CFA Golf Outing
Lou Conti Lifetime Achievement Award (Buck Briggs)

The 60th annual Ben Mintz, CFA Golf Outing is July 29th- 30th and promises to be our best ever!

The course will be conventional 18 hole play with twelve qualifiers advancing for a chance to win a $1,000,000 hole-in-one prize in the “Pete Noyes Million Dollar Shootout”. Additionally, all shootout qualifiers will take one shot from a 100 yard distance, with the closest to the pin being awarded a $10,000 cash prize. Matt Baughan has the course in terrific condition and you definitely won’t want to miss the exciting shootout finals!

As importantly, this event represents the largest financial impact to the operating budget of the “New CFA”.
