The 2020 Chamber / Rotary Golf Scramble, is a long standing tradition of a great day out on the links with friends. This event is presented by the Benton / West City Area Chamber of Commerce and the Benton Rotary Club; with the support of our major sponsors and our hole sponsors. 

The 2020 event will be held on October 2, 2020 .  This years Golf Scramble promises to be scary fun!  This year we will have a Rotary team as well as a Chamber team playing along side our golfers to receive bragging rights. To add to the fun we will be giving away a trophy for the Best Team Costume and the Best overall Costume.  Costumes are not required,  but we figured since it is October we would add a little fun to the scramble by asking you to get creative with your team and come up with a killer costume.
