Ladysmith Chamber Memorial Golf Classic THANK YOU!

The Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce hosted its 14th Golf Classic on Friday as a Memorial Tournament in honour of Brian Marshall.  The sold out event in honour of Brian Marshall, a prominent, well respected member of our business community left participants and attendees happy and energized after a day of friendly competition and networking. The event, held at the Cottonwood Golf Course brought together local business leaders, community members, and golf enthusiasts for a day filled with camaraderie, excitement, and support for the local economy.

The tournament attracted a diverse field of participants with the common goal of fostering relationships and promoting economic growth, the golf tournament created a platform for meaningful interactions and networking opportunities. Participants took advantage of the relaxed environment to forge new business connections and strengthen existing ones, furthering the collaborative spirit of the community.

In addition to the on-course action, the Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament offered various engaging activities to enhance the overall experience. Participants and attendees had the opportunity to participate in skill challenges, such as a putting contest, the longest drive and closest-to-the-pin contests, a Car / $20,000 Hole in One sponsored by Chamber Member A&W, adding an extra layer of excitement to the event.

“The Chamber of Commerce Memorial Golf Classic is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Chamber, and this year’s event did not disappoint. We are grateful for the tremendous support from our participants, sponsors, and volunteers, who all played a crucial role in making this tournament a resounding success.  Much appreciation and thanks to our Title Sponsor,  the Ladysmith & District Credit Union for their continued support of the Ladysmith Chamber.  Ladysmith & District Credit Union is an active participant in the Ladysmith Community, committed to supporting the economic and social development of Ladysmith through sponsorships, scholarships, community programs and employee volunteerism.  Thank you to this years Tournament Sponsor, YCD (Nanaimo Airport) for their continued support.

This year our Memorial Golf Classic is in memory of Brian Marshall.  Partial proceeds of the tournament will be going towards a memorial bench in honour of Brian.  This Memorial was sponsored by 5 of his closest friends, Brian Childs, Luke Kolk, Wayne Richmond, Blaine Froats and Gerry Clarke.  Brian was a close friend to many and a supporter of everything Ladysmith!  His absence in the business community is sorely missed.

The success of the Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament not only highlighted the business and networking opportunities it provided but also emphasized the vibrant and supportive business community in Ladysmith. By bringing together professionals from various industries, the tournament played a vital role in strengthening the local economy and building lasting connections.

As the event concluded, participants and organizers expressed their excitement for the upcoming year, eagerly anticipating the next edition of the Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament. The event’s tradition of excellence and its ability to unite the business community in a spirit of camaraderie make it a highly anticipated event on the local calendar.
