Annual chamber golf tournament scheduled for April 18

(Carmen Rodgers) Despite heavy rain during last year's golf tournament, there was a great turnout for the annual event. The Tallassee Chamber of Commerce is hoping Mother Nature will deliver blue skies and sunshine during this year's tournament, which is set for April 18th.


The Tallassee Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual golf tournament on

April 18 at Wynlakes Country Club.

Registration is at 11 a.m. and tee times begin at 12:30 p.m. for one of the longest-running fundraisers hosted by the chamber.

“This is our only true fundraiser of the year,” chamber director Jerry Cunningham said. “Funds from this golf tournament help support community events and other community-oriented activities that the chamber sponsors throughout the year.”

The four-man scramble will be scored by handicap.

Many consider Wynlakes to be one of the best courses in the state. It has 14 lakes and large oak trees canvased with Spanish moss. The course also has beautifully trimmed fairways and greens, colorful landscaping and cleverly placed fountains and bridges throughout.

Cash awards will be given to the top two teams.

“Each par-3 hole will present an opportunity to win a prize including one opportunity to win a new car with a hole-in-one for the respective hole,” Cunningham said. “There will be some really great prizes this year.”

The entry fee will include lunch, snacks and drinks during the round, door prize and a sleeve of golf balls.

The chamber is also seeking sponsors for the event.
