Golfers enjoyed a nice day on the links last week at the annual Dawson County Chamber of Commerce golf tournament.


Chamber President Linda Williams said the 56 players who participated “had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect. It’s what we call a chamber of commerce kind of day,” Williams said.


One of several fundraisers for the chamber of commerce, the tournament netted $5,000 for the organization this year. “We appreciate all the support from our sponsors, team players and our many volunteers,” she said.


“We could not put on such an event without the manpower of all our volunteers.”


Williams said the tournament, which has been held for more than 10 years, is “a chance to spend the day with business associates and friends and support the chamber in the meantime.”


She added that the event, which was held Nov. 16 at Chestatee Golf Club, is popular because “people enjoy the competitiveness of it.”


First place gross went to the Premier Landscape team: Taylor Wallace, Chris Gaines, Dwayne Jones and Blake Palmer. Second Place gross was First Citizens Bank of Georgia: Charles Buckner, Allan Depoe, Bryan Hendricks and Todd Buckner.


First place net was won by Northside Hospital-Forsyth: Andy Brown, Patricia Randolph, Freda Hardage and David Vandyke. Second place went to the Chestatee State Bank team: Henry Hamilton, Larry Minogue, Jason DeJiacomo and Jarod Trammel.
