The Farmington Regional Chamber hosted its eleventh annual golf tournament at Crown Pointe Golf Club this past Friday, July 15.
The golf tournament is a perfect opportunity for those in the business community to meet new contacts or treat their vendors or employees to a day of fun.
“We had a very successful day thanks to our volunteers, participants and our presenting sponsor, First Bank,” said Becky Thompson, vice chair of the Farmington Regional Chamber.
Funds from the tournament support the chamber’s year-round work which includes initiatives such as business recruitment, job creation and enhancing children’s education by connecting businesses to schools.
Twenty-three teams competed in the tournament. In championship flight, Ricoh took first place, Madison County Chiropractic took second place and Startek took third place.
In “A” flight, Precision Eye Care took first place, AT&T took second place and St. Francois County Board for the Developmentally Disabled took third place.
Skins winners include Ricoh, Hub’s Pub, and Mike Miller for State Representative. Mike Rowden made the longest putt of the day, Les Semar made it closest to the pin, and Brad Thielemier and Dawn Komar won the longest drive competition.
The Farmington Regional Chamber is an independent association of businesses and individuals standing together to grow a stronger regional economy through legislative action, economic improvement, community development and member support.
