The Halifax County Chamber of Commerce will host its seventh annual Fall Classic Tournament on Friday.

The one-day tournament will host more than 35 teams at the Halifax County Country Club for what is sure to be another close competition.

The tournament is in a four-man scramble format with tee times at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

“This tournament gives business leaders the opportunity to network with others while promoting their businesses as well,” said Chamber President and CEO Mitzi McCormick. “This year we have fantastic prizes that any participant will be glad to win,” she added.

The tournament will include thousands of dollars in prizes for a ball drop, closest-to-the-pin, longest drive, putting challenge and two hole-in-one contests. Golfers will have the opportunity to take home a new Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, sponsored by Terry Volkswagen Subaru, for a hole-in-one on hole eight or an EZ-Go Golf Cart, sponsored by Bridgeview Carts and Trailers on hole 16.

A new addition to this year’s tournament is a putting challenge sponsored by JE Burton Construction Company. Those making the put will split a cash prize.

Proceeds will support Chamber programs and services, which are tied to supporting a prosperous business climate in Halifax County.
