There are plenty of jokes about doctors playing golf, but for the 8th year, the Presbyterian Health Foundation is hosting a golf tournament to help make new doctors.
This year’s tournament on October 7 at Twin Hills Golf & Country Club will benefit graduate research assistants at OMRF and 4th year students at the OU Health Sciences Center College of Medicine.
“Since we began, we’ve given $120,000 in scholarships to help students at OMRF and OUHSC,” said JR Caton, vice president of operations at PHF.
In addition to raising funds for students on their way to careers in research and clinical care, the tournament awards prizes for the best scramble teams and some individual achievements.
Registration and lunch begin at 11 a.m., followed by a “shot-gun” start at 1, with hors d’oeuvres and door prizes following completion of play.
There will also be a raffle, including floor seats to a Thunder game, a 60-inch TV, three golf packages and a gift certificate to Dick’s Sporting Goods. All raffle tickets are $25 each.
Those interested in playing can contact Caton at (405) 319-8161 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
