On September 27, 2019, “Chamber of Commerce weather” greeted the players at the sold out 2019 Salisbury Area Chamber Golf Classic, held at Green Hill Country Club in Quantico, MD.
Players enjoyed delicious breakfast sandwiches from Kellyn’s Kafe, courtesy of Gallagher Insurance to start the day. The traditional tournament kickoff, sponsored by WBOC, took place on the driving range with a 50/50 Ball Drop Raffle, where balls dropped by helicopter. Players purchased super mulligan packages that included three chances to win the 50/50 raffle if their ball fell closest to the pin. This year’s 50/50 raffle, won by Bill Pettit of Allen & Shariff, was graciously donated back to benefit the Wor-Wic Scholarship Fund.
The teams played a scramble format and were entertained on course by fifteen interactive hole sponsors offering snacks, drinks, and contests during the tournament.
The Tournament Champions in the gross division were the team from Pohanka Automotive Group. The Davis Abstracts team finished first in the net division.
Special thanks all of this year’s sponsors, including Brian Spicer and Spicer Brothers Construction, for their third year as Platinum Sponsor. Gold Sponsors included BBSI Salisbury, Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive, Avery Hall Insurance Group, Peninsula Regional Medical Center, WBOC TV 16, Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., and The Insurance Market.
Always a supporter of the Chamber, Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive was once again the Hole-In-One sponsor. CQI Associates, the Chamber’s Energy Co-op provider, sponsored the awards luncheon and Eastern Shore Distributing and Pepsi provided beverages.
The 2020 Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic will be at the River Marsh Golf Club at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MD. For more information about sponsoring or participating in next year’s event, please contact LeVita Bragdon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
