Golfers will head west to hit the links – for a good cause – in an upcoming Yukon Chamber of Commerce benefit.

The Yukon Chamber’s 41st Annual Golf Classic is coming up next Friday, Sept. 8 at Crimson Creek Golf Course in El Reno. The four-person scramble will tee off at 8 a.m.

Crimson Creek is the new venue for the Yukon Chamber’s tournament, which has been moved from the Golf Club at Surrey Hills because of scheduling.

“Don’t go to Surrey,” Yukon Chamber CEO Pam Shelton said Thursday. “We have 22 teams registered and room for four or five more. Call as soon as possible!

“We definitely need volunteers to be ‘hole sitters’ and to help us with other duties during the day.”

Any golfer who sinks a hole-in-one will be eligible for a $25,000 “super-prize”.

Meanwhile, the Yukon Chamber is still collecting door prizes (sponsored by OU Health) for drawings and “swag” bag items for the golfers.

The weekly Yukon Community Coffee will be hosted by Air Comfort Solutions from 7-7:45 a.m. Sept. 8 at Crimson Creek before the golf tourney starts. McDonald’s will provide breakfast.

Cost to play is $500 for a four-person team or $140 for an individual.



The Yukon Chamber has set a $20,000 fund-raising goal, with proceeds to support the chamber’s operations and events – including its student scholarship fund.

Hole sponsorships are $100 each. Premier sponsor levels range from $300 to $850.

“We’re hoping for good weather; not too hot,” Shelton added. “It will be a fun day.”

The Yukon Chamber Golf Committee is headed by Angelique Morton, with help from Dr. Kenica Thompson and Jarrid Wright.

This golf tournament is among the Yukon Chamber’s annual fund-raisers. Its largest, the spring awards gala, raised about $65,000.
