Special to The News-Herald , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Grinnell Regional Medical Center invites the public to its 28th annual golf outing on Friday, July 14, at the Oakland Acres Golf Club. The public may register to golf. This year's outing will support medical and wellness equipment in the medical center.

The GRMC Auxiliary will host its Golf Ball Drop following the golf outing. Individuals may purchase golf balls that are dropped from a helicopter hovering over the fairway of the18th hole. The person whose ball lands in the prize hole wins $5,000. The auxiliary will have multiple prizes and holes on the course.

The GRMC golf outing format is a four-player, best shot tournament. A special recognition award will be given to the "Best Dressed Man" and "Best Dressed Woman" titles to individuals.

GRMC will award team prizes for four flights of three teams. Prizes will also be awarded for unique contests at most holes along the course. The contests at each hole will be chosen depending on the conditions and challenges that each hole offers, such as longest drive, longest putt, and closest to the bed pan. Golfers may also pay to move up.

"Each year our team works to create a fun event and this year is no exception," says Todd C. Linden, GRMC president and CEO. "With the 18-hole format at Oakland Acres Golf Course, players will enjoy contests at each hole. These are all in the name of raising funds for GRMC and building relationships with the community and GRMC. We welcome all to come out."

Entry fee for the tournament is $85 per person and cart rental is $30. Registration deadline is July 5. Online registration can be found at

The mid-day meal, afternoon refreshments, and beverages on the course will be provided. Oakland Acres will offer a special menu in the evening as well as live music to entertain the Auxiliary's ball drop participants.
