9 'n Dine 


 

 

 

 

 

Kelowna Chamber Nine 'N Dine Golf Tournament |    September 25, 2014 | The Pinnacle    
The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce knows there is no better way to welcome fall and bid farewell to summer than to host one last golf tournament for the year.  The 9 ‘n Dine is ever-popular; it gets dark at just the right time, when the foursomes have toured around the course, and dinner and prizes for winners, and almost winners, await. There are 72 spaces for golfers to take part in the tournament.

 

Kelowna is happily home to many of the most spectacular courses in the central Okanagan, and the tournament sells out to local business people and sports enthusiasts who don’t want to let summer go.  All sponsor marketing is subject to course rules. This year we enjoy Gallagher’s fabulous Pinnacle Executive Nine – fun, and harder than it looks!
