Chamber luncheon to offer information on golf course

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

The Cassville Golf Course will host the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce's final quarterly luncheon of 2011 at noon on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

"The Cassville Golf Course is an integral part of Cassville, and we hope people will come to the luncheon to learn all our local course has to offer," said Bob Callahan, Cassville Golf Course Board chairman.

Dan Blanke, Cassville Golf Course Board member, will serve as the guest speaker during the chamber luncheon. Blanke will present information on improvements that have been made to the course, the benefits of membership and upcoming events.

Blanke will also reveal plans for the Tri-State Tournament, which will be held at the golf course in 2013.

"This event will bring around 100 women from outside the area into town," said Callahan. "It will bring a lot of business to our community, similar to what the Hillbilly Golf Tournament does each year. These individuals will fill our hotels and spend money in Cassville from Friday through Sunday during the tournament."

The Cassville Golf Course features 18 holes of bent grass green and Bermuda fairways. The course also offers a pro shop, swimming pool and driving range. Cart and club rentals are available.

"The Cassville Golf Course is a valuable part of our community," said Mindi Artherton, chamber executive director. "It is a great service local people can utilize along with an avenue to attract tourists to our area. The luncheon will be a great time to become educated on all our course has to offer."

The Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce's "The Chamber: Today and Beyond" program is designed to showcase contributions made to the local community by area businesses, industries and organizations.

Community members who attend the luncheon, which will be held in the Cassville Golf Clubhouse dining room, will enjoy a meal catered by The BBQ Station. The quarterly luncheon event will cost $7 per person.

To register for the event, call Artherton at 847-2814 or email her at The registration deadline is Friday, Dec. 2.
