The Noblesville Chamber of Commerce’s annual golf outing is usually one of the last scheduled in the fall. That’s not the case this year because many outings planned for spring or summer were postponed to the fall because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“So, there is a lot of more golf tournament opportunities in September than there normally is,” Noblesville Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Bob DuBois said. “There is a bit of competition, and every nonprofit holding a golf tournament like ourselves is in need of revenue. We understand businesses have to make choices. We’re just hopeful that a lot of them will make the choice of supporting the Noblesville Chamber’s golf outing.”
Birdies & Brews V is set for Sept. 24 at Purgatory Golf Club in Noblesville. Check-in is at 10:30 a.m. with a shotgun start for the best-ball format at noon. The 19th-hole reception is set for 5 p.m.
“It’s the fifth year for this style of golf tournament,” DuBois said. “We’ve been having golf tournaments for many, many years longer.”
DuBois said the outing is by far the Noblesville Chamber’s largest fundraiser. Proceeds go to its small business support services.
“It’s one of the remaining type of events that seems to have natural safety measures built in,” he said.
DuBois said several other changes will be made to safeguard participants. Foursomes can take individual carts if they choose to.
DuBois said there won’t be as much sharing of materials.
Lunch will be individual pizzas from Domino’s Pizza.
“Our 19th hole in the past has been a nice buffet,” DuBois said. “That’s something we can’t do any longer, so we’re still working out the details on that. There will be a gathering after golf to let people safely socialize a bit. It will not be a sit-down meal.”
DuBois said the outing is two/thirds full for foursomes. There is still plenty of room for sponsors.
DuBois said organizers are still working on details on how the traditional craft beer tastings will be conducted.
Cost is $600 fora foursome and $1,200 for a birdie package, which includes a logo on the Birdie Sponsor Signage, one on-course marketing table, a logo displayed on the website and a golf program advertisement.
