The 2017 MHLA Golf Outing

Like Us Follow  Us Link Us

The 2017 MHLA Golf Outing is our most successful to date! This is a fun industry event but more importantly we are supporting our industry through scholarships that benefit employees at MHLA member properties. We are proud to announce this year’s donation totaling $7,500 to the Maryland Tourism Education Foundation (MTEF), which puts us at a total of $15,000 in scholarship contributions over the last three years.

The support we’ve seen from sponsors for this event has been tremendous. We appreciate the contributions of all who sponsored and/or donated items, which in turn made this scholarship donation possible. Thank you to all of the golfers and volunteers who came out to enjoy the day and congratulations to our winners, listed below.

Our volunteer committee should be very proud of a job well done. Together we all accomplish great things for the lodging industry and our communities.
