Hospice benefit golf tournament approaching

CROSSVILLE — The Hospice Board of Directors will host its 21st annual benefit golf tournament May 9 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 the 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.  

The 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. 

Dr. Mark Hendrixson is the sponsor of the $5,000 hole-in-one contest on hole No. 3 for each player who scores an ace during our event.  Dr. Hendrixson’s support also provides terrific prizes of an electronics package (choice of an Apple Ipad, Dell Notebook Computer, Apple Ipod Touch or Sony Theater System, Handycam or Camera) on hole No. 6, choice of premium golf equipment (Callaway Diablo clubs, TaylorMade Burner clubs, travel bag or SkyCaddie GPS) on hole No. 15, plus airline tickets for two on hole No. 12. 

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. 

Gather your friends and send in  team information; mail checks to Hospice Golf Tournament, 32 Linden Court, Crossville, TN 38558-2877.  Please list your name, address, phone and email and a confirmation call will be made once your team is paid.

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, individuals should 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.  Companies and individuals interested in supporting the tournament may contact Don or Sherry Koch at (931) 707-7834 for further details.
