"We ran our Customer Appreciation Golf outing on our own for two years. After Talking with Steve, we turned the entire operation over to him and his team. That took our event to a new level. His teams efforts and dedication allowed us to pick great golf courses, offer incredible meals, and most importantly, increase our business partners enjoyment the day of the event. From registration through the awards ceremony and everything in between, Steve’s team is first class and I would highly recommend the use of his services."
Steve Fournier, President
Stephen’s passion for golf started when he began playing at age 8. At 10 he began to caddy, learning the game and etiquette from the ground up and, later, moved on to pro shop duties as a teen. Right out of college, he continued his golf career as a sales and marketing executive for Yamaha and E-Z-GO.
After leaving the golf industry to become a product manager for such companies as Worldcom and Xerox Engineering Systems, Stephen's passion for golf and his entrepreneurial spirit became the driving force behind Premiere Golf Events, an event planning company that plans and manages charity and corporate golf tournaments. Founded in 2005, Premiere Golf Events is a successful and growing business which has planned and managed over 350 golf tournaments since its inception in 2005.
In 2006, Stephen became a founding partner in a startup hole in one venture, New England Hole in One. As the company grew, he discovered that there were many opportunities outside of the New England Region for us and rebranded the company as Nationwide Hole in One to allow us to compete across the United States.
Stephen is intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of both Nationwide Hole In One and Premiere Golf Events. Despite his busy corporate schedule, he still manages to squeeze in regular rounds and boasts an impressive 3 handicap.
