Big I CT Golf Tournament: A Spectacular Success as the Biggest Agent Golf Tournament in Connecticut


The annual Big I Connecticut Golf Tournament at Tunxis Country Club on August 9th was a resounding success, uniting members of the independent insurance agency channel for a day of camaraderie, networking, and thrilling competition. This year's event exceeded expectations, solidifying its status as Connecticut's premier agent golf tournament.

With the move this year to the picturesque greens of Tunxis Country Club, a remarkable 47 teams participated, competing not only for titles but also coveted cash and door prizes. This makes the tournament one of the largest in Big I Connecticut history.

Winning Moments: Team CNA—John Wells, Ryan ViVenzio, Justin Francini, and Luke Whitmore—secured first place, while Team Arabella—Guy Lamarche, Mike Regan, Matt Rice, and Steve Holland—claimed second. Sue Bragdon and Matt Ringland earned Longest Drive honors, and Anand Patel's precision secured the Closest to the Pin award with a mere 1 foot 3 inches. Ruth Masso triumphed in the 50/50 Tee Shot contest.

After a fun day of play, golfers relaxed and connected with friends at the Social Reception.  It included the installation of Big I Connecticut's 2023-2024 Board of Directors, with Bob Jones of Fairfield County Bank Insurance Services as the new Chair, reiterating Big I Connecticut's commitment to supporting agencies and teams, and their ability to serve customers best.
