TCMH Healthcare Foundation hosted its 17th Annual TCMH Charitable Golf Tournament sponsored by Simmons Bank on Saturday, June 10, at the Houston Municipal Golf Course. With a full bracket of 36 teams participating, the Foundation raised an unprecedented $23,683.65, beating the previous record set just last year.
“This is the third consecutive year that we’ve shattered our all-time fundraising record,” Jeff Gettys, President of the TCMH Healthcare Foundation, said. “Our success is a testament to the incredible generosity of our community and our shared commitment to quality healthcare.”
The tournament featured an exciting 18-hole two-person scramble, divided into four flights. Winners were announced across the Championship Flight, A-Flight, B-Flight, and C-Flight. Cash prizes were awarded to the top three teams in each category.
Winners of the Simmons Bank Championship Flight were Dr. Steve Hawkins and Gary York. Darren Petrus and Scott Kelly claimed second place, while the duo Jackie Smith and Lee Smith secured third place.
The A-Flight, sponsored by West Plains Bank & Trust, saw Stace Holland & Colton Holland clinch the first position. Preston Wade & Logan Cantrell finished in second place, with Danny Bandy & Alan Johnson finishing third.
David Cox & Jennie Cox won the Town & Country Bank-sponsored B-Flight, followed by David Snodgrass & Jeff Butler in second place and Doug Jones & Donna Jones in third.
In the C-Flight, sponsored by Justin Shelby State Farm, Kevin Crowley & Bill Crowley secured first place. Justin Burks & Ben Denbow clinched second, while James Huff & David Hood finished third.
Additional contests around the course added an extra level of excitement. David Hood and Jackie Smith came out on top in the Closest to the Pin competition at Hole #3. Colton Holland landed within an inch of the pin in the Online Metal Supply’s Big Advantage Hole, while Alan Keeling and Jackie Smith claimed victory in the Longest Putt contest at Hole #6. Jasper Warren won the Piney River Ford – Vegas Par-3, and the Longest Drive Competition at Hole #9 saw Dr. Steve Hawkins and Jackie Smith drive the farthest.
“Our corporate underwriters, Town & Country Bank, Justin Shelby State Farm, West Plains Bank & Trust, and Dynamic Construction Systems were instrumental in this year’s success,” Gettys stated. “We’re also grateful to the numerous local businesses and individual sponsors who made this event possible.”
Proceeds from the tournament will provide scholarships for healthcare-related occupations and resources for capital projects. The TCMH Healthcare Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure quality healthcare services at Texas County Memorial Hospital.
“We remain committed to our mission of ensuring quality healthcare services for all our community members,” Gettys said. “Thanks to the continued support of our donors and participants, we look forward to hosting another record-breaking tournament in 2024.”
