New this year the Carolinas Summer Conference will be held on the beautiful Crystal Coast in the Southern Outer Banks. Nestled on an island in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina, the Coral Bay Club will be our host this summer.

The focus of the weekend will be education and family. As such, the schedule of events is tailored toward earning as many credits as possible, while also ending the days early enough so as to provide ample time for attendees and families to enjoy the summer fun.

Education details are coming together and will be updated as finalized.

The Carolinas Chapter and the Carolinas Club Foundation (CCF) would like to thank John Deere Golf (a Platinum Sponsor) and all of the Carolinas Sponsorship Program (CSP) partners.

The CSP is a collaborative effort between the Carolinas Chapter, the CCF and core organizations that have demonstrated an interest in and support of the club industry. The Program creates a bridge between our Chapter’s club management professionals and the companies most closely connected and committed to serving the industry. The partnerships are invaluable as events such as the Carolinas Summer Conference are better afforded to our members because of them.
