FORSYTH COUNTY — Get ready to enjoy some networking on the greens.

The Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce will present its annual golf tournament Sept. 22 at Windermere Golf Club, 5000 Davis Love Drive.

Check-in begins at 9 a.m., with a shotgun start at 10 a.m.

Laura Stewart, director of communications and events for the chamber, said the tournament, now in its 27thyear, is always a big hit.

“Last year, we came very close to filling up all the slots available, so this year I’m encouraging anyone who wants to take part to register early,” she said.

Cost to participate in the tournament is $200 for an individual player or $800 for a foursome.

The tournament, presented by title sponsor Northside Hospital-Forsyth, will feature a hole-in-one contest, with a car donated by RMB of Alpharetta on McFarland Highway.

Stewart said there will also be contests for longest drive and closest to the pin.

Box lunches will be provided to all participants and there will be a dinner and awards presentation after the tournament concludes.

Stewart said there are also some volunteer opportunities available for those who want to help out.

“I’ve had a lot of people already volunteer to help during the morning hours,” Stewart said, “so I could really use more help later in the day during the hours after lunch.”

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Stewart directly at LStewart@cummingforsythchamber.org or by calling (770) 887-6461.

Those wishing to register to play in the tournament should register at www.cummingforsythchamber.org.

Stewart said she’s looking forward to keeping the tradition of a successful golf tournament going.

“It’s a great day of networking, but in a very relaxed and fun setting,” she said. “People just need to remember to register early because this event does usually fill up quickly.”
