GGCC to Host 28th Annual Business Golf Classic



Tee it high, and let it fly.

The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) will host its 28th Annual Business Golf Classic at Worthington Manor Golf Club, 8329 Fingerboard Road, Urbana, Maryland on Friday, September 14.

The chamber’s tournament affords golfers the opportunity to grow their business and play golf at the same time. This tournament is intended to offer enjoyable golf and the opportunity to network.

“At the Chamber, relationship building is what it’s all about. Our golf tournament is a great time to do just that - meet new people, reconnect with others”, said Marilyn Balcombe, GGCC Executive Director.

‘Golf is an extremely important networking tool. It has long been said, ‘it's not what you know, but who you know,’ and simply put, a golf course is a great place to get to know someone. You are out on the course, beautiful day, you’re having a good game, your foursome is enjoying themselves and you're all having a great time. A situation like this could very possibly be considered work,” she said.

Golf is a game that involves a lot of downtime so it affords plenty of opportunity for quality conversation. Participants are encouraged to take advantage of this time and build relationships.

The Chamber’s tournament offers its members and guests a variety of sponsorship opportunities for them to either play and/or network with business colleagues, gain exposure, build good will and get brand recognition for their business. At this tournament over 100 business owners, representatives and supporters can complete their round, win prizes, compete in golf contests, enjoy food and drinks and have an ultimate golf experience.

A portion of the proceeds supports the Montgomery College Scholarship Fund. Last December, the Chamber. Exceeded its endowment goal of $100,000. The endowment was established for future giving and to ensure that the GGCC continued to support Montgomery College in perpetuity. We are committed to workforce development & investing in Montgomery College students. The GGCC is grateful to its sponsors, golfers, volunteers and Worthington Manor Golf Club.

The GGCC is active in providing business-to-business networking opportunities throughout the year: a collective voice in local, regional, and state legislative affairs, professional development opportunities and other services that enhance the business environment.
