The Annual Golf Outing is a popular special event held at Pleasant View Golf Course. Every July, over 300 Chamber members, their guests, and the community take part in Sunrise Yoga, 18 holes of golf and Par 3 golf. This is followed by an evening of networking, dinner, and awards. It is a wonderful day for golfers and non-golfers alike (we've got something for everyone!).
