19 Nov Markon visits Top Golf
As a part of the Markon Ambassador Program, which encourages employees to spend time together doing something fun, an outing was arranged at Top Golf in Alexandria on October 22. Top Golf is a venue that combines an outdoor patio bar atmosphere with a special driving range. You and your friends play golf games that anyone from the regular golfer to the inexperienced golfer can play. The range has dartboard-like targets in the ground. The golfers take turns at the tee while their friends watch and enjoy refreshments. The object is to hit each in-ground dartboard and the closer to the “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out you hit your microchipped balls measured alike usual ranges by yards, the more points you receive. It is all done electronically so no one has to “keep score” but they do have to pay attention to what dart board they are supposed to be aiming at! These events are great opportunities for people who may not work together on a day to day basis to get to know each other better and build greater cohesiveness within the company.
