Dressing up for a day on the greens!

These gentlemen golfers donned dresses at the 6th hole to take advantage of the opportunity to tee off from the women’s tee instead of the men’s tee.
It was a day full of fun at the annual Castle Pines Chamber of Commerce golf tournament, “A Day on the Greens.” On a magnificent July afternoon, 108 golfers gathered at The Club at Pradera to take part in the Chamber’s biggest and best tournament to date.
One of the favorite events of the day was hole #6, aptly called “Dress Up.” Those men willing to take part in the fun, dressed in women’s clothing – like a wedding dress, wigs, and more in order to gain some extra yardage and tee-off from the women’s tee instead of the men’s tee.
“It was a hoot and a holler! Some said ‘no way’ and some said ‘yes – I will do that’!” shared Aspen Walker, branch manager for the Castle Pines and Lone Tree Douglas County Libraries who sponsored the hole. “It was a really good time in the middle of the course,” she added.
Another favorite hole -was the marshmallow hole, sponsored by Jordan Road CarStar. Golfers took aim at marshmallows instead of golf balls from the tee box. “It was hilarious to see the big clubs making contact with the marshmallows with itty bitty results,” shared Castle Pines Chamber President Sharon Kollmar.
The Castle Pines Chamber’s mission is to promote a vibrant business community. “With our annual golf tournament, we love to bring businesses and residents together in a fun way to inspire networking opportunities and friendships,” shared Kollmar.
A portion of proceeds from this year’s tournament will support the Douglas/Elbert Task Force. The Chamber would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the participants and sponsors of this year’s tournament. “We want to offer an extra special thank you to Berkshire Hathaway Preferred Real Estate and Don Bobeda for being the presenting sponsor for A Day on the Greens and for supporting the Chamber since its inception in 2007,” said Kollmar.
