Golfers will play the 18-hole, par 72 course. The en­try fee is $125 per golfer. Four­somes and in­di­vid­ual golfers are wel­come.

Tour­na­ment par­tic­i­pants also will en­joy a va­ri­ety of com­pe­ti­tions in ad­di­tion to the 18-holes of play. Ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude men’s and women’s long­est-drive com­pe­ti­tion, men’s and women’s clos­est-to-the-pin com­pe­ti­tion, a hole-in-one com­pe­ti­tion and a putting com­pe­ti­tion.

On the day of the tour­na­ment, reg­is­tra­tion will be­gin at 11 a.m. A light lunch will be served be­fore the shot­gun start at 1 p.m. Re­fresh­ments will be avail­able on the course. Af­ter play, the golfers are in­vited back to the club­house for ap­pe­tiz­ers and an awards re­cep­tion.

Mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who are not golfers and golfers who want to do more to sup­port Com­pass Re­gional Hospice may sign on as tour­na­ment spon­sors.

“We have spon­sor­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties rang­ing from $200 to $5,000,” said Kenda Lea­ger, de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer for Com­pass Re­gional Hospice.

“Thanks to the sup­port of our golfers and spon­sors, who make this an­nual event suc­cess­ful, we are able to con­tinue to of­fer pro­grams that are not re­im­bursed from other sources,” said Heather Guereri, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for Com­pass Re­gional Hospice.

“Over the last 20 years, the an­nual Com­pass Re­gional Hospice Golf Tour­na­ment has be­come a fun way for the com­mu­nity to get in­volved in sup­port­ing hospice care and grief sup­port, and we are look­ing for­ward to this year’s tour­na­ment.”
