Hospice of Cumberland County plans annual benefit golf tournament

The Hospice board of directors will host its 21st annual benefit golf tournament on Wednesday, 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 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. 

There will be $1,500 in cash prizes awarded to the first- and second- place team in each flight.  A $5,000 hole-in-one contest is available on hole #3 for each player who scores an ace, along with contests on all par 3s for electronics packages, golf equipment, and airline tickets for two, plus closest to the pin/closest to the line contests for both men and women.

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 pm.

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.

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