Golf scramble to benefit Blue Mountain Care Center

Participants enjoy a past Blue Mountain Healthcare Scramble at the John Day Golf Club. This year's tournament will be held Sunday, Aug. 27.

The Blue Mountain Healthcare Foundation’s annual fundraiser golf scramble is on the horizon.

Set for Sunday, Aug. 27, the 18-hole tournament will be played at the John Day Golf Club with check-in at 8 a.m. and tee off at 9 a.m.

Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Blue Mountain Care Center in Prairie City, with a focus on replacing the old boiler, updating heating in the building and the purchase of a walk-in refrigerator and freezer.

The deadline to sign up a four-person team is Aug. 24, and the cost is $75 per person.

If anyone signs up with fewer than four players, they will be placed with other players to make up a team.

Cart rentals are available for $20.

Awards and cash prizes will be presented after the scramble.

Tickets for a barbecue by Tim and Tracie Unterwegner are $25 each.

BMHF board president Jack Southworth said it’s an event not to be missed.

“It would be hard to imagine a funner golf tournament,” he said. “We’ll have complimentary food and drink on the course for participants.”

Entries may be mailed, delivered or called in to Blue Mountain Healthcare Foundation, 170 Ford Road, John Day, OR 97845, or 541-575-1311.
