2012 NVTC Golf Tournament Benefits Equal Footing Foundation Computer Clubhouses!
Warm and sunny fall weather greeted golfers on Monday, Oct. 1, at NVTC's Annual Golf Tournament at the caddie-only Club at Creighton Farms in Aldie, Va. This year's tournament raised $30,000 for the Equal Footing Foundation, NVTC's charitable arm.
After a shotgun start, teams of top golfers from the region’s technology community competed in a full day of putting and driving on the links. The tournament offered spectacular views and challenging fairways, ranging from par three to par five. After the tournament's end, all enjoyed a fine catered dinner.
