    Atlanta Alumni Chapter Golf Outing

    Suwanee, GA

    Time: 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
    City:
    Suwanee, GA
    Location:
    Bear's Best

    It's time again for our annual UNC Kenan-Flagler Atlanta Alumni golf outing. This year it’s on Friday, May 12th.

    This is an outing, not a highly competitive golf. In past years, players who shot the highest scores, often had the best time. So if you have a set of clubs that you haven’t had in your hands in some time, and there is a little rust on your game, don’t let that hold you back. We play with some relaxed rules which allow everyone to have fun. And it’s a great way to get to know your fellow Kenan-Flagler alums.

    This year the outing will be held at Bear’s Best in Suwanee, Georgia. This is a chance to connect with other alumni and enjoy a day outside golfing.

    The $75 registration fee includes cart, green fee, practice range, and use of the beverage cart. A morning tee time will allow participants to finish their round, have lunch with the group and begin the weekend by mid-afternoon.

    We are limited to 16 participants, so register now.
