The Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce is preparing for its 12th Annual Golf Classic

The Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce is preparing for its 12th Annual Golf Classic.

The Golf Classic will be June 14 at Cottonwood Golf Club. The event is the Chamber’s marquee fundraiser. Funds raised by the event make up 12 percent of the Chamber’s annual operating budget.

Sponsors include the Ladysmith District Credit Union, which is the title sponsor of the event, Remax Ocean Pointe, and the Nanaimo Airport are tournament sponsors.

Registration is $125 per player and $500 per team. The event will include 18 holes of Texas Scramble golf, a hole-in-one contest, putting contest, and a buffet dinner at 6:30pm with prizes and a silent auction to follow. The dinner itself is $40 to attend for those not participating in the Golf Classic.

“It’s a whole bunch of fun, people have a pretty good time,” Mark Drysdale, manager of Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce said. “Skill level is definitely not important. You need to be wanting to have some fun and that’s about the only prerequisite.”

The Chamber is looking for more sponsors and volunteers for the event. Anyone interested in sponsorship or volunteering should contact the Chamber at: 250-245-2112.
