Big Bart Golf Tournament Ready for 10th Year

Not much has changed in the past 10 years.
For Loren “Bart” Bartholomew, that means the dedication to the cause of hospice services has remained strong for a decade, now.
“What I have been fortunate enough to see over the past 10 years is the dedication of the participants,” said Bartholomew as he prepares to host the 10th annual Big Bart Golf Tournament benefiting the Washington County Hospice and the Haynes House of Hope on Sunday, Sept. 19, at the Skene Valley Country Club with tee times starting at 8 a.m. (no shotgun starts).


“The event has gained momentum and will gain a few more players each year,” Bartholomew continued. “We have a good, large group of golfers who are here because they are supportive to the cause and while they are having a good time, they believe in what they are going out to help.”
The Big Bart Golf Tournament started in 2000 in memory of Loren “Bart” Bartholomew Sr., who died in 1999 after a short battle with cancer. Bartholomew said the services of Washington County Hospice were vital to his family.
“It’s a cause that we hope no one ever has to use but it is a reality in this world,” he said. “It’s great to see that, after 10 years, there are still people who step up to support the event.”
Fees for the tournament are $75 per person and $300 per team, which includes greens fee, cart, door prize ticket and luncheon buffet. Those who want to attend the buffet only can pay $20 for a spot, which starts at 1:30 p.m., with the awards ceremony for the tournament to follow at 3 p.m.
There will also be coffee and donuts in the morning to “help wake up your swinging arm,” according to Bartholomew, along with the chance to win $10,000 to any “hole-in-one” winner.
“I would love to see that happen, especially on the 10th year of the event,” said Bartholomew.
Along with the chance to win a door prize, there will also be a 50-50 raffle and a Chinese auction.
