Lake Norman Chamber’s Fall Captain’s Choice Classic – Oct 15th at River Run

Another year has passed and it is again time for the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Annual Golf Tournament.  This year is building up to be one of the best outings we have ever hosted.  We will be holding the tournament on October 15th at River Run Country Club and are expecting a full field of participants.  This private course is currently getting a make-over.  All of the greens are being replaced and the sand-traps and bunkers are being reshaped and worked over as well.  Renovations will be completed at the end of September so the course should be in outstanding shape for the tournament. 

It will again be a captain’s choice event with an 11 am shotgun start, but this year we have added multiple contests to give the players more opportunities to walk away with some great prizes.  “Our past tournaments have been great so this year we challenged ourselves to host a tournament that will be truly exceptional”, said Mike Russell Chairman of the Chamber Golf Tournament.  “We wanted to pack as much value as possible into this event and I think we’ve accomplished that.”  Some of the enhancements are a $20,000 Putting Contest, sponsored by Wells Fargo, and a $5,000 Chipping Contest, sponsored by BB&T Bank in Davidson.  This year every player will get a chance to participate in these contests for no additional charge.  There will also be two (2) Hole-in-one contests this year with the prizes being a trip to the 2013 ESPY Awards and a trip to the 2013 Masters.

The Chamber has added all of these new prize opportunities and more to the event while lowering the player costs.  Individuals can register for $140 and foursomes are $560.  For this the players get a round of golf with cart, box lunch on the course and dinner after the round.  They also will receive a golf shirt complements of McIntosh Law Firm, 2 sleeves of golf balls courtesy of Piedmont Natural Gas and National Financial Services Group and a 3-day resort travel voucher without a timeshare presentation requirement valued at $600.

The value isn’t limited to just the players.  To recognize and thank each of the sponsors for helping us put this event together, every sponsor will receive a Pin Flag with their logo on it.  Sponsorships are still available.  To register as a player or become a sponsor, contact Brett Zabek ( at the Lake Norman Chamber.
