic coming up on July 13. If you haven't already registered or would like to secure a spot as a hole sponsor don't hesitate to give the office a call (847) 413-1010. This will be another event where tickets are sold rapidly!
