Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce to hold annual Golf Classic

The Salisbury Area Chamber Golf Classic will be held on Sept. 27 at Green Hill Country Club in Quantico, Md. The tournament is the premier Chamber networking event of the year, as business and community leaders from all over Delmarva gather for a tournament truly like no other.

This year’s tournament is presented by Spicer Bros. Construction.

Members can sponsor “interactive holes”, granting an opportunity to showcase and promote their business in a fun, creative, dynamic way. The options are endless: signature cocktails, games, signage, tables, tents, small competitions, and more. Sponsorship at all levels also includes promotion through Chamber marketing outlets.

Registration (in foursomes) includes greens fees, golf cart fees, breakfast, beverages, a goody bag, and range balls.

After 18 holes of fun, players are given prizes at the Awards Luncheon. Teams also receive group photographs after the event.

All participants in past years have said this tournament is unique, enjoyable, and a great opportunity to visit with old colleagues and make new connections.

You may even win a hole in one prize, as one lucky player did last year!

Registration and Sponsorship forms are available at or you can contact LeVita Bragdon at 410-749-0144 or email
