Bishop Chamber: Golf Fun Day


The Bishop Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau would like to say a special thank-you to everyone that assisted with the 6th Annual Golf Fun Day. The event really proved to put the “fun” in fundraising and we’re grateful to all of the players, volunteers, hole-sponsors and prize donors.

The annual Golf Fun day doesn’t follow the traditional tournament format. It’s really just a fun way to learn basic golf skills in a non-competitive way. The event draws a nice mix of experienced and non-experienced golfers and each hole features a different golf game challenge. Some holes are just for putting, some are for chipping a few for driving and all for fun. All of the prizes were awarded by raffle so everyone, regardless of score, had a chance to win. Prizes included merchandise and gift certificates donated by chamber member businesses and the grand prize was a new La-Z-Boy Recliner donated by Fendon’s Furniture.

The Bishop Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit 501(c) (6) organization that relies on community support for its many programs and projects. The Board and staff is thankful to all who supported the event and especially the excellent crew at Bishop Country Club. We’re already looking forward to next year!
