21st 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 26, 2018 with a Cocktail/Social Hour held at JJ’s Wine & Spirits 3.0, located on the south side of Sioux Falls. HVAC Elements personnel, manufacturer representatives and customers attended the social. The golf outing was held the following morning at Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort. The day was enjoyed by 132 golfers and over a dozen of appreciated helpers on the golf course.

CONGRATULATIONS to Luke Myrabo of G & R Controls, this year’s putting contest winner!
