Registration Opens for 25th Annual SML Invitational Golf Tournament

SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE – The Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber is accepting teams and sponsors for its 25th Annual Smith Mountain Lake Invitational Golf Tournament, which will take place June 11 at Copper Cove Golf Club, formerly The Westlake Golf and Country Club.

“We’re excited to be partnering with the new owners of Copper Cove to host this popular Chamber event,” said Erin Stanley, Member Relations and Events Director. “Members really enjoy spending a fun day on the course with customers or prospects, mixing business with pleasure. Many also use the afternoon as a team-building experience or as a way to reward employees.”

The tournament is an 18-hole Captain’s Choice format. Participants may enjoy lunch starting at 11 a.m. and then warm up on the range and putting green before the 1 p.m. shotgun start. Following the round, prizes will be awarded to the top three teams, as well as individual prizes for longest drive (men and women) and closest to the pin. Stanley said a wide array of door prizes will also be up for grabs.

The event’s signature sponsor is Gilbert Law, PC. Other sponsorship opportunities are available at a variety of levels, Stanley said.

“Sponsoring the tournament is an outstanding way to showcase your business and highlight products and services,” she said. “Sponsorships start at just $140, and some include entry fees for players.”

Stanley explained that space is limited so those interested in sponsoring or playing in the event should register soon.
