Photos: Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing

The Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce thanks the event sponsors, volunteers and organizers.

A special thanks to Sherri Farley, executive director of the Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce, for providing this news release, and to Fontanez PHOTOGRAPHY for providing the photographs.

Golfers enjoyed friendly competition and camaraderie at the Chamber’s 9th annual Golf Outing on Sept. 20. Teams of volunteers, sponsors, and golf participants came together to create a fun and memorable event with games, prizes, socializing and networking, excellent food, and of course, a great day for golf!

The outing ran smoothly thanks to the Chamber employees, committee, volunteers, and the expert staff at Ralph’s Place and Blackberry Oaks Golf Course.   Golfers were treated to lunch courtesy of Lunch Sponsor, Old Second National Bank. Amid competing for awards (provided by Fox Valley Trophy), there was also a chance to win $10,000 at the hole-in-one contest sponsored by Brian Feltes & Associates. At another hole, golfers had the opportunity to golf with Chad Johansen, PGA Head Golf Professional, and win a putter donated by Blackberry Oaks.
