Arizona Golf Association Presents Networking Golf Clinics for Young Professionals

August 1, 2019: Scottsdale, AZ – The Arizona Golf Association (AGA) has partnered with the Phoenix Fray in hosting the first ever 3-week mini series for the new Happy Hour Golf Program. The clinic will have two degrees of difficulty; beginner and intermediate.

 

“The average age of golfers in the United States is over 50,” AGA Executive Director, Ed Gowan stated. “There are some outstanding programs for children and teens in Arizona, but I felt there was a void for young adults. The AGA feels it’s vital to attract young professionals to the game of golf because they are at a time in their life where they are finishing school, starting their careers, looking to make business connections, and enjoy life with their family and friends. Golf is the perfect solution and we feel creating these clinics is the right answer to growing our sport.”

 

AGA Happy Hour Golf Clinics are interactive and social events that allow golf courses and young professional networking groups to team up and host engaging events that provide golf instruction, fun and the opportunity to build genuine relationships. The golf clinics consist of two 30-minute sessions of basic instruction to the game of golf accompanied by the third session… Happy Hour.

 

“Golf is a valuable lifestyle tool that can assist in building relationships at all stages of life. Golf is also a vital part of the business community, both as an industry and as a networking tool,” said Nathan Blaha, City Commissioner for Phoenix Fray. “We are excited to give our members a sport they haven’t had the opportunity to play before. We want to make sure we are encompassing all our members and their needs. We figured what better way than with the addition of golf.”

 

AGA Happy Hour Golf Clinics are open to any and all chambers of commerce and young professional organizations, groups, associations, and even companies. The AGA organizes the program with a local golf course. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Colltey Sheldon at [email protected] or visit www.agahappyhour.com.
