Chamber to host Golf Tournament, Ball Drop


The Canyon Lake Chamber invites the community to participate in its annual Golf Tournament and Ball Drop on Saturday, May 19. A portion of the proceeds will go toward the Canyon Lake Jr. Golf program. The entry fee is $100 per player. Canyon Lake annual golf course members pay only $65. Registration includes round of golf, golf cart fee and dinner. The who wish to attend dinner only may do so for a cost of $25.

Registration starts at 10 a.m.; Shotgun start at 12 p.m. This year’s tournament has three flights: Open, Senior (60 years of age and older) and Jack & Jill (two women and two men).

Sponsorship is available in the form of tee sponsorship, item donation for opportunity drawing and business and corporate sponsorship.

The tournament will be followed by the Ball Drop, dinner, awards and opportunity drawing. Ball Drop participants do not have to enter the golf tournament to participate and winners need not be present to win.

How does the Ball Drop work? Golf ball “numbers” are purchased for $10 each. The purchaser provides their contact information and receives one number per ball; not the actual golf ball.

Using a mechanical lift, the hopper filled with the numbered golf balls are lifted and dropped all at once over a hole on the practice range. The purchaser of the numbered ball that lands in the bottom of the hole will receive half the money collected from the Ball Drop sales, up to $5,000.

Golf ball numbers are available now at the Golf Pro Shop at the country club and at Pack, Wrap and Post and the chamber’s office in the Towne Center. A limited number of balls are available.
