Business Developer Manager Andrew Goodwin is excited to be a part of history. For the first time ever Thomasville's Country Oaks Golf Course will host Georgia City Solutions Golf Open. This event is usually held in the Atlanta metro area but after seeing the course all parties involved in the move felt Thomasville was the right fit.

The City of Roses has many great things in the works attracting business opportunities from all areas. Goodwin shares they are steadily building workforce development and how the golf tournament will help grant more exposure for more opportunities.
"So, we'll certainly have an impact, but I think the impact is more long term. It's going to bring more attention to the needs of Thomasville and the surrounding communities, not just Thomasville," says Goodwin.
Things such as Thomasville's workforce challenges and underserved areas.
With more than 100 players registered it's safe to say The Rose City is ready to lace up their golf shoes.
