Dear Island Hospital Golf Classic Team Captains & Golfers:

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 18th Annual Island Hospital Golf Classic for another overwhelmingly successful day of golf and camaraderie to benefit the Island Hospital Foundation!

I wanted to share with you the schedule of our day’s events.

Location:  Skagit Golf & Country Club
                  16701 Country Club Drive
                  Burlington, WA 98233

Bag Drop: We will have volunteers available to assist golfers with getting your golf bags out of cars. Please follow “Bag Drop” signage to drop your bags and then park your cars. 

Registration: Opens at 10am

Lunch: Available 10am-11:15am

Shotgun Start: 11:30am Sharp!

19th Hole: 5pm-5:45pm

Awards Banquet: 5:45pm-7:00pm

Based on golfer feedback, we have made a few changes to the Awards Dinner in the hopes of “moving along the presentation” in a more timely manner to get those players who come from the Seattle area on the road a bit earlier. This year, we will begin the dinner 15 minutes earlier and offer a buffet dinner rather than plated dinner. Once all players are seated, we will begin our Awards Dinner. 

As always we will have our on course competitions, raffle prizes & silent auction.  Please remember to bring some “pocket change” to participate in the on course competitions which will benefit the Foundation! 

Here are a few highlights of what you will see available with our raffle and silent auction:


Buy $40 worth of raffle tickets and receive a FREE Mulligan! Only available until 11:30am.

Grand Raffle Prize: Ping G400 Iron Set, Ping G400 Driver, two Cleveland Wedges, 1 Ping Hoofer Traverse Golf Bag, 1 Clicgear 3.5+ Push Cart     Value: $1,600


Funds raised through the silent auction will help sustain vital programs at Island Hospital. Get your pen ready and check in frequently because there will be strong competition for these items!

 Drive a Porsche for the Weekend!

Treat yourself and impress your friends with your choice of a Porsche Boxster, Cayenne, Panamera, or Cayman for the weekend. Wind along scenic Chuckanut Drive in route to enjoy a meal at The Oyster Bar located in beautiful Bow, Washington. Then make a pit stop at Melvin Brewery in Bellingham. Also included: Shell Gas Certificates.
Value: $1,175      Starting Bid: $500

 Stay & Play at Gamble Sands

The fairways are huge and the views are even bigger. Named Golfweek’s #1 course to play in Washington State and designed David McLay Kidd, Gamble Sands is a true links course set in the high desert on the banks of the Columbia River. With traditional fine fescue grasses, wide fairways, and massive greens, enjoy two rounds of golf and a one-night stay at The Inn at Gamble Sands in Brewster, Washington.
Value: Priceless!               Starting Bid: $500

 Rest, Refresh and Relax on Orcas Island
At the junction of two designated scenic byways, enjoy a two-night stay at the treasured Kingfish Inn. Just steps away from the sparking waters of West Sound and a leisurely stroll from the bucolic Verdant farmlands of Crow Valley. Be inspired by amazing views of West Sound, the marina, and the multitudes of islands beyond with the snow topped Olympic Mountain Range in the distance. Sail boat races, float plane landings, bunnies, deer, sea birds, and if lucky, whales are all part of the experience. Hang your legs out on the county dock (a minute away) and feel all your tensions melt away.  
Value: $500                        Starting Bid: $200
