Absolutely perfect weather greeted golfers on June 1 when the Flamborough Chamber of Commerce (FCC) and the Rotary Club of Waterdown (RCW) co-hosted the annual Flamborough Open golf tournament at the Carlisle Golf & Country Club.

A special THANK YOU goes out to Rob Murray and his team at Carlisle for another outstanding effort. As usual, the incredible prime rib dinner Carlisle is famous for awaited golfers after the tournament. Auctioneer Jim McCartney again worked his magic at the live auction before dinner. And every golfer went home with a beautiful hanging plant from Terra – Where Colour Lives. CHCH reporter Nicole Martin joined the golfers after dinner and helped choose the winner of the 50/50 draw (a record of $770).

Many thanks also to our sponsors. The proceeds will be divided between the RCW and the FCC. In keeping with its motto of ‘Service Above Self,‘ the RCW portion will go to support a variety of local, regional, national and international causes and projects. As the ‘little chamber that can’ the FCC portion is an essential part of the annual budget that allows it to be the ‘credible and effective voice of business in Flamborough.’

The 2016 Flamborough Open was organized by a committee comprised of RCW and FCC representatives. The RCW representatives were Nick Brown (Brown Financial Services), Wendy Hickey (Pillar Retirement Group) and Rick Ludwig (Kitching Steepe Ludwig Funeral Home) while the FCC was represented by Stephanie Bourne, Mike Martin and FCC Executive Director Arend Kersten. FCC bookkeeper Janet Barnard, photographer Wilf Arndt and Christina Birmingham (Birmingham Consulting) also played huge roles as did Patty DiFelice of Waterdown Collision. The2017 Flamborough Open is scheduled for Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Why not join us?
