There were 148 golfers that attended the 15th Annual Construction Golf Classic and Smoker at the prestigious Glen Oaks Country Club.   The Construction Golf Classic and Smoker has always provided a great opportunity to mix a little business with pleasure and this year’s event did not disappoint.

The Construction Golf Classic and Smoker continues to be an important fundraiser for the MBI-PAC and the funds raised here will help MBI play a major role in construction and business issues at the Iowa Capitol come January.   Also, with this being a non-election year, the MBI-PAC is able to use this event to help be in a position to actively support pro-business, pro-construction candidates as November 2014 draws near.
