Kelowna: Summer has slipped away and the Kelowna Chamber is hosting its first live event for many months: the always popular Chamber Golf Tournament at The Harvest in Kelowna. The tournament is now sold out with a wait list (144+ golfers and 22 sponsors). Different look this year: a full day of golf, no shotgun start – the first group tees off at 8:00 a.m. and golfers will tee off throughout the day for good social distancing.
Sponsors have signed up to be at each and every hole; there are four holes-in-one with prizes totaling $40,000 plus an additional $4,000 in prizes for best foursome, long drive and closest to the pin. The Okanagan Sun are running a 50/50 draw and there are lots of goodies, a box lunch, driving range warm-ups, and a putting contest for a filled beer fridge.
“We’re delighted at the response to our tournament, and know that the member and guest experience and interaction with members and the golf course will make it a safe day, and a great day of networking, fun, and an end-of-season chance to get outside and show some local love for our merchants, sponsors and The Harvest,” says Dan Rogers, Executive Director of the Chamber.
“We’ll all be out on the course for the full day, and truly look forward to welcoming so many of our members and their guests after a long summer of only seeing them on virtual meetings. Our staff, and the staff at the Harvest, will be helping everyone have a safe day on the links.”
“While there is no banquet this year, we will have a virtual wrap-up celebration on September 18th, where our Presenting Sponsor, Parke Pacific Projects, will award all the prizes. We thank all our members who are supporting this event, and can’t wait for sunshine and long drives on Thursday, September 17.”
