The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce held its inaugural Golf Classic last Friday at Green Hill Country Club, hosting 22 teams.

The day was filled with excitement as Brian Holland of Chesapeake Health Care, who played with PKS & Co., recorded a hole-in-one on the difficult No. 14. The ace secured Holland $25,000 toward the purchase or lease of a Pohanka Automotive vehicle and a $500 Visa Gift Card from Avery Hall Insurance.

The balls were numbered one to 142, and the numbers weres old at registration for raffle, the goal being to have the ball closest to the hole. The winner, Phil Lovell received $617.50 with the winning ball No. 123.
