SWPTA 2016 Conference Agenda

Monday, September 12, 2016

12:00 PM – 4:00 PM           SWPTA Golf Outing - No Golf Experience Required!

This year SWPTA is off to Topgolf! Never been a golfer? No experience required.  Anyone can play Topgolf, from aspiring pros to those who’ve never walked 18 holes. All you have to do is swing a club and try to hit your microchipped balls into dartboard-like targets. It’s competitive. It’s fun. And everything is always better with SWPTA folks!   

 Join SWPTA Attendees for an afternoon of networking, team building and plain ole’ fun.  Top Golf does require a membership to play, but it’s just $5.00, signup in advance (https://myaccount.topgolf.com/choose_site ) or sign up on site.  

Approximate  cost to play: $40 payable onsite at Topgolf.
