YACC Golf Outing

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.

  • Golf Cart Sponsor Mars Wrigley wowed everyone with generous bagfuls of candy.
  • On-course beverages were complimentary, thanks to sponsor FNBC Bank & Trust.
  • The Bloody Mary Bar, sponsored by Earthmover Credit Union, welcomed golfers before they headed out on the course.
  • On-course volunteers were shuttled by Outing Uber, Karylin Clevenger of Veterans Assistance Commission of Kendall County.
  • Golfers were able to use mulligans and yardsticks to improve their scores, thanks to sponsors Konen Insurance and Yorkville Ace Hardware.
  • No winners unfortunately, but the option to win $10,000 for a hole-in-one was sponsored by Brian Feltes Insurance-Jennifer Jones Sinnott.
  • First National Bank FNBO sponsored the Money Bags Hole, with five cash winners.

Hole sponsors treated golfers to free raffles, games, contests, and refreshments.
