18th 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 30, 2015 with a Cocktail/Social Hour held at the O’Connor Group office that was attended by a variety of O'Connor Group personnel, manufacturer representatives and customers. The golf outing was held the following morning at Willow Run Golf Course. The day was enjoyed by 141 golfers and over a dozen of appreciated helpers on the golf course. 

Again this year, we held numerous contests with payouts going to winners and the 2015 charity of choice, The Community Outreach. CONGRATULATIONS to Lance Witte of Wessington Springs School District, this year’s putting contest winner! Proceeds from the sale of “Mulligans” and portions of the “Calcutta” pot and putting contest made our contribution to this very worthy cause… $1334! O’Connor Group is generously matching the fundraising efforts making our grand total contribution $2500!!
