Salem Area Chamber of Commerce recently issued the following announcement.
Name: 7th Annual McLaran Classic Golf Tournament
Date: September 16, 2019
Website: McLaran Classic Registration
The McLaran Classic is one of the best ways to connect with the mid-Willamette Valley's top business decision makers. This double shotgun event is the largest professional golf tournament in the region, with 220 community leaders taking to the course in one day for a double shotgun event.
Golfers of all skill levels are welcome in the featured 4-person scramble format. Sponsors are set up throughout the course to greet participants and treat golfers to food, drinks and giveaways.
In a Scramble, each player will tee off and the best ball is selected. Each player will then hit from that spot, moving their golf ball no more than one club length. The best second shot is selected and everyone will then hit from that spot. This is continued until the ball is holed.
Golf handicaps will be needed for each participating golfer. Maximum handicap is 30 for men and 35 for women. Ten percent of combined team handicaps will be used.
