CCGM Golf Classic Has New Theme


From: jo Schmeiser CCGM Executive Director

This winter hasn’t been as bad as it could be, however I’m sure you’re as ready for spring as the 2011 Chamber of Commerce for Greater Milford Golf Classic Committee is. 

Along with spring comes the annual CCGM Golf Classic, and always a great time rain or shine.

Deanna Smith, 2011 CCGM Golf Classic Chair, says the committee voted to drop the cost of the annual tournament to go along with the new theme “4 for 4 for Fooouuurrr”.  In the past the foursome fee was $500.00.  This year the cost is only $400.00 for the 4 Player Scramble.  The $400.00 fee includes green fees, carts, use of practice range, 2 Complimentary Mulligans, Beer & other beverages, a BBQ Lunch, goodie bag, dinner buffet, contests and prizes.  Deanna says a lot of tournaments charge for mulligans, beer and usually only serve one meal, however at the CCGM tournament everything is included.   She says at the CCGM Golf Classic golfers definitely get what they pay for, all while enjoying a wonderful day on the golf course with friends and colleagues.

In addition to everything else included in the tournament, i.g. Burton will offer a new vehicle for the lucky golfer that gets a hole-in-one.  The vehicle hasn’t been determined yet, however you can expect a beauty from Chevrolet, Chrysler, Jeep, BMW or Mercedes-Benz.

You don’t have to be a member of the chamber to golf, and both individuals and teams are welcome.  We especially recommend golfing if you are female, as we don’t usually have as many women golfing as we do men, and the odds are pretty good that you’ll win a prize.

If you’re interested in golfing, contact George Clendaniel at 272.2223.


Speaking of prizes, if you want to participate in the Ball Drop, balls are only $5.00, and if your ball falls closest to the pin you’ll win $150.00.  For this contest there are only three-hundred balls sold and you do not have to be present to win.

If you’re interested in purchasing a ball, or want more information about the Ball Drop contact John Shevock (Bayhealth Medical Center) at 674.4401.

If you are unable to golf yet would like to gain exposure for your business, several sponsorship opportunities are available.  The Dinner, Golf Cart and Beverage Cart Sponsorships are available for $1000.00 and each include a foursome.  If you’re interested in being a Driving Range, Lunch or Ball Drop Sponsor the cost is $250.00.  If you’d like to be a Snack or Tee/Green Sponsor the cost is only $150.00.  A Friend of the Chamber Sponsorship is $50.00. Lank, Johnson & Tull, CPA’s are sponsoring the Putting Contest again this year.

If you are a sponsor and would like to donate goodie bag items, the committee asks for at least 100 of each item you donate.  Donations can be anything from a pen to a hat and every golfer and volunteer will see your company name.

The 18th Annual Golf Classic is being held Friday May 6th at the Shawnee Country Club.  Registration for the tournament begins at noon and the shot-gun start is at 1:00 p.m.
