Salisbury, MD – The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce held the 4th Annual Ladies and Mixed Team 9 Hole Golf Challenge on Thursday, March 30, 2023, at Green Hill Country Club in Quantico, MD. Pohanka of Salisbury presented this year’s tournament.

The event began in 2020 as a fun, no-pressure event for women business professionals to learn about golf and its benefits as a networking business tool. The Chamber encourages ladies that have never played golf to play, allows groups to share clubs, and creates an atmosphere that is not competitive (or intimidating!) The event is genuinely “Fun-For-Everyone” and has drawn new players yearly.

The first tournament began with just five foursomes. The event has grown to a sold-out event with ninety players, using both nine-hole layouts at Green Hill Country Club. Sponsors Trashforce and Visiting Angels provided even more fun with the newly added interactive holes.

The event started with a welcome from Wicomico County Executive Julie Giordano and a 3:30 tee-off. Players gathered afterward for an awards reception in the clubhouse, sponsored by Maryland Broadband Cooperative, Trashforce, and Visiting Angels, and beverages sponsored by BBSI, GiveSendGo, Minuteman Press, Veronica James, REALTOR®, and Phirst Physical Therapy.

Thank you, team sponsors Avery Hall Insurance, Coastal Baths, Homes4Hope, sponsors and SACC members that provided give aways and snack bag filled with goodies, and to Steven Bergman of SB Studios for providing photography.
