Dear Members,

Please join us for our annual golf outing, Thursday, September 11th. This year the event will be held at Falcon Ridge Golf Club in Lenexa.


The format will be the same 4-person team scramble with multiple flights and course prizes. The cost is $75/player, which includes: green fees, a sleeve of balls, cart rental, 2 drink tickets, unlimited range balls and a brat/burger lunch buffet. The schedule will be as follows:

Registration: 11:00 – 12:45
Lunch: 11:30 – 12:45
Shotgun Start: 1:00 – 6:00

We will need to provide a headcount to the course one week prior, so please send us the names and teams of your company by
Friday, September 5th. For those of you without a complete team, we’ll pair you with others as necessary.

In addition, we’d like your thoughts on possible future sites for this event. In the past we’ve tried to provide a variety of courses and would like to revisit some of them, or if there is a course you’d like to recommend, we’d like to hear it.

Please give this and these courses some thought. When you check in, we’d like to know what you think.

Sycamore Ridge
Prairie Highland
Falcon Lakes
Tiffany Greens
Deer Creek (most likely not since they do not have a driving range)
