Oceanside Hospice golf tourney tees off Saturday

20th annual benefit coming to Eaglecrest Golf Club Aug. 12

The 20th annual Oceanside Hospice Society Golf Tournament is set to tee off Saturday at Eaglecrest Golf Club in Qualicum Beach, and there is still time to get in on all the fun.

Check-in and a putting contest begin at 11:30 a.m., and the 13-hole scramble begins with a shotgun start at 1:15 p.m. Along with the round of golf, participants may take part in both live and silent auctions, a fundraising dinner, a signature drink at the “watering hole” off the ninth green, and purchase mulligans with the chance to win additional prizes.

Two hole-in-one prize holes are part of the action, with $10,000 up for grabs on Hole 13 and a car from Bluenose Motors on Hole 7.

Proceeds raised in the annual event remain in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area to help Oceanside Hospice Society provide its programs and services to local residents.

Cost is $99 per person and includes golfing, a cart and the prime rib dinner, beginning at 6:15 p.m. Extra dinner tickets for non-players are available to purchase for $35 each.
