The Athena International Management team of Trinda Blackmore, Chaz Thomas, John Marrs and Cary Marrs claimed the first place trophy on Nov. 2 at the Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic at the North Sound Golf Club, sponsored by Provenance Properties and Kirk Freeport Ltd.
A total of 27 teams completed in a four-person scramble over the course of five hours. The teams from Kirk Freeport Ltd. (Chris and Daniel Kirkconnell, Payton Wight and Dan Bond) and Titan Development (Frank Packer, Conor McHugh, Heather Hardy and Keith Nicholson) finished in second and third place, respectively.
Mark McIntyre’s amazing hole-in-one shot on the 11th hole was a highlight of the tournament. Mr. McIntyre’s shot bounced twice before landing nicely in the hole. That shot won him a new 4-door 2018 Kia Sorento from GT Automotive.
“The Golf Classic is one of our favorite Chamber events as it allows a wide range of businesses to network and share some laughs whilst enjoying an afternoon on the golf course,” said Chamber President-elect and Kirk Freeport Vice President Christopher Kirkconnell.
“We’ve sponsored the tournament for several years and each year we enjoy ourselves even more. And with 27 teams taking part this year, it’s clear that the membership loves it too.”
There were also raffle prizes to be won, with a range of businesses donating prizes for the golfers.
“On behalf of the Council and staff, I would like to thank Provenance Properties and Kirk Freeport for serving as the Golf Classic’s platinum and diamond sponsors, as well as the many other members who helped make the tournament a success,” said President Paul Byles. “The tournament is a great networking event and a lot of fun, and I would encourage all of our partners to join us in 2019.”
