Golf outing offers opportunity to network, enjoy the great outdoors


Have you been experiencing cabin fever in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic?

A day on the green may be just what you need to combat it.

This year’s Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Golf Outing is set for noon to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 30, at Fox Bend Golf Course, 3516 Route 34, Oswego. Dinner is included.

In its 31st year, the event “isn’t just about golf,” Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce President Angie Hibben said.

“It is about networking with other Chamber business owners and supporting the chamber. Some of our members bring customers as a thank you. It’s a great day,” she said.

And you can rest assured safety will be kept at the forefront. Attendees will be able to practice social distancing during dinner, Hibben said.

Additionally, Fox Bend Golf Course has enacted its own social distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of golfers and staff.

Registration for the event is now open.

The outing is one of several hosted by the Chamber annually to promote member businesses to the community and surrounding areas.

“This event allows business owners to network with other business owners while golfing, while waiting their turn to tee off, and during dinner,” Hibben said. “It also gives local members the opportunity to promote their business at a hole or with a giveaway to each golfer.”
