27th Annual Golf Classic
The Burke County Chamber of Commerce is excited to hit the ground running in 2022 by bettering business and building community through several upcoming events, including the 27th Annual Chamber Golf Classic! The tournament will be held on May 26th at Mimosa Hills Country Club. The event will be a hit thanks to the help of the wonderful golf planning committee, board of directors, ambassadors, and most importantly, the Chamber members.
The goal is to engage not only participants in this event, but businesses and people throughout the entire community. In this effort, we have two exciting bonus events that are open to the public, which are the 50/50 Ball Drop and Fantasy Card events. Ball Drop tickets are $20 each and can be purchased online at the Chamber of Commerce website (burkecountychamber.org), from one of the many board members or Ambassadors of the Chamber, or by stopping in the Chamber of Commerce office at 110 East Meeting Street in Morganton. The Ball Drop is always a big hit, as it brings a new and exciting twist to your typical golf contest, and allows nongolfers to participate as well. This event, sponsored by Chamber of Commerce member Limbwalkers Tree and Crane Services, is exactly what it sounds like! Owner of Limbwalkers, Kaleb Nicholson, will take all 550 balls that have been purchased up in his crane above the chosen green and drop them all at one time onto the green. Whichever ball goes in the hole or is closest to the pin wins half of the pot from the ticket sales! Tickets will sell fast, so we encourage everyone to get their tickets now before they are all gone!
Another way to get involved in the event is by purchasing $10 Fantasy Cards. Fantasy cards allow players to choose, like a lottery scratch off, which 9 holes they would like to scratch off, and all of those cards will be submitted back to the Chamber of Commerce to calculate the scores. The winner of the fantasy round will receive a special prize from one of the Chamber members. This will be an exciting and fun way for all of the community members to participate in the 27th Annual Chamber Golf Classic.
Community members and businesses across Burke County all serve a unique purpose. The Burke County Chamber of Commerce is honored to act as a bridge between businesses and the community, and will continue working to foster a strong commitment to one another that will live on for many more tomorrows. The Burke County Chamber of Commerce is Building Business, Building Community!
