Silverthorn golf tournament to benefit Hernando-Pasco Hospice

SPRING HILL — The men's and women's Silverthorn golf associations will host their 12th annual tournament to support Hernando-Pasco Hospice on April 16 at Silverthorn Country Club, 4550 Golf Club Lane. The event is sponsored by the Hernando County State Farm agents.

A shotgun start will be at 8:30 a.m. Registration is $45 for Silverthorn club members and $80 for nonmembers. An awards luncheon will follow the tournament.

There will also be a $10,000 hole-in-one contest on the eighth hole, in which the golfer will receive $5,000 and hospice will receive the other $5,000. Anyone who gets a hole-in-one on one of the other par 3s will receive prizes such as a set of golf clubs, a computer or a Bose music system. There will also be raffles.

Hole sponsorships are available for $100 and memorial hole sponsorships for $50.

There will also be a "mystery million-dollar contest" in which participants can test their putting skills for a chance to win $1 million. The cost to enter the contest is $5; one does not have to enter the tourney to enter this contest. In this contest, participants purchase $5 raffle tickets, in which five will be drawn to compete in a putting contest.

The winner of the contest will have a chance to hit a ball on the ninth hole; if it is a hole-in-one, the player will win $1 million.

Proceeds from the tourney will be directed toward Silverthorn's pledge to name a lanai after its community at hospice's new Hospice Care Center on Cortez Boulevard.

To register, play the mystery million or to be a hole sponsor, call Bobbie Joseph at (352) 797-0846.

Those wishing to donate a raffle prize can call Ruby Foust at (352) 799-2604.
