The weather made for some anxious moments but everyone's patience was rewarded with a wonderful day for golf. Our tournament this year returned to the Golf club of Houston, one of the premier golf courses in Texas and home of the Shell Houston Open!
A fun time was had by all and our continued goal for the tournament to have a fun venue to meet and socialize with other SIM members and attract new members was realized. All proceeds will help promote local STEM-based educational and nonprofit organizations. Geneys Works and AITP were two of the returning charitable organizations benefitting from the tournament.
