TACOMA, Wash. – The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber will welcome close to 140 golfers on Thursday, May 30, to the Tacoma Country & Golf Club, 13204 Country Club Drive SW, Lakewood, Wash. 98498, for a day of fun and spirited competition at the Simpson/Rainier Connect Chamber Golf Classic Tournament.
The Simpson/Rainier Connect Chamber Golf Classic is considered the best social event of the year and it would not be possible without all of the sponsors and their willingness to not only financially contribute to the Chamber, but also participate at a level that makes this event so successful. Special thanks to Co-Presenting Sponsors Simpson and Rainier Connect, Eagle Box Lunch Sponsor Brown & Brown of WA, Umbrella Sponsor Heritage Bank, Golf Cart Sponsor Franciscan Health System Occupational Health/Port Clinic and Tournament of Champions Award Banquet Sponsor Larson Automotive Group for their most generous commitment to the tournament.
