19th Annual Golf Classic

The Sioux Falls offices of O'Connor Company, G & R Controls and Balancing Professionals hosted another successful golf tournament. Thanks to employees, manufacturers and customers for all of their efforts and generosity in donating prizes and sponsorships!

This year's event began on July 28, 2016 with a Cocktail/Social Hour held at Fernson Brewery, located on the north side of Sioux Falls. O'Connor Group personnel, manufacturer representatives and customers attended the social. The golf outing was held the following morning at Willow Run Golf Course. The day was enjoyed by 124 golfers and over a dozen of appreciated helpers on the golf course. 

Again this year, we held numerous contests with payouts going to winners and the 2016 charity of choice, Lifescape. Proceeds from the sale of “Mulligans”, "Putting Contest" and portions of the “Calcutta” pot and putting contest made our contribution to this very worthy cause… $868! O’Connor Group is generously matching the fundraising efforts making our grand total contribution $1736!!

CONGRATULATIONS to Derek Schmidt from Howe, Inc. who won a personalized fire pit from Wheeler Tank Manufacturing, Brian Field from the Beresford School District who won the annual grill giveaway donated by Daikin.

After lunch and the awarding of pin prizes, Bulldog Heat Pumps sponsored a closest to the pin competition. CONGRATULATIONS to Lori Engesmoe of Madison Lutheran Home who placed first, Ken Giegling of Avera Health who placed second and Lance Witte of Wessington Spring School District who placed third.

Finally, O’Connor Group sponsored a chance at a $1M Hole In One prize. Dwayne Christoffels of Midwestern Mechanical won the chance to take a shot at it.  No million dollars this time… maybe next year!
