Anyone who attended the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce’s annual golf tournament last year will agree that a great time was had by all. This year will be even better. Board of Directors’ member, Mike Beiter, with Preservation 1st Financial, is the chairperson and said, “We’ve worked hard to make this even more fun than before and we’re looking for golfers who like to have fun while they golf.”

Co-chairing with Beiter is Jennifer King with Rodan + Fields and Waypoint Property Inspection along with a committee of volunteers.

This is the 20th tournament so it has a “Roaring 20’s” theme. It will be held at Summerfield Crossings Golf Club at 13050 Summerfield Blvd. in Riverview on Saturday, February 22.  Registration begins at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m.  A simple lunch will be provided for the golfers before they tee off and a Speakeasy Dinner is at 5:30 p.m.

Adding to the excitement of the day will be a ball drop.  Tickets are being sold for $5 for one ball, $10 for three balls and $20 for seven balls.  They will all be numbered and dropped from a bucket truck provided by Bryan Hindman of Hindman Electric and Beaver’s Tree Service.  The closest ball to the hole will split the pot and you do not have to be there to win.

Tickets will be sold for some great raffle prizes, so if your company would like to form a team or if you have one or two who would like to play, call the chamber at 234-5944 or e-mail

Magruder Insurance owner, Pat Magruder, has graciously donated $20,000 for a Hole-in-One Contest and a Puttin’ on the Ritz Putting Contest worth $10,000 is being sponsored by Ed Morse Cadillac in Brandon. Golfers will want to stop by Al Capone Alley to pick up some goodies and visit with vendors.

Many sponsorships are being offered: All That Jazz for $750, Model-Tee sponsor for $175 and Gatsby Green sponsor for only $50.  To ask about sponsorship packages, call or e-mail the chamber office. King said, “Plan to have an exciting day of challenging golf, great food, fun and the opportunity to network with friends and colleagues.”
