Robert S. Adcock, MBA, FACHE, CEO of Springfield Hospital sharing thanks to the participants and sponsors for their support of the 2021 Golf Challenge.

SPRINGFIELD, VT (September 16, 2021)  – Springfield Hospital hosted its 21st Annual Golf Challenge on September 14th at the Fox Run Golf Club in Ludlow, Vermont. Proceeds from this year’s fundraising event go to the annual giving campaign to support the Defibrillator Equipment Fund.

Ninety tournament participants enjoyed a variety of competitions on the course in addition to 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play. A 2021 Cadillac was up for grabs for a hole-in-one on hole 8, thanks to Springfield Buick GMC Cadillac; and ten thousand dollars was available on hole 17 for a hole-in-one, thanks to Ludlow Insurance Agency. We did not give either of these big prizes away this year, but we could not have asked for a nicer day to play golf in the splendid beauty of Vermont.

Winners in the A and B Flights were as follows:
A Flight
1st Low Gross – Dan Patria, Mary Patria, Jeff Matulonis, Cole Lewis
2nd Low Gross – Dr. Rick Marasa, Christina Graves, Chris Garvey, Brian Perkins
