The Yorkville Chamber’s 17th annual golf outing at Blackberry Oaks Golf Course was a sell-out success, with the added bonus of beautiful and clear late-summer 70 degree weather.
Golfers enjoyed “hassle free” golfing, with mulligans, yardsticks, on-course games, lunch, dinner, drink coupons, and 19th hole refreshments all inclusive.
Many area businesses & organizations came together to sponsor and create a fun-filled day for the golfers.
THANK YOU SPONSORS!
