Sherwood Park & District Chamber of Commerce - The Chamber of Commerce has always stood for promoting business; monitoring municipal, provincial and federal governments; and championing managed growth in the local economy. The Chamber of Commerce strives to increase its influence in the community, the relevance to business, and overall ability to represent the members. The focus must be on the needs and wants of the membership.

Sherwood Rams Bursary Golf Tournament – This year marks the 15th Annual Sherwood Park Rams Bursary Golf Tournament that will take place at Broadmoor Public Golf Course. The Rams Golf Tournament has been set up as the funding cornerstone in helping Rams Alumni to further their education. Proceeds from this tournament will be directed to providing bursaries to Rams Alumni who are attending post-secondary institutions.
We have awarded more than 115 bursaries over the past 14 years. We are very proud of this achievement and equally proud that this is the ONLY Bantam team football bursary program in Canada. Chris Korte and his wife Sharleen volunteer as the Tournament Chairpersons.
