Benefit Golf Tournament set for May 8

CROSSVILLE — The Hospice Board of Directors will host its 22nd annual Benefit Golf Tournament on Wednesday, May 8, at Lake Tansi Golf Course, according to tournament co-chairs Don and Sherry Koch. This event will raise funds for the only non-profit hospice organization in our local area. Hospice of Cumberland County provides comfort and care for the terminally ill as they spend their final days with dignity, surrounded by family and friends in homes and in our 6-bed residential facility, Cumberland House.  

In previous years, many local companies have pledged their support with a $150 tax deductible donation for a hole sponsorship sign. Since the tournament’s success relies on donations, we hope individuals will consider a hole sponsorship “in memory of” or “in honor of” a loved one, especially if that loved one enjoyed the game of golf. The tournament is in May, so this would be a wonderful Mother’s Day remembrance of a loved one. Donations are needed for golf hole sponsorships, prizes, and golfers’ gift bag items. Companies and individuals interested in supporting the tournament may contact Don or Sherry Koch at 707-7834 for further details.

The golf tournament format will be a four person scramble with a maximum of 32 teams. Three flights of teams will be a combination of men’s, women’s and mixed teams, determined by the team scores at the end of the golf round. $1,500 in cash prizes will be awarded to the First and Second Place Team in each flight, along with prizes for Closest to the Pin and Most Accurate Drive contests. 

The entry donation is $75 per golfer and includes green fee and cart, one mulligan per player, gift bag, lunch, beverage, and prizes. Registration and lunch will begin at 11:45 a.m. prior to the shotgun start of the tournament at 1 p.m. In the unlikely event of a rainout, lunch will be served and prizes awarded by drawings vs. play.

Get your team together and fill out the attached team entry form; mail checks to Hospice Golf Tournament, 32 Linden Court, Crossville, TN 38558-2877. If you prefer to receive a team entry form in email, please send an email to slick01@citlink.net.
