Hale’s Location Golf Course, Hale’s Location Owners Association, The White Mountain Hotel & Resort and Jonathan Rivers of the Indian Mound Golf Course will host three 9-hole shotgun golf tournaments on Thursday, August 28, 2014 at the Hale’s Location Golf Course in Hale’s Location, NH to support the Wayne L. Sprouse Medical Expenses Fund. The tournament will be followed by a dinner at the White Mountain Hotel and will feature a silent and live auction. This fund has been established to help Hale’s Location Golf Pro, Wayne Sprouse who has been presented with some serious medical challenges.
Wayne Sprouse the Head Golf Professional and Pro Shop Manager for Hale’s Location Golf Course joined our team in the spring of 2013. Wayne has lived in the Mt. Washington Valley since 1997 and resides in North Conway with his wife Karen and their two children Cody and Timothy. Wayne is former golf shop owner himself, previously owning Dave’s Golf Shop. He is an avid golfer and was a 2002 participant in the NH State Amateur. Wayne holds the Hale’s Location 9-hole course record of 33, along with former Pro, Jonathan Rivers.
In the spring of 2014, after dealing with some unusual symptoms throughout the winter, Wayne was given the unfortunate diagnosis of ALS or “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. In dealing with this diagnosis and the many tests, procedures and doctor visits that ensued, Wayne was then given news that no one could ever be prepared for. He was also diagnosed with Stage-3 Follicular Cancer. The rigorous journey of chemotherapy, medical therapy and physical therapy has begun for Wayne and his family. The Team at Dana Farber Cancer Institute is guiding his care, and we are confident that he is in the best hands possible. Now he needs our help.
This tournament has been established to support the Wayne L. Sprouse Medical Expenses Fund that has been established at the Northway Bank in North Conway, NH. This fund will help to defray the growing costs of Wayne’s medical expenses that are not covered by insurance. It should be noted that The Hale’s Location Golf Course and The White Mountain Hotel & Resort are donating 100% of the tournament fees collected to this Fund.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for local businesses and individuals. Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze hole-sponsorships are available, as well as, gift bag sponsors, beverage cart sponsors and more.
