Duluth Chamber Golf Classic Tees Off 51st Annual Event

Updated: July 20, 2020 10:46 PM

Monday's weather was as perfect as a hole in one for the 51st annual Duluth Chamber Golf Classic.

Held at Ridgeview Country Club, it's the city's largest single day golf outing.

"We have a sold out crowd here today, over 200 golfers. This is the largest event that we've held since the pandemic, so we're really excited to get everyone back together again. Everyone's excited to network and be together on the golf course in a safe way," said Kathleen Privette, the Director of Events for the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce.

To keep the fun going organizers created a COVID-19 preparedness plan.

It included staggered team tee offs every ten minutes from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. in place of a shotgun start.

Teams were limited to 5 inviduals and were asked to social distance.

Winners be notified on Tuesday.
