What are the “Pre-Golf Executive Meetings” about ?
These are 15 minute blocks of time prior to the start of the golf tournament which you may meet with the executive of your choice. Depending on your level of sponsorship. Discuss the topic of your choice. This is a way to enable more participants to have access to the Celanese executives. So, you may meet with a certain executive but play golf with a different one. Please see the Package Detail page for more information on sponsorship level required.
Will I receive my top choice of executive for a meeting and for golf?
Platinum and Gold Package Sponsors will be given priority scheduling for pre-golf meetings and golf with Celanese executives. It is not guaranteed that every participant will be matched with their top 1 or 2 choices of executives. However, we will make every effort to accommodate requests and will advise you on both your pre-golf meeting time and CE executive and fourth player shortly before the golf tournament.
Is it necessary to have a pre-golf meeting ?
No. This is another opportunity for participants at the higher sponsorship levels to have more access to Celanese leaders, especially if a participant is unable to play golf with their top 1 or 2 requested executive.
How can I play golf with the CEO ?
This opportunity is reserved for the United Way Title Sponsor. (If you are interested in becoming a United Way Title Sponsor for next year's tournament, please contact the Event Chairperson). However, you may request a pre-golf meeting with other Celanese executives.

If there is rain, will we still play golf?
