TACOMA – On Thursday, May 30, the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber held their annual Simpson/Rainier Connect Golf Classic at the Tacoma Country & Golf Club in Lakewood.
From a pre-tournament party (sponsored by Courtyard by Marriott) to high quality golf umbrellas (sponsored by Heritage Bank), this year’s Chamber Golf Classic was memorable. The field of 133 golfers, over 30 volunteers and Chamber staff, made this event fun.
On the 6,686 yard green, 33 teams competed for the title of tournament champion. At the conclusion, Michelle Roberts, Steve O’Brien, James Whitacre and Jonny McMaster triumphed with the title of the 1st Place Team Winner. Congratulations to the team members of LeMay Mobile Shredding. The lucky winning foursome received a Grand Prize donated by Hotel Murano – a Four-Star Overnight Package that includes a Chef’s Table for four couples. Congratulations are also in order for “Best Hole” winner Adriatic Grill, Italian Cuisine & Wine Bar whose signature cocktail, beach lounge chairs and good hospitality made it a crowd favorite.
The Chamber would like to thank all of its sponsors including Co-Presenting Sponsors Simpson and Rainier Connect, Eagle Box Lunch Sponsor Brown & Brown of WA, 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. Their support assured the success of this popular event.
