Aspinwall Chamber golf outing to make a comeback

The Aspinwall Chamber of Commerce is bringing back an event that once was a favorite.

The organization will hold a golf outing on Sept. 20 at the LakeVue North Golf Course, 591 Pittsburgh Road, Butler County.

Eric Scholl of Edward Jones in Aspinwall, a member of the chamber of commerce, said the group used to hold regular golf outings. New leaders who took over the organization last year are trying to revitalize the chamber, and Scholl said they decided to start golf outings again.

“There's a couple of us who are golfers,” Scholl said. “We figured we wanted to give it a shot.”

Money raised from the event will go toward programs sponsored by the chamber.

Scholl said members have considered organizing a historical tour of Aspinwall, creating maps of local businesses and more social events. The group also participates in the annual Light Up the Wall Christmas program.

Scholl said two of the golf outing holes are available for sponsorships, but the main need is for more golfers.

The cost is $100 per person to play with four players on each team.

Hole sponsorships costs $100. The deadline for sponsors is Sept. 9.

Golfers can sign up the day of the event.

Scholl said he's confident the event will draw a good crowd.

“They tend to come in at the last minute,” he said.

The day also includes lunch, a steak dinner, door prizes, 50/50 raffles and beverages. Cost for dinner only is $25. For more information, call Scholl at 412-480-4771 or Steve Dzvonick at 412-389-6978.
