Golf for a Good Cause: Pennybyrn Tournament Offers Big Prizes and Helps Skilled Nursing Residents

Area golfers have the opportunity to win cash, a new vehicle, and other prizes at Pennybyrn’s Ninth Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Sept. 20, 2019. Pennybyrn, a non-profit life plan community, has a long history of caring for older adults, regardless of a person’s financial means. All proceeds from the golf tournament benefit the community’s resident care fund, which helps skilled nursing residents who have exhausted their own financial resources. 

“For over 70 years, the mission of Pennybyrn has been to ‘demonstrate God’s love for the lives we touch’” says Rich Newman, Pennybyrn President. “We seek to live out our mission every day by striving to make lives better for those we serve, whether in Retirement Living, Transitional Rehab, Assisted Living or in our Healthcare Households. In particular, we continue to offer the same compassionate, quality care to all of our Healthcare Household residents regardless of their ability to pay. This is an important part of our mission, and the golf tournament is a vital part of achieving that.”

The tournament will be held at the Jamestown Park Golf Course at 7041 East Fork Road in Jamestown, NC.  A putting contest offers golfers the chance to win $10,000, and a hole-in-one contest provides an opportunity to win a brand new Chrysler, Dodge, or Jeep from Ilderton Chrysler Dodge Jeep. There will also be prizes for the team with the lowest net score and the lowest gross score; the longest drive for the categories of men, women and seniors; and closest to the pin, as well as raffle prizes from local businesses. 

The tournament day includes breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. A complimentary beverage cart is available on the course. An after-golf party and awards ceremony will be held at the Community Center at Pennybyrn, 109 Penny Road in High Point, NC. 

Play is Captain’s Choice, and a team handicap will be subtracted from the final score. Entry fees are $95 per player, with $50 of the fee being tax-deductible. A team of four may enter for $380. To register, download the tournament brochure and complete the form.
