Florida Hospital Fish Memorial's Physicians' Memorial Golf Classic
Florida Hospital Fish Memorial invites all golfers to the 2012 Physicians' Memorial Golf Classic on Monday, Nov. 5, at Oceanside Country Club in Ormond Beach.
The country club 75 N. Halifax Drive was built in 1907 and enjoys a rich history. The course was a favorite of John D. Rockefeller, President Warren G. Harding, Henry Flagler and Will Rogers.
The private club is also host to the Women's South Atlantic Amateur Championship, or as it is better known, the SALLY. Recently, the course was renovated by Bobby Weed, whose website notes that the Oceanside's "stiff ocean breeze, firm fairways and close-cut surrounds, offer shot makers an engaging, links-like test in a more temperate climate."
Since its inception, the Physicians' Memorial Golf Classic has netted $78,418.
