Chamber gets golfing this month

July 18, 2012 by  

The 2012 Rolling Meadows Chamber of Commerce gold outing will take place at the Fox Run Golf Links on July 27 from 7:00 am – 2:30 pm. Fees are $125 per player or $500 for a foursome, with an extra “fun and games” pack available for purchase for $50, including entries into such contests as putting and raffle tickets. Extra raffle tickets can be purchased for $10 for one, $20 for five, and $50 for twenty-five.

The fees will include 18 holes of golf, a golf cart, breakfast, lunch, and a special siesta margarita hole. The prizes that are to be raffled off are likely to have been donated by Rolling Hills Chamber members or other local businesses. Organizers of the event will no doubt be working with local printing companies to provide necessary items such as raffle tickets and sponsor banners, which will be displayed during the event. Sponsorships are available from $100 to $3,000 and those who chose to back the event will receive a variety of perks, including golf play, a company banner displayed at the event, recognition at the luncheon, and a networking list of all chamber members.

This event will also be an excellent networking opportunity for business professionals in the area, seeing as a lot of businesses is reportedly done on the golf course. The golf outing will let chamber members connect with other members who they have not yet had the opportunity to meet. While there will be no hard sell on the golf course, no doubt business cards will be exchanged.
