Chamber of Commerce
It was definitely a "Chamber of Commerce Day" for those playing in Monday's annual West Plains Chamber of Commerce Caddyshack Classic Golf Tournament. Thirty-eight  3-person scramble teams began Shot-Gun style at the West Plains Country Club to vie for over $3,000.00 in prizes, and a chance to make a hole in one shot for a 'Mega Motorsports $9,600.00 2018 Yamaha Electric Golf Cart. Golfers began the tournament with a 'Burton Creek/Westgate-Carol Jones Realty/Ozarks Medical Center Lunch' and took warm ups on the 'West Plains Bank & Trust Company Driving Range and Putting Green'. Each Golfer received a Remax Connection Tournament gift bag as well as a sleeve of Pinnacle Rush golf balls for each golfer provided by Central Trust Company. Water and sport drinks were provided compliments of Ozarks Coca-Cola.
 
Richard Roberts was the big winner of the 'Wade Insurance-Darren Petrus Agent Callaway Laser Rangefinder' raffle. The winners of the 'Quality Floors Longest Drive Competition' were Kelsy Temple for the women and Jeremy Hafer for the men. Dennis Franks and Kimberly Grennan took the men's and women's honors as the 'Great Rivers Distributing Closest to the Pin' champions. Eric Judd and Kelsy Temple cleaned up in the 'Southern Hills Shopping Center Longest Putt' contest. There were no winners in the 'Mega Motorsports 2018 Yamaha Electric Golf Cart, 'Community First Banking Company Callaway X Series 416 Irons', 'Schultz, Wood & Rapp, P.C. 50" 4K Ultra HD Smart TV' or 'Ozark Radio Network $500 Visa Gift Card' Hole-In-One Contests.
