Plans are underway for the seventh annual Texas County Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation Charitable Golf Tournament.
Tournament organizers are asking interested participants to save the date of Saturday, June 9, with plans of attending the tournament at Oakwood Golf Course in Houston.
The tournament is a two-person scramble. Teams can play for $120, which includes a cart, green fees, mulligans and lunch. Tee times are8 a.m. and 1 p.m. 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.
There will be many prizes awarded including a hole in one prize and prizes for the longest drive and closest to the pin. Entrants will also be eligible for door prizes.
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 awards 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 and other Foundation administered scholarships that will be awarded for the fall academic semester.
