What is Links to Leadership all about?
Links to Leadership is a golf tournament and golf clinic held in the Capital Region of Albany, NY. Our committee is a coalition of women in business who support finding ways to bring more women to the golf course and into positions of leadership in our region and beyond. We are currently in our second year!
How did this event come to be?
Links to Leadership Charity Golf Tournament (L2L) began three years ago to introduce golf to a broader group of women in the 518 region’s business community. It is the only charity tournament of its kind in the Capital Region: one that nurtures education and leadership in underserved groups of women and girls and in the larger community.
Business Leaders Georgia Plavocos Kelly and Terry Nawrot, founders of the tournament, recognized the benefits golf bought to their business careers; and wanted to create an event that supports present and
future female leaders to inspire them and educate them to become the next generation of leadership. L2L provides the conduit to develop leadership skills while raising funds for local programs that serve the needs of girls and women.
Where are you playing this year?
The 2023 Links to Leadership Golf Tournament and Clinic will be held on September 11, 2023 at Albany Country Club in Voorheesville, NY.
Is this tournament just for women?
L2L is open to ALL golfers! We welcome all experience levels and humans to join us for this event. The clinic with Kay McMahon is also open to all!
You’re having a tournament *and* a golf clinic? Tell me more!
The skills clinic is conducted by Edukaytion Golf – Kay McMahon, LPGA Professional Hall of Fame. It’s an opportunity for anyone not playing in the tournament who wants to learn or improve and to be a part of the Charity event and it’s held during the same time frame as the Tournament Shotgun event.
I want to do the clinic but I don’t own golf clubs. What do I do?
If you are registered for the clinic, the golf clubs you need will be provided for you! All you have to bring is YOURSELF!
What do I wear to this event? Is there a dress code?
Most of the time, all you need is a shirt with a collar and you are good to go! You should be comfortable and able to move, so a flexible collared shirt with shorts, light pants, or a skort will always work.
I want to be a sponsor! Where can I sign up?
You can choose the sponsorship level that works for you by clicking on our registration page here!
Is there a deadline to register or sponsor?
The last day to sponsor, register to play or join the clinic is Friday, August 11, 2023.
What if I don’t know how to golf? Can I still register?
You’re in the right place! You can sign up for the Skills Clinic with Coach Kay McMahon which happens at the same time and the same location as the tournament.
I am a lone wolf and don’t have a foursome. Can I still register?
Yes, you can! On the registration page, you’re able to choose the number of golfers that you’d like to register. If you are a lone wolf, we will find you a pack to play with!
I have a question that wasn’t addressed here. How do I reach you?
