The sign-up deadline for one of Forsyth’s longest standing golf tournaments has been extended.
Lindsey Nelson, director of communications and events, said the Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce’s 24th Annual Membership Golf Challenge will be Oct. 3.
The original registration deadline was set for Friday, but she said the cutoff has been extended to Sept. 29 or until all 156 spots are sold.
"We are at almost 100 golfers, so we’ll continue to accept registrations," Nelson said.
Proceeds from the tournament go to various chamber programs and events throughout the year aimed at helping attract and expand business in Forsyth County.
Nelson said those interested in playing can register online or call the chamber.
The registration fee is $150 per person or $500 for a team of four, and includes green fees, cart rental, lunch, beverages, arrival gift and awards reception.
A package of four mulligans can also be purchased for an additional $40.
"All golfers are encouraged to pay prior to the tournament as payment secures their spot," Nelson said.
The tournament’s grand prize will be a foursome at Windermere Golf and Country Club. Prizes will also be awarded for longest drive and closest to the pin, as well as a putting contest.
Nelson said RBM-North Mercedes dealership will also be giving away a car to anyone who makes a hole in one on the course’s 11th hole.
Nelson encouraged anyone interested in making business contacts while having fun to attend.
"The chamber’s golf tournament has always been known as the prime golf tournament in the community," she said. "There are many key decision makers that play … and this is a great way to network in a relaxed atmosphere and of course have some fun."
