The Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce offers many opportunities to build stronger business relationships at our signature events, educational luncheons and networking mixers. The chamber recognizes the importance of our role in supporting our local community and other surrounding areas. Our events and activities promote employment and economic growth due to the incredible amount of networks that are formed between residents and nearby businesses.

Last year one of our most fun and well attended events was our annual golf tournament and we intend to make this year even better. In honor of the chamber’s 20th anniversary, we are hosting the tournament at the Ahwatukee Country Club, a founding and 20-year member of the chamber. Mark your calendar for the 17th Annual Chamber Masters Golf Tournament to take place on April 11, presented by Trane and Brewer’s Air Conditioning & Heating.

The Chamber Masters Golf Tournament is our signature fundraising event for Ahwatukee’s Red, White and Boom community fireworks, a 39-year tradition for our community and the wonderful families we have living here. Our Golf Committee is busy putting together another quality tournament attended by more than 144 golfers and guests who will compete to win the coveted Chamber Masters jacket and become this year’s champ.

“The Golf Tournament is one of the best events we host each year,” says golf committee chair, Darla Salem. “It’s a great opportunity for people in the community and local business owners to socialize and make connections while raising money to support the community’s Red, White and Boom fireworks. If you are interested in volunteering at the event, contributing a donation for our raffle, or being a sponsor please contact the chamber.”

We are anticipating another highly successful and well-attended tournament. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to showcase your products and services to chamber members and guests by being a sponsor of this event. As a sponsor or donor, you can positively impact the community, and the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce would be honored to have you involved. Vital to the success of this event is the support of area businesses and community leaders. We are already being met with enthusiasm and support for this year’s tournament and here’s how you can help:

• Become an event sponsor.

• Donate an item to our auction or raffle.

• Register a team to play in the tournament.

Golf challenged? Come out and join us for lunch and networking. There will be lots of fun for all including a delectable buffet luncheon and great raffle prizes and auction items.

Community engagement inherently creates communities who take pride and self responsibility for what goes on in their neighborhood and its outside appearance. So what are you waiting for? Participate as a golfer, sponsor, or if your company would like to be represented by making a donation, the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber would like to hear from you.

Get involved today as the tournament sells out quickly. Visit to register or contact (480) 753-7676 for more information.

Together we can make Ahwatukee the best place in the Valley to live!
