Having a Classic time on the links

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

A crucial part of business is building relationships. While the bottom line for business is ultimately profits, success depends greatly on well-developed and maintained relationships. Networking is part of the foundation of success.

On Monday, we brought together business leaders from all over Utah at the Salt Lake Country Club for the Classic Golf Tournament. It was a day of golf, contests, good sportsmanship, fun, and of course, building relationships.

And there were also winners. The team with the best score of the day was the Bonneville Communications team, which consisted of Brandon Burton, Stewart Rutter, Brent Burton and Matt Barns, with a score of 56. That’s a couple strokes lower than last year’s winners!

The second place team was the Les Olson troop and CBRE wrapped up third place.

As for the contests at individual holes, Stephanie Palmer (KSL News Radio) won the Longest Drive for a Woman and David Summerhays (The Boyer Company) had the longest drive of the men.

And here is the winner of the photo contest:

Utah business leaders tee off at the Classic Golf Tournament

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

One of the Salt Lake Chamber’s objectives is to bring the business community together to build stronger bonds and relationships–and that’s just what we did on Tuesday with the Classic Golf Tournament.

Dozens of Utah’s business leaders showed up at the Salt Lake Country Club for a beautiful day of putting and driving instead of logging in hours at the office. What could beat that?

As each four-person team passed by the Chamber-sponsored hole, every group said they were having a great time. Not every team was made up of just one company; many golf carts that drove by had up to four different companies represented.

Even golf legend Billy Casper graced everyone with his presence Tuesday afternoon.

At the end of the day, the winning team was Ron Jibson and Rey Butcher (President and VP) from Questar, Republican Chair Tom Wright and Utah Association of Realtors CEO Chris Kyler. They finished the 18-hole course with a score of 59.

After all the putting and driving was done, all the business leaders adjourned for lunch, raffle prizes and to share experiences with each other.

We’d like to thank the beautiful Salt Lake Country Club for hosting the Classic Golf Tournament. A thank you also goes to our event sponsors CB Richard Ellis, Intermountain Healthcare and Rocky Mountain Power as well as all of our hole sponsors listed below for making the Chamber Classic Tournament possible.

Teeing it Up at the Salt Lake Chamber Classic Golf Tournament

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

The 21st Annual Salt Lake Chamber Golf Classic gave Chamber members a chance to get out of the office and play a round.

No matter how good any of the players were–and we had some pretty solid golfers–none could honestly claim to be the best golfer at the event.

We’re not being mean, that’s just a fact.

Anytime you have a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame who happens to be a two-time PGA Tour Player of the Year and a two-time U.S. Open champion who also has a green jacket in his closet for winning the 1970 Masters Tournament… there’s no shame in being second best.

Billy Casper, who now calls Utah home, spent the day on the course. He gave some putting tips and talked about his time on the tour.

More than 120 players participated in the Chamber Classic this year. Congratulations to everyone who got out of the office on a magnificent morning and especially to the foursome from Holmes Homes for winning the tournament.
