Hopkins County Chamber Connection

By Butch Burney

If you’re a golfer, you won’t want to miss out on the 34th Annual Chamber Golf Tournament, set for April 7 at the Sulphur Springs Country Club.

Like last year, the registration fee for a six-person scramble team is $750, with tee times at 8:00 am and 1:30 pm. Our afternoon tee times are complete, but we still have room in the morning for teams. Registration includes 12 mulligans, six meal tickets, and three carts.

We also have many sponsorship opportunities, including holes-in-one and interactive hole sponsorships, so check out our registration form online at or drop by the office at 110 Main St.

Eclipse 2024

Don’t be caught in the dark when April 8, 2024, the eclipse happens! We continue to have committee meetings to prepare for this celestial event that will bring thousands of visitors to Hopkins County.

Our next committee meeting is the Events Committee, meeting at 9:00 am. Wednesday, March 8. If interested, please come to the Chamber office for the meeting.

Sulphur Springs is ranked the eighth-best place in North America to watch the 2024 eclipse, so let’s prepare!

Business After Hours

Our next Business After Hours will be from 4:30–5:30 pm on Thursday, March 16, at the House of Sabo, 214 Main St.
