Golfers hit the greens earlier this month for the annual Dawson County Chamber of Commerce golf tournament.

Marty Williams, organizer and vice president of tourism for the chamber, said: "You couldn't ask for a better day for a round of golf."

The 11 teams that played "had a great tournament. It was a wonderful fall day at Chestatee Golf course," Williams said.

One of several fundraisers for the chamber of commerce, the Oct. 7 tournament netted more than $6,000 for the organization this year.

"Thanks to all who participated and for all our wonderful sponsors who purchased hole signs," Williams said. "And to Northside Hospital-Forsyth for sponsoring our awards dinner and North Georgia College & State University as our box lunch sponsor."

Chamber President Linda Williams said funds from the annual event support the chamber's efforts to show "Dawson County is a great place to do business.

"It's a great way to network, meet new people and get your business name in front of the public," she said.

First place gross went to the team of Taylor Wallace, Chris Gaines, Rick Palmer and Robbie Kassouf. Second place gross was Mike Kelly, James Johnson, Tony Bruno and Tom Mackay.

First place net was won by Chris Ledford, Michael Stewart, Nathan Stewart and Ricky Bennett.

Second place net went to Charles Buckner, Mike Underwood, Blake Underwood and Josh Underwood.
