“The Masters” Earns the Chamber a Hole-in-One

New Lenox, IL (August 19, 2014) — The New Lenox Chamber of Commerce Annual Golf Outing teed off on Friday, August 15 at The Sanctuary Golf Course. The Chamber welcomed 136 golfers to this year’s Masters themed scramble.

“We were thrilled with the turnout!” said Emily Johnson, Chamber CEO. “We had so many area businesses participate in one way or another through sponsorship or as golfers.”

On the course, golfers were greeted by various hole sponsors, won raffle tickets at the Chamber’s betting hole and spin-the-wheel, and networked with one another while enjoying the gorgeous weather! Following golf, foursomes and guests enjoyed a delicious pork chop dinner while the winning teams were announced, raffle prizes were drawn and the New Lenox Fire Protection Department took the Chamber CEO, Emily Johnson, up in the air for the ball drop!

“The Golf Committee really out did themselves this year. Their hard work and enthusiasm created a fun and exciting outing,” continued Ms. Johnson.
