Delaware Area Chamber Annual Golf Outing
A quintessential golf outing held in June when the weather is still cool, this is one of our most popular annual events. Bring some clients or reward your outstanding employees by golfing with us!
Golf Outing 2019 Re-cap
Two-and-a -half inches of rain fell just hours before the shotgun start of the 2019 Chamber golf outing at Kings Mill Golf Club on June 5th. But owner Linda Krom and her AMAZING staff cleared the course and 118 golfers didn’t bat an eye. Even with two holes unplayable and jokes of “Lake Waldo”, golfers gotta golf and the weather cleared up because, well, it never rains on a Delaware Chamber golf outing.
Back again in full support was our tournament sponsor Country Club Rehabilitation Campus; beverage cart sponsor V & P Hydraulics; Delaware Court Healthcare Center has been serving our golfers breakfast forever; and OhioHealth was once again our lunch sponsor.
And because Chamber staff has yet to perfect the art of being in several places at one time, we always have volunteers to thank who step up out on the course taking cash from our golfers on double down holes and selling 50/50 tickets. A big thank you to those awesome gals from the Friends of the Delaware County District Library Karen Cowan & Linda Silverstein; Angel Boulis, Maloney & Novotny; Amy Pinnick, Fahey Bank; Matt Farrell, Smith Feinke Minton Insurance; and Dee Ketterling.
And a very special thank you to Chamber office manager Sarah Yoakam who did all the event’s heavy lifting.
Golfers played 16 holes this year. First place team with a score of 49 was Team Fidelity Federal Savings & Loan. Second place team with a score of 52 was Team Huntington Bank. Proximity prizes went to Glen Campbell, Team V & P Hydraulics Sales, who earned Longest Putt; Tiffany Maag, Team Del-Co. Water, earned Women’s Longest Drive; Brady Dalrymple, Team 42 Storage & U-SELL took home Men’s Longest Drive; and Justin Bresler, Team Oak & Brazen Wine Co. received the award for Closest to the Pin.
And 2K General’s Andy Wyeth earned the prize in a new category called “Closest to the Chamber President”. Andy’s “FORE!!” was one of FIVE that were heard off the tee of hole 15 to where Holly was sitting on hole 16. His ball landed not 8 feet from her. Hopefully this will be a prize unique to the 2019 outing!!
And there were other prizes, as well. Emergency Plumbing Services drew for a fabulous gift basket of adult beverages and golf paraphernalia, won by Team Huntington Banks’s Dave Chapman. First Citizens National Bank gave a gift certificate to a local restaurant to Team V & P Hydraulics’ Production II Kelly Conley.
And the 50/50 winner, Mike Routte from Team Preferred Wireless, in a remarkable act of generosity, insisted on donating his $230 winnings back to the Chamber!!
And of course, several members had tables out on the course giving away everything from lip balm to Bloody Marys.
Thank you to everybody who came out to play with us, brought their clients and staff, and allowed us to pick their pockets. We appreciate the support on behalf of the membership and hope you all had as much fun as you looked like you were having. Click here for all the fun photos.
And, of course, no respectable golf outing is held without members stepping up to sponsor hole signs, goody tables at the hole, goody bag treats and prize donations. Join us in recognizing these folks:
