SPRINGFIELD — It is that time of the year again, when Springfield Hospital hosts its annual Golf Challenge. The tournament takes place at the Fox Run Golf Club in Ludlow on Sept. 13.

Besides the amenities of this beautiful golf course, golfers in this premier tournament receive a box lunch at sign in, participation in course contests, player gift, and buffet and awards ceremony at the end of play.

A and B flights ensure that golfers compete at their own level and increase the number of winning teams. Winning team members will receive a cash prize.

There are hole-in-one prizes on all par 3 holes, including a new vehicle or $10,000 cash. Participants can compete for the longest putt and straightest drive.

A four-player scramble, the Springfield Hospital Challenge has a 1 p.m. shotgun start with registration starting at 11:30 a.m. The current state of Vermont, Vermont Golf Association and CDC guidelines at the time of the event will be followed.

Players can enter as a team or as individuals. The entry fee for this fundraiser is $150 per person or $600 for a team of four.

For sponsors, the event offers an opportunity to raise funds for the important services of Springfield Hospital, while also providing valuable exposure. Sponsorship packages range in size and value. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will be used to support the Springfield Hospital’s annual Giving Infusion Pump Campaign.
