Every year around this time, the Montana Chamber Foundation hosts the Governors' Cup Golf Tournament. This is the premier business golf tournament in the state where hundreds of golfers (more than 75 teams of five players) from around the country come and play and network in the Flathead. It's an excellent opportunity to show off our state and hopefully lure new business to Montana.
This year we are expanding the tournament to three courses. Teams will still play only two courses on Friday and Saturday, but we added a third course in order to add teams that have been on the waiting list for years. This is the 21st time we've done the tournament, and it's popularity grows each year. The proceeds of the tournament go to fund the High School Business Challenge, a business simulation course taught in many high schools around Montana.
Other may try to copy it, but there's only one Governors' Cup. Even though I don't get to golf (running one of the courses this year), it sure beats two days in the office.
