(WATERVLIET) – Area golfers can now register for the Gordon Knutson Memorial Golf Tournament, set for Friday, June 28, at Lake Michigan Hills Golf Course, located at 2520 Kerlikowske Road, Benton Harbor. The fundraising event is sponsored by the Community Hospital Foundation and will help support the expansion of Lakeland Community Hospital, Watervliet.
Registration will open at 12:00 p.m. for the tournament; play will begin at 1:00 p.m. with a shotgun start. Two packages are available:
Standard Golf Package ($85 per player): 18 holes of golf, cart, box lunch, and post-tournament steak dinner reception
Deluxe Golf Package ($100 per player): Standard Golf Package, one mulligan, one string, one putting contest voucher, six raffle tickets
Also, additional tickets for the post-tournament steak dinner reception are available for $25 each.
Though the purpose of the event is to raise money for the hospital, there will be winners, and a cash prize will be given. There will also be a raffle drawing.
“All the funds that we raise are going towards the expansion of the hospital in Watervliet,” says Karen Dye, Donor Relations Coordinator, Lakeland Health Foundations. “Those who participate not only enjoy themselves, but the knowledge that they are helping the local hospital is very gratifying.”
The tournament is named after Gordon Knutson, who was both an enthusiastic supporter of the Community Hospital Foundation and an avid golfer. This tournament is a representation of both his interests.
