Besides the amenities of this beautiful golf course, golfers in this premier tournament receive a box lunch at registration, complimentary refreshments on the course, and a post-event buffet. This year, every golfer will also receive a classic 16-ounce Tervis Tumbler with customized logo to commemorate the hospital’s 105th anniversary. This year’s tournament will also feature an “air cannon” contest with prizes.

A and B flights ensure that golfers compete at their own level and increase the number of winning teams. Gift certificates to Okemo’s pro shop are awarded to more than one out of every four golfers in the tournament.

There are hole-in-one prizes on all par-3 holes, including a new vehicle. A putting contest, sponsored by Claremont Savings Bank, is a chance to win a cash prize and there are individual prizes for longest putt and straightest drive. Raffles make sure that everyone goes home a winner.

A four-player scramble, the Springfield Hospital Challenge has a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20. Players can enter as a team or as individuals.

For sponsors, the event offers an opportunity to raise funds for the important services of Springfield Hospital, while also providing valuable publicity. Sponsorship packages range in size and value.
