Berlin, Md.The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce the 2019 Robert E. Warfield Memorial Tournament to benefit Atlantic General Hospital will be held on Thursday, September 26, 2019, rain or shine, at Ocean City Golf Club.

The AGH Fall Golf Classic, celebrating its twenty-sixth year, was renamed in 2016 in recognition of 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 11:00am with a 1:00pm shotgun start. Player entry fee includes cart and greens fees, boxed lunch and buffet dinner as well as snacks and beverages/cocktails on the course. Deluxe giveaways, impressive tournament awards, and team photograph are also included. Additional excitement includes a variety of on-the-course challenges with fabulous prizes and Harborside’s famous orange crush bar.

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 19th. Space is limited and earliest entries are accommodated first. Non-golfers can still join the fun—dinner and awards will begin at 5:00pm. This year’s lunch will be provided by Buxy’s Dry Dock Catering, the reception sponsored by Shenanigan’s Irish Pub & Grille, and dinner sponsored by Atlantic General Hospital Medical Staff and an anonymous sponsor.
