Inver Grove Heights/South Saint Paul – The River Heights Chamber of Commerce invites the community to golf in the Chamber’s Annual Golf Classic fundraiser presented by Waterous Company on Tuesday, August 18th at Southview Country Club, 239 E. Mendota Road, West St. Paul.
August 18 is a new date, yet, we are looking forward to the same great fun the Golf Classic brings every year. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with a breakfast-to-go pickup available for all golfers. For your convenience, passports are included in this year’s registration price and include one mulligan, one gimmie string and entry into both the putting and the chipping contests. The driving range is open for practice and shot-gun start for teams is at 10:00 a.m.
There will be many fun contests on the course, and a ball drop and boxed lunch following the day’s play that may be enjoyed on the patio or to-go. Due to current health considerations and course guidelines in compliance with State regulations for COVID-19, all golfers are to adhere to all safety and social distancing guidelines. Two golfers may ride in a cart (there is a plastic barrier in place between passengers). In addition, there will not be an awards banquet dinner; results of the tournament will be emailed to golfers the day following the event. Team photos will be taken on the course and shared in Chamber communications and social media following the event.
“Seeing people face-to-face is exactly the kind of change of pace I think many people are craving right now, and participating in the Golf Tournament is the chance to do that in a place that is safe, outside, supporting an area business and supporting the Chamber of Commerce,” says Chairman of the Board, Adam Bengtson. One of the most fun parts of the day is networking with the sponsors who sit at each hole on the course. “It’s always fun to see what unique events our sponsors come up with,” notes Michele Hein of Tandem Printing, Golf Task Force Chair.
Register yourself or your foursome to golf at the Early Bird rate of $175/golfer (before August 3) or $200 after.
