Chamber to host annual Golf Tournament, ‘Ball Drop’


Golfers are invited to mark their calendars for the annual Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament supporting Junior Golf at the Canyon Lake Golf Course on Saturday, May 20. This event is open to the public.

Registration is $100 per player; Canyon Lake Golf Course members pay only $65. Registration includes rounds of golf, golf cart fee and dinner. The cost to attend dinner only is $25.

Completed registration form and payment should be made payable to the Chamber and mailed to the Chamber of Commerce mailing address 31566 Railroad Canyon Rd., Canyon Lake, CA. 92587. Participants also may sign up at the Golf Pro Shop at the Golf Course and at Pack, Wrap and Post in the Towne Center.

The tournament begins at 10 a.m. with registration followed by special contests, shot gun start at noon, first annual Ball Drop, dinner, awards and raffles.

This year’s tournament registration form has three flights: Open, Senior (60+ all participants) and Jack & Jill (2 women, 2 men).

Sponsorship opportunities are available by sponsoring a tee, special contest or donating a gift basket for the raffle.

The Chamber’s first annual Ball Drop will take place after the tournament. Participants don’t have to be a golfer to participate and winners need not be present to win.

Golf ball “numbers” may be purchased for $10 each. Each ball purchaser provides their contact information and gets a number for a golf ball; not the actual ball.

Using a mechanical lift, the hopper filled with the numbered golf balls will be lifted and dropped all at once over a hole (cup) on the Practice Range. The purchaser of the numbered ball that lands in the bottom of the cup will receive half the money collected from the golf ball sales, up to $5,000.

Numbers for the Ball Drop may be purchased at Pack, Wrap and Post, Country Club and Chamber office. A limited number of balls are available.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Canyon Lake Jr. Golf Program. In attendance will be Gabe Hrab, the PGA pro who stated the Jr. Golf Program in 1980.
