Golf Outing-600x120



The WMCPA and OMNI User Group Golf Outing was held on June 10, 2014 to avoid the extreme heat that we experienced in previous years. The weather was cool with a threat of rain that didn’t arrive until all the Golfers were done for the day.

The Golf Outing was held at Bonnie Brook Golf Course in Waukegan , IL. The Folks at Bonnie Brook made our day very special. The course was in great shape (until we made our mark!), and the dinner and awards after wards proved once again to be a great time networking with colleagues and peers.

The winning Team turned in a score of -7 Under Par. The winning Team was;

Jim Oberholtzer

Joe Dempich

Dave Hicks


Contest Holes Winners were;

Straightest Drive: Alan Stopczynski

Over 225 Yard Drive: Kim Weaver

Longest Putt Made: Marvin Spenneberg
