The Orillia District Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Chamber Classic Golf Tournament on September 14, 2021 at the stunning Braestone Club. The tournament serves as both an important fundraiser for the Chamber and a safe way for participants to connect and network.
“While many in-person networking events have been postponed or cancelled due to COVID, the golf tournament is a chance to reconnect with some contacts while participating in a safe and physically distanced setting,” says Scott Walker, Investment Advisor, BMO Nesbit Burns and Chair of the 2021 Chamber Classic Golf Tournament.
Great Day of Golf
“Braestone is a great course with beautiful greens and luxurious amenities,” explains Scott. “This will be a fantastic opportunity to get out for a great day of golfing before the summer weather is gone.”
The tournament format is a 4-man scramble. Golfers can either register their own foursome or register individually and be matched with a foursome. Tee times for the Chamber Classic Golf Tournament are between 10:00 am and noon and organizers will try to accommodate tee time preferences.
Not only can participants enjoy a great day of golf at the gorgeous Braestone Club, but they also have a chance to win some great prizes.
Best Western Plus Marisposa and Champlain Waterfront Hotel have sponsored gift certificates for local mini getaways and Downey Tornosky Lassaline & Timpano Law have sponsored the longest drive and closest to the pin challenges as well as the putting contest. Scott has offered up an impressive trip to The Masters as the hole-in-one contest prize. Each participant also receives a swag bag.
Raising Funds for a Good Cause
The Chamber is a non-profit organization that serves Orillia, Severn, Oro-Medonte, Rama, and Ramara. Their main goals include promoting the local economy and business advocacy.
Proceeds from the Chamber Classic Golf Tournament support Orillia District Chamber of Commerce’s activities and initiatives like the Orillia Santa Claus Parade and the Orillia Perch Festival.
“Over the past year, the Chamber has helped local businesses navigate the pandemic by organizing community updates with government and hospital officials, distributing PPE, and providing businesses with free rapid antigen tests through the Provincial Antigen Screening Program,” explains Scott. “These types of initiatives are funded through member dues and fundraisers like the Chamber Classic Golf Tournament.”
Tickets to the Chamber Classic Golf Tournament include 18 holes, cart, a swag bag, and a barbecue lunch. To claim your spot or for more information, check out the event website, call the Chamber office at (705) 326-4424, or email their helpful staff.
