Confessions of a Second Year Golf and Gamble Participant
During the 2016 season, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and signed up for the Golf and Gamble weekend excursion. I was so glad I did! I played a fantastic links course surrounded by beautiful hills along the Ohio River. There was good food Friday evening and great food and drinks Sat evening after a refreshing shower following our golf round. I got to know more of my fellow Columbus EWGA'ers up close at dinner through a fun icebreaker...but I'm not talking! Rooms were very nice as were the staff at the hotel and the golf course. You could gamble as much or as little as you liked. Soooooo, when the invite went out this season, 2017, I wondered to myself if this event could possibly be as much fun as last season. I signed up to see for myself! Read more here...
