It’s a second chance to hit a hole in one with Mercy Health Foundation Fort Scott’s 2nd Annual Golf Classic.
The 4-person scramble is slated for Saturday, June 10, at Woodland Hills Golf Course in Fort Scott. Cash will be awarded for the top three places in two flights, with first place winning $300, second place winning $200, and third place winning $100 plus other prizes for various hole and chipping contests. Brigg’s Auto of Fort Scott will donate a new vehicle for a hole-in-one on hole 11, plus additional prizes for a hole-in-one on other par 3 holes.
“Thanks to our long list of sponsors, players will walk away with nice prizes and giveaways,” said Tina Rockhold, Mercy Health Foundation Fort Scott director. “Last year’s inaugural tournament was successful and organizers are looking forward to an even better event this year.”
The team entry fee is $200 and includes lunch from Sugarfoot and Peaches. Mulligans can also be purchased for $5 each (max of two per person) as well as raffle tickets for wonderful tailgating supplies.
The event is open to the public and proceeds from the tournament will stay local to support the purchase of capital equipment or programs at Mercy Hospital Fort Scott. Funds from the 2016 event helped to purchase the HydroWorx 300 underwater treadmill used for aquatic therapy.
Schedule of events:
