AGH FOUNDATION TO HOLD 23RD ANNUAL FALL GOLF CLASSIC

07-26-2016

Berlin, Md. The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that its newly named Robert E. Warfield Memorial Fall Golf Classic to benefit Atlantic General Hospital will be held on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at Ocean City Golf Club.

The tournament, formerly known as the AGH Annual Fall Golf Classic, will celebrate its twenty-third year recognizing the generous commitment and loyal service of the late Robert E. Warfield, Sr. “Bob” dedicated his busy life to giving to others in service and in spirit. He was an integral member of the AGH Fall Golf Classic Committee since he joined the Foundation’s Board of Directors in 1999. A founding member of the hospital’s Board of Trustees, former Chairman of the Board of Directors for the AGH Foundation, he was also a member and served on the board of directors for the Ocean City Golf and Yacht Club and on the board of directors for the Maryland Economic Development Corporation and Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund.

For local golfers this tournament has become an annual tradition, with last year’s event raising $105,000 to expand health care services and programs for our community through our local hospital. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. with a 1:00 p.m. shotgun start. Player entry fee includes lunch and dinner as well as beverages on the course. Deluxe gift bags, exciting course challenges and impressive tournament prizes are also included. Lunch this year will be provided by Bad Monkey OC Bar & Grill. Dough Roller Restaurants will provide dinner at the post-tournament banquet.

As in years past, each team can choose their course/format - Newport Bay/Best Ball or Seaside/Scramble. Team reservations can be submitted via our website and must be received by September 15th. Space is limited and earliest entries are accommodated first. Non-golfers can still join the fun—dinner, awards, and live auction will begin at 5:00 p.m.

Players and guests can take part in a silent auction featuring exciting baskets and unique prize items including a complimentary entry into the 43rd Annual White Marlin Open. The auction is open to the public and the winners will be announced at the post-tournament dinner and reception.

New sponsorship opportunities are available for this year and many include complimentary golfers, ad space, logo placement, ample signage and recognition on select gift bag items.
