Area golfers all know the arrival of spring means it’s time for the Carl and Pearl Hagel Memorial Golf Tournament at Mountain Aire Golf Club. This is the 18th year of the tournament.


This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, April 27 and all proceeds will go to directly to benefit the Ashe County Free Medical Clinic.


The format is captain’s choice with two shotgun starts scheduled for 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. A $75 entry fee covers green and cart fees plus a fabulous meal. Mulligans can also be purchased. Finally, there’s an opportunity to win a one-year free membership at Mountain Aire Golf Club and a new car.


Businesses and individuals can also support the Ashe County Free Medical Clinic even if they are not golfing. Tournament sponsorships are available for $750 and team sponsorships are $300. In addition, hole sponsorships are only $100, and all sponsors will receive prominent recognition and advertising on the Clinic’s web site.


The Ashe Free Medical Clinic serves the needs of the county’s medically uninsured and is a non-profit, volunteer organization solely supported through grants and private donations. The clinic can provide $7 worth of services to its patients for every $1 donated.
