See Who Won At The 27th Annual Spring Golf Tournament!

May 24, 2017 | Posted By: Connor Watkins

The Country Club of Lexington was taken over by Lexington business professionals for the 27th Annual Spring Golf Tournament Monday. Winners announced at the end of this blog!

The morning began with clear skies as teams registered and met for breakfast. Once they picked up their Chamber visors and SEFA Group golf tees, players mounted their carts and were off for their first tee.

Businesses like Southern Siding & Window Company and Southern Dreams Realty were ready to meet players and had creative ways of entertaining and helping them learn more about their business with games like a marshmallow driving contest. 



Others worked together with fellow members to make their tents the place to stop. “Southern Visions Real Estate is a locally owned business of nearly 32 years in Lexington and attributes much of our success to partnerships and relationships,” said Amy DeVore, marketing and administration coordinator with Southern Visions Real Estate. “Partnering with Hollow Creek Distillery for this event allowed us to support and promote a great local business located in a growing area of Lexington County, and have lots of fun sharing tasty samples of Moonshine and Whiskey from their product line.”

Budget Blinds of Lexington/Chapin, Mosquito Joe of Lake Murray and Wellmore of Lexington travelled the course throughout the day making sure teams always had cold beverages to keep them on their A game.

US Foods, Comporium and NBSC were ready with lunch as players from the morning tee times finished their last putts and the afternoon tee times started registration.

As the afternoon teams made their way through the course, so did the rain. After players and hole/tee sponsors got back to the clubhouse and dried off, they enjoyed a warm dinner from Salsarita’s and cold drinks thanks to Cayce Exterminating.
