Community Continues Tradition of 'Golfin' for Good Sam'
Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor’s annual golf tournament,“Golfin’ for Good Sam,” is scheduled to return in May—continuing a long-standing tradition of benefiting seniors in need.
The event will take place Saturday, May 6 at Winfield Country Club (2916 Country Club Road) with registration running from 7:30 – 9a.m. and tee-off at 9:30 a.m. Proceeds from the tournament benefit PMMA’s Good Samaritan Program which provides financial support for local Presbyterian Manor residents who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their financial resources.
“The Good Samaritan Program is our promise to our residents,” said Sarah Griggs, executive director. “They are more than just people to us – they are parents and grandparents, friends and neighbors.”
A popular attraction at the tournament is the Karl Faidley Golf Ball Drop during which golf balls representing purchased opportunities are dropped from a bucket truck, with the three golf balls landing closest to the stake winning a prize. The fundraiser, which is scheduled for 9:15 a.m., is named in memory of Karl Faidley, the husband of Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor resident Dorothy Faidley and along-time volunteer and supporter of the golf tournament.
“We are excited to continue our tournament and ball drop traditions this year after we had a record-breaking year in 2022,”said Sarah. “We are so thankful for the support of our community.”
The tournament itself is a four-player scramble with a$100 registration fee per player which includes green fees, cart and lunch.
