Cultivating Culture: Inside the 13th Annual Masters Putt-Putt Tournament

Christian Brothers Automotive (CBA) recently concluded its 13th annual Masters Putt-Putt Tournament, an event that has become a staple of our company culture and a highlight on our calendar each year. Held at our Home Office in Houston, the tournament took place on April 12, bringing together our team for a day filled with camaraderie and friendly competition.

Inspired by the prestigious Masters Tournament, we stopped work early on Thursday afternoon, sharing dinner selected by our 2023 winner. Then, employees showcased their teamwork and creativity as they broke off into groups and each constructed their section of an imaginative 9-hole putt-putt course within the confines of our Home Office. Each hole was a testament to our team's creativity, featuring elaborate designs such as bridges, tunnels, windmills, and other captivating obstacles that added excitement to the game.

But more than just a test of putting skills, the tournament was an opportunity for our team to bond and strengthen their relationships. Donnie Carr, our President and CEO, perfectly captured the spirit of the event, stating, “Our Masters Putt-Putt Tournament embodies the spirit and core values of Christian Brothers Automotive. It's not just about winning; it's about coming together as a team. And letting out our competitive spirits, of course."

As the tournament kicked off on April 12, excitement filled the air as teams competed for the coveted green jacket and the title of Masters Putt-Putt Champion. Amidst the friendly competition, laughter and cheers, the true essence of the event shone through—the sense of unity that defines our CBA family.

Alongside our Home Office team, several shops from across the country participated as well. Lance Mutzman and the CBA Flower Mound team went all out, offering guests a chance to win a free oil change and catering the event with all the classics, like egg salad, BBQ pork and pimento cheese sandwiches. Jason Moore and the Flowery Branch team enjoyed their first tournament this year, enticing guests to participate by entering each successful putt into a drawing for a chance to win a free tire rotation, oil change or Blackstone grill.

The Masters Putt-Putt Tournament is more than just a fun few days, it’s a tradition that exemplifies our commitment to fostering a supportive and inclusive workplace culture. By providing opportunities for our team to come together, collaborate, and celebrate their successes, we're building a community that's not just about work—it's about family.

As we reflect on another successful tournament, we're filled with gratitude for our dedicated team members who make events like these possible and bring their creativity and enthusiasm to our company. These culture-creating moments are a testament to the strength of our CBA family and the values that guide us in everything we do.
