The event, again supported by Carbon Financial Partners, was played over the PGA Centenary Golf Course at Gleneagles.
Places were snapped up in record time as the sellout showcase witnessed teams compete for a range of top trophies and prizes.
The individual winner was James Riley, who scooped the Chamber Millennium Trophy.
Gordon Wilson, managing director of Carbon Financial Partners, said: “The Championship Centenary Course was in excellent condition.
“The event organisation was first class and the staff at Gleneagles couldn’t have been more hospitable and welcoming.
“The event was again superbly well supported by the local business community, there were only a couple of showers and everyone had a fantastic day. We look forward to supporting this quality event again next year.”
Chamber chief executive Vicki Unite added: “The result of this partnership was, once again, a flawless event which was thoroughly enjoyable.
“We are delighted to confirm our partnership again with Carbon and look forward to an equally successful event next year.”
Additional support came from platinum partners Binn Group, Blackadders, Thorntons, Castle Water, Urban Union, DWK Office Solutions, Graham Environmental Services, Fairways HR Business Support and Recruitment Specialists and Perth College UHI, plus gold partner Crieff Hydro Hotel.
