Chamber gets ready to hold 42nd annual golf outing

GROSSE ILE — A limited number of openings remain for the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber’s annual golf outing, scheduled for a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start June 14 at the Grosse Ile Golf & Country Club, 9339 Bellevue, at the corner of Meridian and Parkway.

The $175 registration fee includes a buffet lunch, 18 holes of golf and dinner afterward. This is the 42nd year the chamber has held the outing, making it the organization’s long-running event.

Organizers say the outing is a perennial favorite among both chamber members and nonmembers, largely due to the stellar reputation of the country club’s Donald Ross-designed course. Ross is perhaps best known for his work on the Pinehurst Golf Complex in North Carolina.

The Grosse Ile course debuted in 1919, one of more than 400 courses he either designed or redesigned during his 50-year career as the country’s foremost golf course architect.

The SWCRC event begins with registration at 10:30 a.m. Lunch will be served at 11:15. Refreshments will be available on the course throughout the outing, which will be played in a Texas scramble format. The day will conclude in the country club’s main dining room with a cash bar opening at 6 p.m., followed by dinner.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available as well, including hole sponsorships for $300 and $500. Sponsors receive signage and have additional marketing opportunities at the event.

To register for the outing or inquire about sponsorships, call the chamber office at (734) 284-6000.
