If you’re a golfer, you won’t want to miss out on the 34th Annual Chamber Golf Tournament, set for April 7 at the Sulphur Springs Country Club.
Like last year, the registration fee for a six-person scramble team is $750, with tee times at 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Our afternoon tee times are just about full, but we still have room in the morning for teams. Registration includes 12 mulligans, six meal tickets, and three carts.
We also have many sponsorship opportunities, including holes-in-one and interactive hole sponsorships, so check out our registration form online at hopkinschamber.org or drop by the office at 110 Main St.
