The competition was tough, and the fun was abundant.  It was a great combination for the Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce’s 24th Annual Chamber Classic golf tournament on Monday, June 2.  With ideal weather conditions, golfers enjoyed a fun networking event that also provided some close final scores.

More than 80 golfers participated in the golf tournament which is an annual fund raiser with all proceeds supporting the Chamber’s work in economic growth and prosperity for our region.

Capturing first place gross was the Arkema, Inc./Sartomer team of Marilyn Hanover, Chris Petrangoli, Jerry Inman, and Steve Lindsay with a score of 53.

Second place gross winners were Jay Barker, Dale Powell, Scott Batson, and Bill Barker with a score of 56.  They were representing the team of JEB International Tobacco Co. and won on a match of cards.

The third place gross winner was the Haymore & Holland/R.J. Baldwin Insurance team of Greg Haymore, Bob Warren, Vern Cowan, and Chad Anderson.  They also shot a 56.

Fourth place gross winners were Floyd Merryman, Andrew Shimpock, Bobby Lovelace, and John Reynolds with a 57.  They were representing the Sonny Merryman, Inc. team and won on a match of cards.

Rounding out fifth place in gross score was the Paul Miller, DDS/Four Seasons Pest Control team of Paul Miller, Kwang Kim, Ramsey Yeatts, and John Adkins.  They also shot a 57.

Steven Lindsay won the closest to the pin contest, sponsored by Peace Haven Personal Care Services.

While Retail Merchants Association challenged golfers to a $10,000 prize for a hole-in-one on hole #10 and Ben David Jewelers donated a one carat diamond for a hole-in-one on hole #16, no lucky golfer was able to find the perfect shot to win either the cash or the diamond.

A drawing was also held for prizes that included a Taylor Made SLDR driver courtesy of First Citizens Bank, a Men’s Citizen Eco-Drive watch courtesy of Ben David Jewelers, a golf bag courtesy of Coca-Cola Bottling, green fees for four at the Westlake Country Club and green fees for four at the Waterfront Country Club courtesy of The Willard Companies.

Solex Architecture sponsored a drawing for a gift basket from Vintages by the Dan and a gift card to Golden Leaf Bistro.  Averett University provided team photos with the Averett Cougars for every player.

“This year’s Chamber Classic golf tournament was a tremendous success,” commented Brian Finney, chairman of the Chamber Classic Golf Committee.  “Our golfers had a great time and commented that this was the one of the best tournaments they’ve ever competed in.”

“We appreciate the outstanding support from Chamber members and affiliated businesses for this year’s tournament. We also appreciate their year-round support of the Chamber as we strive to increase the profitability and success of our local business community,” stated Finney.

Lunch sponsors for this year’s tournament were First Piedmont Corporation and Virginia Bank & Trust.  Reception sponsors were Barkhouser Ford Lincoln, Centra, Danville Distributing Company, and Danville Regional Medical Center.

The Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce is a business organization with approximately 700 members in the Danville/Pittsylvania County region.  The Chamber works to energize the region by creating exceptional business growth and profitability in a vibrant, customer-centered culture.
