The Mesquite Chamber of Commerce held their 9th Annual Golf Tournament at Wolf Creek Golf Club on Saturday, August 2, 2014. The tournament was a fund raiser to generate operating capital for the Chamber.
The tournament was at full capacity with 144 players and teams on stand-by. The event was kicked off with a Shotgun Scramble at 7 a.m. Throughout the day players also competed in a Putting Contest sponsored by Farmer’s Insurance – Bill Mitchell Agency for a chance to win $5,000. Teams finishing their games were welcomed back to the club house with a lunch provided by Wolf Creek Golf Club’s Terrace Restaurant. Businesses generously purchased hole sponsor signs for the “Spot-A-Sponsor” contest and donated gifts for the Chamber Raffle.
Tournament Winners were:
- 1st Place: Farmer’s Insurance Bill Mitchell Agency Team won a round of golf at Wolf Creek Golf Club
- 2nd Place: Sun City Mesquite Group Team won a round of golf at Conestoga Golf Club
- 3rd Place: Wolf Creek Golf Club Team won a round of golf at Falcon Ridge Golf Course
- Closest to the Hole Ladies – Cindy Fox
- Closest to the Hole Men – Max Heath
- Longest Drive Men – Trent Chapman
- Longest Drive Ladies – Sheila Stephens
The Chamber also awarded an “SBL” award (Stroke of Bad Luck) for the team who came in last but had the most fun playing at the tournament.
A fundraiser at the 11th hole raised $280 for Wolf Creek’s Sports for Kids program.
The Chamber has held yearly golf tournaments for the past nine years. Without the volunteers and financial support of the Chamber members and Signature Sponsors throughout the year, events such as these would not be possible. The Mesquite Chamber of Commerce wants to thank all the players, generous sponsors, amazing volunteers, local media, Kathy Lee from View on Mesquite Magazine for photographing the event, and the professional staff at Wolf Creek Golf Club for such tremendous support at the event and during the planning stages.
