The Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce held its first annual golf tournament on Saturday, June 21, 2022, on a beautiful summer day at Mountain Vista Greens Golf Course.

This is a new event for WACC that they hope to do every year. The Chamber co-sponsored the event with American Legion Station 176 in Wellington. The course featured several fun games and prize holes which included a chance to win $20,000 on a hole-in-one, men’s and women’s longest drive, closest to the pin and longest putt . Participants also played a game of corn hole chips and another hole giving them a guaranteed 325 yards.

A delicious pulled pork sandwich was served at the awards luncheon. Several fun items were raffled off as well as three great live auction items. Cheerful bidders went home very happy with their prices or purchases.

The Chamber would like to thank all of its generous sponsors, including Chairman Circle Investors, Blue Federal Credit Union, Points West Bank, Meridian Federal Credit Union, Wellington Eye Care, Town of Wellington, SunKissed Tans, Great Western Land Group, ReMax Alliance Kinzli Group, Anheuser-Busch Tour Center & Biergarten and North Forty News.

Major sponsors of the golf tournament were Silver Reef Organic Farms, LLC, Sweetwater Fisheries Group, The Human Bean and TDS.
