Schoodic Scramble slated for Sept. 10

WINTER HARBOR The 19th annual Schoodic Scramble charity golf event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Grindstone Neck Golf Course.

Golfers will enjoy 18 holes of golf, a continental breakfast, lobster stew, ice cream sundaes, wine, cheese, a tournament hat, a hole-in-one opportunity as well as prizes for men’s, ladies’ and couples’ flights.

Proceeds from the Schoodic Scramble will benefit the Eleanor Widener Dixon Memorial Clinic in Gouldsboro — a family practice clinic of Maine Coast Memorial Hospital. Funds raised will be used to outfit a new patient care room.

Since 1997, more than $200,000 has been raised for facility improvements and medical equipment to further advance quality patient care.

Presenting sponsors of the Schoodic Scramble are Edith Dixon and Vicki and Alan Goldstein, with featured sponsors from Darling’s Chevrolet, Sorrento Dental Associates, the First National Bank, Winter Harbor Food Service, Rooster Brother, Kelco Industries, Dahl-Chase Pathology Associates, Merrill Furniture, Garbo Lobster, and Stanley Scooters.

Friday, July 29, was the 125-year anniversary celebration of the Grindstone Neck golf course. Built in 1891, Grindstone Neck is one of the 100 oldest golf courses in the nation. Grindstone Neck Association has donated the use of the golf course for the clinic’s fundraiser for the past 19 years.
