Despite last week being one of storms and rain, the annual Caswell County Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament made it off without out a hitch. Late in the afternoon, the sun peaked out and beautiful blue skies ended the day. The Caswell Pines Golf Club hosted the event last Thursday, May 26. With the venue under new management, the golfers enjoyed being able to use brand new golf carts and take a peak at the newly refurbished grill room. With over 70 golfers participating the players enjoyed a beautiful day as well as lots of fun and networking. Many volunteers assisted this year making the event even more fun for the golfers, Chamber members and the community.
The support of the business community for this event was great. With numerous hole sponsors and other lunch and general sponsors, the event provides funding that helps the Chamber continue to assist our businesses with education and marketing opportunities to grow the businesses and organizations in Caswell County. Event Sponsors were ACE Home and Building Center, BAR Construction Company and the Caswell Pines Golf Club. Lunch was provided by sponsor Taylor Business Products and the snack carts were sponsored by mesur.io, Thomas Brothers Oil and Propane and First Piedmont Corporation.
Bob Greear, owner of Caswell Pines Golf Club presented the winners of the tournament with their cash prizes: ACE Home & Building Center - first place, Quality Construction - second place and Taylor Business Products – third place. Door prizes were provided by several chamber members including ACE Home and Building Center, American National Bank, Caswell County Historic Association, Compassion Health Care, CoSquare, Fidelity Bank, Piedmont Triad Visitor Center, This Farm Wife, and the Chamber. Hole in one prize opportunities were provided by ACE Home and Building Center and Caswell Pines Golf Club.
This year included other ways for the players to network. Chamber member Whiskers Stitching was onsite with their tent and set up sharing their custom embroidered items for the golfers. In addition, Beetoobi IT Solutions, a chamber member from South Boston, had a tent on the 14th hole where they offered a scan of email addresses to see if participants were on the ‘dark web’. There are so many scams and privacy issues on the internet now, and Beetoobi works with their small business clients to help prevent these predators from accessing business and customer data. In fact, the team from Beetoobi will be providing a brief presentation on this at an upcoming Connecting Caswell Networking Breakfast to be held at CoSquare on Tuesday, July 19.
The Caswell County Chamber of Commerce thanks the business community, members, volunteers, staff of Caswell Pines Golf Club for all of the wonderful comraderies contributing to a successful event for the Chamber. The next Chamber of Commerce event is the June Connecting Caswell Networking Breakfast at Thomas Bothers Oil and Propane on Tuesday, June 21 at 8:00 am. The community is invited to attend this complimentary breakfast and to learn more about how Thomas Brothers continues to serve our community after 100 years of service.
