Golf tournament features fun twist in Arkansas

Not to brag or anything, but the 15th hole was probably the most fun at the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce golf tournament held recently in Mountain Home, Arkansas. 

We partnered with the chamber to support the annual event, which is a fundraiser for the chamber. Our employees manned the 15th hole at Big Creek Country Club, where golfers had the opportunity to improve their scores by shooting their golf balls out of a golf ball launcher.

Teams had the option to purchase a round of shots for $25. The launcher shot balls about 300 yards, giving many participants the chance for an eagle putt on the hole. The launcher raised an additional $550 in revenue for the chamber!

Fun fact: Business Development Account Manager, Russell, serves as vice president of the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce.Thanks to everyone who helped make the tournament a success. It was a fun day for a good cause!

We partner with our communities and customers, providing the kind of energy that fuels those areas and the lives of those we serve. Feel free to share the stories and photos. Make sure to tag us on FacebookInstagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.
