Hospice Care to host golf event

Invite a friend to play the Canaan Valley Golf Classic Sunday at Canaan Valley Resort in picturesque Davis.

Hospice Care Corp. will host this worthwhile golf tournament again. All proceeds from the tournament will support the mission of Hospice Care Corp., which provides vital patient end-of-life care and support for individuals and their families here in our area.

Hospice Care is accepting sponsors at all levels of participation from prize sponsors to snack, meal, cart and individual hole sponsors. Also, businesses and individuals are encouraged to donate items for door prizes, raffles and goody bags. Every dollar raised stays here in the communities we serve. And, all contributions and donations are tax deductible.

This year, the tournament will have a different twist. The format is a two-person best ball scramble start. You can choose your team or play as an individual and be assigned with another player. There will be two divisions that the teams can register under, Open Division and Handicap Division.

In the Open Division the two-man team must have a combined handicap lower than 30. In the Handicap Division the two-man team must have a combined handicap higher than 30. All players will be up for prizes including first, second and third places in each division, closest to the pin, longest drive and longest putt. In addition, there will be chances to win prizes at designated holes for a hole in one.

The cost to play is $75 per person or $150 per team. Canaan Valley Resort season pass holders can play for $65 person or $130 per team. The event starts at 8 a.m. with registration and a 9 a.m. tee off. All participants will receive a goody bag, snacks and refreshments during play, with lunch and the award presentation immediately following.

Individual and Team registration is available by calling 1-800-350-1161 or by registering on line at For more information on sponsorship opportunities, call Christina Brown at 304-376-1392 or email
