GREENVILLE — Whether you drive for show or putt for dough, all golfers can chip in to support health access in rural communities by participating in Golf Day, taking place June 14 at Egypt Valley Country Club in Ada.
The Spectrum Health Foundation United and Kelsey Hospitals event will have staggered tee times and offer boxed breakfast and lunches to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols and respect social distancing between foursomes.
Proceeds from the outing will subsidize TytoCare virtual health technology for community members who most need greater access to care.
“Now more than ever, we know the true value of community and our health,” said Andrea Leslie, president of Spectrum Health United, Kelsey, Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals. “This year’s outing will support community members with chronic illness by bringing them TytoCare, an innovative way to connect people to health providers. We are so excited to see everyone again this year at Golf Day 2021.”
TytoCare uses a handheld device that allows a health care provider to examine a patient’s heart, lungs, throat, ears, skin, abdomen and more while the patient remains in their home.
Raffle prizes, first and second place trophies, proximity contests and the infamous chipping in a bed pan game are back, along with complimentary practice on the driving range before your round.
“Please join us for Golf Day 2021,” said event chair Jon Aylsworth. “It will be a great day to be back on the course with friends and colleagues.”
