An Event to Remember!
It was truly a “Chamber of Commerce Day” with blue skies, plenty of sunshine and a cool breeze blowing gently across the fairways. The Oak Valley course, designed by Arnold Palmer, was in great condition with picturesque waterways, gently rolling fairways, manicured greens and classic scenery abounding around every turn.
