Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Holds 5th Annual Ladies & Mixed Team 9 Hole Golf Challenge

1st Place team in a ladies golf tournament

Salisbury, MD – The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce held the 5th Annual Ladies and Mixed Team 9 Hole Golf Challenge on Thursday, May 15, 2024, at Green Hill Country Club in Quantico, MD. Pohanka of Salisbury and CareFirst 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 using both nine-hole layouts at Green Hill Country Club. 

The event started with a welcome from Wicomico County Executive Julie Giordano, Stephanie Kearney of CareFirst, and Alyssa Sinagra and Mary Mengason of Avery Hall Insurance. 

To add to the day’s fun, Reception Sponsor Spicer Bros. Construction greeted players at an interactive hole and players tried their luck at the Putting Green Contest, sponsored by BBSI Salisbury. Tony Nichols gave expert tips on how to make the lengthy putt, and Matt Thompson of the CareFirst team took home the grand prize!

Players dodged the rain long enough to finish nine holes, gathering afterwards for an awards reception sponsored by Avery Hall Insurance Group, Spicer Bros. Construction, and TidalHealth. Beverages sponsored by Jo Jo’s Family Restaurant and Minuteman Press.

Team sponsors included BBSI, Coastal Bath Company, Comcast Business, Deeley Insurance Group, M&T Bank, PKS & Company, PA, Scaffold Resource, The Insurance Market, and Veronica James, REALTOR – ERA Martin Associates.
