The sixth annual Texas County Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation charitable golf tournament is today at Oakwood Golf Course in Houston.
Team times for the two-person scramble are 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Cost is $100 and includes a cart, green fees and lunch. The tournament is limited to 40 teams.
Prizes will be awarded in four flights with three places in each flight. The number of entrants in the tournament will determine prizes and flights.
Golfers will have the opportunity to win a new vehicle — sponsored by Sturgeon Chevrolet-Buick in Licking — for the first hole-in-one on the fifth hole. Prizes for the longest drive and closest to the pin will also be given in addition to door prizes for the entrants.
The TCMH Healthcare Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to ensure the quality of healthcare services for children, women and men at TCMH.
“The TCMH Healthcare Foundation golf tournament assists us in developing the funds needed for our scholarship program, and it helps provide resources for patient care,” said Jay Gentry, TCMH Healthcare Foundation director.
The foundation has awarded four $1,000 scholarships during the school year – two in the spring and two in the fall – since 2006. The scholarships are given to students in the TCMH service area that are pursuing additional education in a healthcare field.
The foundation is already accepting applications for two $1,000 scholarships that will be awarded for the fall academic semester.
