The Wetaskiwin Chamber of Commerce golf tournament is coming up June 15.

The Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce has a great event planned this month for members to hit the links and do some networking at the same time.

The Wetaskiwin Chamber of Commerce golf tournament returns June 15 to the Montgomery Glens Golf Club, located on Twp rd #464 noted chamber executive director Jennifer Garries.

“It’s such a beautiful course,” she said from her office May 29. “It’s fantastic.”

The tournament registration opens at 7 a.m. and a “to-go” breakfast will also be available. The golfing kicks off at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start.

“It’ll be fun,” said Garries. “We have some hole sponsors, we have some prizes, it’ll be great networking.”

Garries stated the tournament isn’t intended to be competitive, but more of a friendly event. Awarding of prizes will likely reflect this.

She stated the chamber board of directors and staff had heard feedback from the community that the tournament should return; the last time it was held was in 2015. “We wanted to try to bring it back,” said Garries. “Some of our members said they thought it would be fun to bring it back.”

Garries noted the golf tournament replaces the regular June luncheon, and reminded members there will be no meetings for the months of July and August. Chamber meetings will resume next September.

Pre-registration for the golf tournament is available by calling the chamber office at 780-352-0657 or going online at http://www.wetaskiwinchamber.com.
