CVHC to sponsor August Golf Scramble

   Clearwater Valley Hospital and Clinics will be hosting their fifth annual golf scramble on Sunday, Aug. 29 at the Orofino Golf and Country Club.

   Openings are available for both golfers and hole sponsors. All proceeds benefit the programs and services of CVHC. “We limit the number of four person teams to 18 and 13 teams have already signed up. We use the scramble format so everyone is guaranteed a good time,” said Jim May, CVHC Foundation

Development Director. “The scramble is followed by a lunch and awards presentation. Each golfer is free to invite a guest to the luncheon. It’s included in the entry fee. The scramble is an opportunity for golfers and donors to support local health care while having a good time.”

   This year there will be two hole-in-one competitions with $10,000 prizes available. A tee shot within ten feet of the third and twelfth holes will also be featured. Cash prizes will also be awarded to first, second and third place teams. The entry fee of $55 per player includes greens fee, a lunch, non alcoholic beverages plus the additional lunch for a player’s guest.

   Teams registered for the 18-hole scramble must have a minimum combined team handicap of 55 and only one player per team can have a handicap of 12 or less.

   Each team must use every player’s drive at least twice. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with a 9 a.m. start time.

   Proceeds become part of a legacy endowment that will benefit the hospital for years to come. To register or for more information, call the Foundation office, 476-8033. The entry fee or sponsor donation can be paid by check, money order, or by credit card.
