While enhancing care for patients and residents at the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre was the focal point on June 10th at the Lacombe Golf and Country Club, golfers still managed to have a whole lot of fun.

Participants at the 24th annual Lacombe Hospital Charity Golf Classic entered various competitions throughout their round, from the typical hole-in-one, longest drive and closest to the pin contests to more unique offerings such as the Dorf’s Longest Drive hole, which had golfers making drives from their knees using child-sized clubs.

“We try to mix it up to keep things entertaining,” said Tournament Coordinator Sherri O’Muir. “I think our golfers enjoy the opportunity to be a little less serious about their games from time to time.”

Nick Heaton of Lacombe Agencies took home the prize for the longest Dorf Drive.

For 24 years the Lacombe Hospital Charity Golf Classic has been raising funds for the local hospital, supporting patient care and comforts and providing funds for equipment enhancements.

“Our mission is to support the enhancement of health care in the community,” said Lacombe Health Trust Board Chair Jim Dixon Jr.  “This golf tournament is important to all of us at the Lacombe Health Trust and our community partners.”

The tournament has been well-supported by local businesses and sponsors, including returning presenting sponsor BAMSS Contracting Inc.

“We’re delighted that BAMSS Contracting Inc. joined the tournament again this year,” says Dixon. “A great company choosing a great cause to do genuine good in our community is a win-win in the best sense of the term.”

Bob Hancik, president of BAMSS Contracting Inc., said the company was excited to have partnered with the Lacombe Health Trust given its importance to local health care and history of purchasing equipment for the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre through funds raised at the golf tournament.

“BAMSS believes in giving back to the communities we work in and we are always looking for ways to contribute,” says Hancik. “Being able to partner with an organization like the Lacombe Health Trust to support the hospital is a perfect fit for us. We know the money raised today will make a difference.”

The tournament teed off on June 10th at the challenging and beautiful Lacombe Golf and Country Club with support from other sponsors, including DB Bobcat, Autotech Collision and Frame, NOVA Chemicals, Denick Enterprises, Lacombe Dental Clinic, Stantec and Sunny94 /Kraze101.
