Ponoka chamber’s first golf tournament a success

Some local business people got out on the green at the Ponoka Golf Club on July 9 during the Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce’s first ever golf tournament.

The 12 teams that participated, all chamber members from a wide range of businesses, enjoyed nine holes of golf, and a drink from the Peppered Elk.

“I think it went really well,” said chamber executive manager Heather Bendera.

The event aimed to allow people to get together as the province starts to come out of COVID-19 and restrictions have been lifted.

“It was beautiful weather, we had a great turnout and everybody seemed to have a lot of fun,” said Bendera.

“We’re looking forward to things getting back to normal.”

The poker game winner was Central Veterinary Clinic’s team. No one won the $25,000 hole-in-one prize sponsored by Battle River Insurance.

The title sponsor for the golf tournament was Heartland Feeds.

Premier Jason Kenney is scheduled to speak to chamber members at the golf club on July 22. The event starts with dinner at 6:30 p.m.

Kenney will be speaking, starting at 7 p.m., on small business. Those interested can contact the chamber for more information.
