The game of golf has long been considered a door opener and a deal closer. Many middle-market dealmakers agree with P.G. Wodehouse, who said: “To find a man’s true character, play golf with him.” But for many women, the golf course represents the ultimate men’s club. That’s no longer the case for members of the Philadelphia chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth.
The chapter recently hosted Women in Dealmaking: 2016 Golf Outing, Clinic & Reception at the Centennial Golf Course at the Philadelphia Country Club. The event offered attendees a choice between taking a golf clinic run by PGA professionals, or playing nine holes. It was sponsored by OFS Capital Management LLC and was the brainchild of Marsha Zebley, who leads business development for the middle market lending business.
