Chamber’s Young Professionals to host
Summer Swing Crazy Golf Par-Tee July 10, 2015

July 1, 2015, Newnan—The Newnan-Coweta Chamber’s Young Professionals will soon hit the greens for a day of team building, networking, and playing a round of Crazy Golf, a fun twist on the traditional game.

The Summer Swing Crazy Golf Par-Tee is set for Friday, July 10, 2015 from 2:30-7:30pm at the Newnan Country Club. The event begins with registration at 2:30pm and a shotgun start at 3:30pm.

“It’s a golf event, but it’s not really golf,” said Samantha Brazie of Progressive Heating and Air and chair of the YPs, who noted there will also be team-building exercises sponsored by Heritage Volkswagen of South Atlanta, Cargill, Abide Brewing Company and J. Smith Lanier & Co. “We’re going to have lots of fun stuff throughout the day,” she said.

No golf experience is necessary, but golf attire is required.

Registration fee is $45 for singles and $180 for a team of four. The fee includes hors d’oeuvres, all golf fees and three drink tickets.  There will be live music, raffle prizes and awards.

The Young Professionals of Coweta County champion professional and community growth and serve as the doorway to a meaningful career in Coweta County.  The program is open to anyone ages 21 – 45 or who is young at heart.  This growing demographic represents the next generation of leadership in Coweta County and the Chamber encourages anyone interested to connect.

For more information, call 770-253-2270 or email info@newnancowetachamber.org.

In today’s segment, Patrick talks about all of the events for the 4th of July and all of the wonderful things you can do at Callaway Gardens with our guest, Ms. Rachel Crumbley!
