Naw, its not the second coming of Easy Rider, its
time for the 21st annual edition of the Spelman Golf Classic.
Don your do-rags, oil up your hogs, and dont forget
your pitching wedge.
For the past 20 years, the Spelman Golf Classic has been
one of the Northlands best-attended and most recognized
charity golf tournaments.
This year, the 21st Annual Spelman Golf Classic will again
be held at Paradise Pointe Golf Complex-Outlaw Course
at Smithville Lake. The Spelman Classic benefits the Spelman
Medical Foundation, which was charted in 1982 to support,
assist and improve the total health care of the person,
family and community.
Over 250 players are expected to participate in this,
the first two-day event in the history of the Classic.
Players will have a choice of playing on the afternoon
of Friday, Sept. 6 or on the morning of Saturday, Sept.
The event is a two-person scramble. The cost of entry
is $175 and all proceeds will be used for quality patient
care and community education at the Saint Lukes
Northland Hospital facilities. Players will be grouped
into five mens and one ladys flight.
This years tournament theme is, Born to be
Wild, a title of a late 1960s ode to the two-wheel
experience of freedom on the open road.
Born to be wild is more of a statement about the
feeling of freedom and exhilaration and renewal that you
might experience whether you are a motorcyclist or just
someone who enjoys being on the golf course on a beautiful
day," said Dean C. Henricksen, tournament chairperson.
Our tournament is, of course, fun, but we are also
very serious about supporting the great work of the Spelman
Foundation," he said.
Players in the Spelman Golf Classic will be treated to
a high quality tee gift package, which will include new
golf shoes and other goodies."
Players and spouses are also invited to attend a gala
awards banquet held following play Saturday night, Sept.
7 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, KCI.
Many sponsorship packages are available which include
a VIP reception at the home of Dr. David Myers on Friday,
Sept. 6. Single player entry fees start at $175. For more
