Chamber ready for another golf outing

Executive Director of the Orchard Park Chamber of Commerce

A pinging sound can be heard as the iron connects with the small white ball and sends it sailing high in the air on its way to the green. It’s golf season again, and as the leaves appear on the trees and the temperature rises, thoughts of golfers everywhere turn to the golf course and the familiar cry of “fore.”

Most of us have driven by the well-manicured grounds of the Orchard Park Country Club and admired the beautiful flowers and attractive landscaping. But if you are not a member of the club, you may not have had the opportunity to play its challenging course. If that is something you’ve wanted to experience, the Chamber has just the event for you.

We will host our 26th annual golf outing on Monday, June 5, at Orchard Park Country Club. This outing is open to everyone, regardless of your skill level.

The outing features a scramble format, ensuring an enjoyable day for every level of golfer. Registration and lunch begin at 11 a.m. Eckl’s will serve several of its taste-tempting specialties for lunch on the patio. There is a noon shotgun start, and throughout play, you will have the opportunity to win valuable prizes by participating in a number of contests, including: longest drive on the 11th hole; closest to the pin on holes 2, 6 and 16; and holes-in-one on all four of the par-three holes. If you can sink a hole-in-one on the second hole, you’ll win $10,000, courtesy of Capital Management Group of Niagara.

Following golf, you’ll enjoy a premium open bar, a fantastic dinner and an awards presentation. Also included are an on-course hospitality area, chair massages and beverage service throughout play. Numerous great prizes will add to the fun of the outing. Bring your friends, and join us on this challenging course. Individual golfers are welcome as well. You don’t need to have a foursome to register. The cost to participate is $225 per person. Don’t delay, as the field, which is limited to 132 golfers, is filling quickly. The registration form can be downloaded from our website, www.OrchardParkChamber.org, or you can call the Chamber office at 662-3366 to register.

The outing is presented by the Chamber in conjunction with our silver sponsor Constellation Energy Services along with: Bank on Buffalo; Bartercard; Buffalo Cigars; Capital Management Group of Niagara; clevermethod; Client Solutions Group; Eckl’s; Financial Trust Federal Credit Union; The Jeweler’s Studio; Mentholatum; The OP Social Tap & Grill; Pedego; Southtowns Wine & Liquor; Towne Auto Group; and VSP Marketing Graphic Group. Recognition also goes out to Amigone Funeral Home; Community Bank NA; Great Erie Federal Credit Union; NYCM Insurance; Salerno Motors; SPoT Coffee Orchard Park; Ventura’s Carstar Collision; and West Herr Auto Group.

I hope you’ll join us for this great round of golf, delicious food and prizes galore. Best wishes for a golf season filled with birdies and eagles.
