2020 IFMA Golf Classic - We finally Link Up!

After months of staying apart, we finally had an opportunity to gather members, industry colleagues and friends. Yes, golf in the great outdoors proved to be the best medicine to finally find a way to network, foster friendship, and share stories of surviving the pandemic in person and not on a Zoom session!

The 2020 IFMA Golf Outing at Tapawingo National Golf Club on Sept. 25 drew a crowd and certainly some laughs and stress relief for more than 200 golfers at the sold-out event. Mother Nature even understood, giving us blue skies, a calming breeze and absolutely gorgeous temperatures that hovered between 60 and 80 degrees. In short, a fantastic day and a great way to reconnect safely after so many days apart.

Our golfers found the fairways and greens up to par and beyond at Tapawingo. We had several winners and contests that showcased their skills:

Winning Teams
Woodland & Prairie Flight:             Kozeny, Kozeny and Harris – 61
Prairie & Meramec Flight:               Dragovich, Lane, Fernandez and Williams – 61

Golfers teed off at 9 a.m. and received a box lunch while on the course. We had to forgo the traditional networking hour after the rounds ended but everyone received Chick-fil-A sandwiches after a day on the course.

And no one went thirsty or hungry during the day with several hole sponsors manning tents that served beverages, tasty treats and more. Thanks to our networking hole sponsors:

  • BELFOR Property Restoration
  • BrightView Landscapes
  • Focal Point Outdoor Solutions

And hats off to our 2020 Golf Classic Gold Sponsors:

We could not offer this annual tournament or the chapter’s yearly activities without the financial support of these sponsors. Matt Huelsing deserves credit for his tireless efforts as our Sponsorship Chair.  

Lastly, the tournament took the hard work of so many members who volunteered their time and talent. Many special thanks to Andrew Dillard, Chair, and Vance Scherrer, Co-Chair, and the entire Golf Committee, for their perseverance during these challenging times.

Here's to next year when we meet again on the links. Let’s hope we can do so without any worries of linking up!
