GALLERY: 3rd Annual Electric Elle Golf Tournament (Sept. 2015)
By Renée Francoeur
September 16, 2015 – The nearly 60 golfers who gathered at Cardinal Golf Club in King, Ont. yesterday for the 3rd Annual Electric Elle tournament couldn’t have picked a better day for it.
Compared to 2014’s event—which saw torrential downpours—the women at the ladies-only event this year easily worked up a sweat in the sun.
Electric Elle, which EBMag is a sponsor of, brings together women of the electrical industry—including electrical contracting, distribution, and manufacturing—for a 9-hole round of Best Ball golf, followed by dinner and awards. Organizers note, you don’t need to be a good golfer to participate (even if you’ve never golfed at all, you’re welcome!), and prizes are awarded for all skill levels, such as Closest to the Pin, Most Balls Lost and Best Shot onto the Wrong Hole.
This year’s event also featured an optional golf clinic on the driving range, before the tournament for tips and advice from a golf pro.
