National Cancer Golf Scramble

The National Cancer Scramble, held on Sunday, May 7, proved to be a tremendous success as 92 golfers gathered on the pristine greens of Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club to raise funds for the Turks and Caicos Cancer Society. The event brought together golf enthusiasts from across the region, combining a passion for the sport with a commitment to fighting cancer. With 23 teams participating and generous sponsorship, over $20,000 was raised, showcasing the power of community support in making a difference.

The tournament featured an impressive display of skill and determination, with each golfer contributing to the cause. The team comprising Graham Canham, Murad Mohamad, Syed Hassan, and Vaughan Paisley emerged as the champions, posting a remarkable net score of 54.88. Their achievement symbolizes both the spirit of competition and the shared goal of supporting those affected by cancer.

Additionally, the National Cancer Scramble was not only a fundraising success but also a fun-filled tournament that kept participants engaged and entertained throughout the day. The event organizers incorporated unique and exciting rules on various holes, adding an element of unpredictability to the competition.  For example the 3rd where participants were limited to using only a single golf club throughout the entire play. It sparked laughter, camaraderie, and friendly banter among the teams as they strategized and made the best of their limited options.

In addition to the competitive aspect, the event highlighted outstanding individual performances. Kurt Rivers stood out with an extraordinary drive, winning the title of the longest drive among the male participants. Michelle Patterson, hit the longest drive among the female participant, and Owen Barkworth displayed exceptional talent, clinching the title of the longest drive among the junior participants.

Beyond the on-course achievements, the success of the National Cancer Scramble can be attributed to the overwhelming support of sponsors who generously contributed to the event. Their support demonstrates a shared commitment to combatting cancer and providing vital resources for the Turks and Caicos Cancer Society.

The funds raised through this event will be instrumental in supporting the Turks and Caicos Cancer Society’s ongoing efforts to improve cancer awareness, provide vital services to those affected by the disease, and contribute to advancements in cancer research. The impact of this generous contribution will be felt throughout the community, ensuring that individuals battling cancer receive the care and support they need.
