2020 - WGN Our Story
When the world shut down with the Covid-19 global pandemic, World Golf Network flourished. All networking was pushed to zoom or other computer video platforms except WGN. By hosting all their events outdoors, WGN was able to provide both their members and guests a safe environment to foster strong business relationships in a more traditional and effective way.
