Arizona Golf Association Presents First Networking Golf Clinics for Young Professionals

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Arizona Golf Association Presents First Networking Golf Clinics for Young Professionals

March 4, 2019: Scottsdale, AZ – The Arizona Golf Association (AGA) has just finished their first official Happy Hour Golf Clinic, at Talking Stick Resort Golf Club in partnership with the Scottsdale Rising Young Professionals (SRYP), a program of the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce for young professionals ages 23-­‐39. The golf clinic included 40 participants with four PGA professionals and the networking portion had approximately 60 participants.

 

“The average age of golfers in the United States is over 50,” AGA Executive Director, Ed Gowen stated. “There are some outstanding programs for children and teens in Arizona, but I felt there was a void for young professionals. 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 grow our sport.”

 

AGA Happy Hour Golf Clinics are interactive, social events that allow golf courses and young professional networking groups to team up and host engaging 90 minute events that provide golf instruction, fun and building 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 Scottsdale business community, both as an industry and as a networking tool,” said Julie Plummer, Program and Events Manager for the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce. “We found the event to be a perfect value add for our Scottsdale Rising Young Professionals. The turnout was great, and the energy of the event was so positive and powerful. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

 

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 organize 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
