CCUA 6th Annual Golf Tournament Huge Success

On Thursday, September 30th, the sixth annual golf tournament for the Cooperative Credit Union Association was held at The Haven Country Club in Boylston, MA.  More than 125 golfers and volunteers participated in this year’s tournament.

There were many friends of the credit union industry that provided generous support for the event.  Special recognition goes to the event’s major sponsor, CUNA Mutual Group, for acting as the title sponsor for the event.  CUNA Mutual also sponsored the hole-in-one contest and the golf carts.  Additional prime sponsors were:

  • - Alera Group – Sponsor of the Beverage Cart

  • - Direct Federal Credit Union – Sponsor of Breakfast
  • - Winbrook – Sponsor of Reception
  • - PSCU – Sponsor of Putting Contest

The CCUA’s Chapters were also instrumental in making the day a success by sponsoring the Par 3 Hit-the-Green contest.  CCUA recognizes that each of the Chapters does excellent work to support both CCUA and the industry as a whole throughout the year.
