The Town & Country – Frontenac Chamber of Commerce exists to promote the interests of member businesses through networking, education and advocating on their behalf.
That’s the official description of why the chamber exists but the Chamber’s immediate past president, David Zaegel, says Chamber membership and participation is a great way to get to know other people in the community and find out what’s going on.
One of the things going on is the Chamber’s annual Golf Tournament, taking place this year on Monday, Sept. 30 at the Pevely Farms Golf Club in Eureka.
“The start is at 12:30 p.m.,” Zaegel said, “with registration and lunch at 11:30 a.m. The cost to participate is $460 per foursome or $125 for an individual player.
“This year, the tournament will support two organizations. one is the Town & County-Frontenac Chamber and the other is the Professional Women’s Alliances. They will be golfing with us,” Zaegel said. “In turn, both organizations support local businesses in the area.
“Everyone is welcome to join us. We’ll be taking registrations for the next two weeks, until about Sept. 17.”

About Pevely Farms: Located at 400 Lewis Road, Pevely Farms was once a thriving dairy show farm. today, it has been transformed into a world-class, 18-hole championship golf course by course architect Arthur Hills.
Playing at over 7,100 yards from the championship tees, the layout features manicured zoysia fairways and bent grass greens. It appeals to golfers of all skill levels and provides an excellent challenge for the scratch golfer as well as pleasure and fun for the occasional player.
While many courses have one scenic hole or two, Pevely Farms has one postcard-worthy view after another. From the many changes in elevation, to the forced carries over water, to the breathtaking views of the Meramec River Valley, every detail of the course stands in harmony with its surroundings.
