Golf Tournament Raises nearly $35,000 to Benefit Stuart F. Meyer Hospice House

PALM COAST, Fla., September 21, 2015 – On September 14, golfers teed-up at 13th annual Stuart F. Meyer Hospice House Golf Classic at the Hammock Dunes Links Course in Palm Coast.  
 
The event raised nearly $35,000 to benefit the Stuart F. Meyer Hospice House, located on the campus of Florida Hospital Flagler in Palm Coast. These funds will be used to support the eight-bed hospice house. 
 
Nearly 115 golfers participated in the scramble. 
 
“So many wanted to play in this year’s tournament that, for the first time in 13 years, we had to turn teams away and change the format of play to a scramble so that the tournament would move a bit faster,” said Bill Tol, Florida Hospital HospiceCare Foundation director. “A special thanks to everyone for such great support!”
 
With a score of 46.1, the winning team included Dave Franklin, Craig Straky, Rich Hottinger, and Rich Hottinger Jr.
 
The Stuart F. Meyer Hospice House opened in 2007 and is the community’s most comprehensive hospice, offering acute, respite, home health and continuous care. No other hospice in Flagler County offers all four services.
