Local charity to host inaugural golf “Torment”

The Homecare & Hospice Foundation is set to host its inaugural charity golf tournament next week and Golf Committee Chairman, Kevin Fateley, guarantees this tournament will be unlike any other.

“We’ve set this tournament up to be very different, one in which your skill level is irrelevant. Each hole will “torment” the players in unique and fun ways. Really, it’s about having a good time and supporting a great organization” said Fateley.

The tournament will be played at Colbert Hills Golf Course and each of the 18 holes will feature a different challenge or obstacle. On one hole golfers will be required to use their non-dominant hand, on another ‘Foot Golf’ will be the challenge as players tee off by kicking a soccer ball.

Christina Nolte, Director of Development for Homecare & Hospice said the motivation behind the tournament was to create an event that was purely for the fun of the game. “The mission of our organization is to Honor Every Moment in Life and I loved the idea of a tournament that is about enjoying the game and laughs you’ll have with your fellow players, regardless of whether you’re a seasoned golfer or brand new to the game.”

The tournament will be held on Thursday, June 19, with a 1 p.m. check in time and a 2 p.m. shotgun start. Individual and Team entries are welcome. Golfers may enter the tournament by calling (785) 537-0688 or by visiting

All proceeds from the tournament benefit Homecare & Hospice, a local non-profit organization that provides in home care, home health and hospice services as well as operates The Good Shepherd Hospice House.
