The Chamber Invitational Golf Tournament is the largest Chamber fundraiser of the year. The tournament provides opportunities to network, promote your company and have some fun playing a beautiful course. Proceeds support the efforts of the SouthCoast Chamber in our mission to advocate for business advancement, economic growth and job creation for the area.

The 2017 Chamber Invitational Golf Tournament is scheduled for Tuesday, September 5th at the Acushnet River Valley Golf Course. This beautiful 18-hole course designed by Brian Silva offers four sets of tees measuring 5,099 to 6,807 yards, allowing golfers of all skill levels to enjoy their rounds of golf. Routed through two distinct topographies, the front nine is built on moderate topography similar to Carolina golf courses while the back nine begins and closes in the woods, but plays predominantly through a Scottish links style design. This year’s tournament will provide an exciting opportunity to network, promote your company and have some fun playing the beautiful course!
