Join the Loudoun real estate industry’s top leaders and decision-makers for the annual “State Of the Loudoun Market” where you’ll gain the cutting-edge insight into the local economic climate and real estate market that your business needs to compete in today’s rapidly changing, and often chaotic, environment.
We held our 38th Annual Loudoun Chamber Classic at the award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course, The Club at Creighton Farms. This course is one of the finest on the Eastern Seaboard, and is nothing short of spectacular. We are proud to have produced Loudoun County’s premier business golf tournament for the past three decades, and we hope you and your colleagues will join us in 2021.
For the past 9 years, this casual, networking tournament pairs you and a partner against a field of over 30 two-man teams in a progressive four month tournament. Designed with the busy professional in mind, each event consists of a 9-hole round after work, followed by a short networking reception to get you home in time to put the kids to bed. The team with the lowest cumulative score after four events is the champion. Check back in 2021 for information on our 10th season.
