COOS BAY — The Driving Fore South Coast Hospice Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, July 20, at Coos Golf Club.
It’s the fifth year for this golf tournament and promises to be an exciting event. Golfers will be treated to a continental breakfast, lunch and a great swag bag in addition to a fun day on the links. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place teams, in addition to the closest to the hole and longest drive. The first hole-in-one at the designated hole wins $30,000.
The tournament is a four-person scramble, with registration and breakfast starting at 8 a.m. followed by the shotgun start at 9 a.m.
The owners and staff at Coos Golf Club and Restaurant are actively involved in the tournament and provided insight into making the event the best possible.
The course is located at 93884 Coos Sumner Lane in Coos Bay. To keep it fun, there will be games, mulligans and Phil Mickelsons for purchase. Entry fee for the tournament is $90 per person ($360 per team). All proceeds will benefit terminally ill patients in South Coast Hospice’s care.
The silent auction includes golf packages, tickets to Hawaii, hotel stays, gift certificates for outings, services and much more. The program will be available on the website www.schospice.org and on Facebook.
