MADISON, Wis. (2/1/11)--Golfers should plan to take their clubs when they attend this year’s World Credit Union Conference. World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) premier event, July 24-27 in Glasgow, will be immediately followed by a charity golf outing on one of Scotland’s legendary courses. Proceeds from the July 28 Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions outing, a fundraiser presented by CO-OP Financial Services, will benefit the Global Women’s Leadership Network’s outreach efforts on behalf of worldwide credit union development. The proceeds from the Worldwide Foundation Golf Tournament will be used to “help alleviate poverty through the empowerment of women around the world.” said Kimberly Hester, CO-OP executive vice president of network services. The opportunity will pit golfers against the challenges of the Carrick Course on Loch Lomond, which ranks 63rd among the world’s top 100 courses according to www.top100golfcourses.co.uk. Designed by Canadian golf course designer Doug Carrick, the course offers a front nine holes over relatively flat terrain, known as “the lowlands,” with the back nine routed over higher terrain, “the highlands.” The course has views of both Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond from the 10th fairway. The tournament, the second to benefit the network, is not limited to network members and is open to both men and women. The $439 registration fee ($499 after May 20) includes transportation to and from select conference hotels, breakfast, lunch, green fees, prizes, a caddy and tip. All amounts are in U.S. dollars.
