GFDA'S 2017 AUTUMN CLASSIC

Our Autumn Classic was a BIG success!
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this event!


Our Autumn Classic had a great response with 55 attendees and everyone had a GREAT time! As often happens, emergencies and business intervened which unfortunately kept many who registered from attending - we missed you and hope to see you at our District Meetings in October! 

As we loaded the shuttle, you could feel the excitement in the air and with our escort, courtesy of the Cobb County Police, attendees arrived right at the steps of the stadium.  Upon walking up the steps, the excitement grew and attendees quickly enjoyed all the sights and everything The Battery and SunTrust Park had to offer!  Once we gathered in the Hank Aaron Terrace, we enjoyed delicious food, beverages, peanuts and popcorn while watching our home town Atlanta Braves! The score didn't matter, everyone was busy enjoying time with their friends and making new ones! After the game, we were escorted back for a restful night sleep at the elegant Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel.  Overnight guests enjoyed a delicious breakfast before walking a few steps to the beautiful City Club Marietta course.  Each player enjoyed a round of golf on the challenging, mountain course that offered the finest playing experience among rolling hills, towering pines and spectacular Southern vistas!  Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams, as well as our Longest Drive and 2 Closest to the Pins winners, received crystal tournament trophies and unique Braves autographed memorabilia.  

GFDA’s Executive Committee and Executive Director would like to thank David Roach for his tireless work and our Sponsors for their support on this 1st Autumn Classic.  Next year, we look forward to inviting our sister associations in surrounding states to participate and seeing everyone in 2018!

If you attended, we encourage you to share your photos on our app and Facebook page, or email them to staff@gfda.org, so we can share the memories with everyone!
