Penny Jones Open Golf Tournament

A message from Rebecca Smith on Sept. 8, 2021:

Yesterday, we reported that LMH Health lost three COVID inpatients over the weekend. All told, our teams have weathered four losses over the past week. Inpatient stats were the highest they’ve been all year – equal to our numbers on Jan. 8. In the community, numbers continue to climb. All of this is weighing heavily on the minds of our providers, staff and Foundation team.

While we are confident that the safety precautions we put into place for Penny Jones would allow the event to proceed with minimal risk to our players, it simply doesn’t feel right to host an in-person gathering right now—no matter how worthy the cause. With this in mind, our physician co-chairs have recommended that we cancel Friday’s tournament.

We will truly miss seeing you on Friday. Thank you for your understanding, and thank you for supporting your community hospital. We are incredibly grateful for all you make possible. 

With best regards,

Since 1982, the tournament has brought local business and community leaders together in support of our nonprofit, safety-net hospital.

Tournament Safety

We’re making a number of changes that will allow us to proceed safely in light of the pandemic.

  • Instead of morning and afternoon flights, players will be assigned tee times starting at 7:30 a.m. This is a COVID-19 safety measure to reduce large group gatherings at the clubhouse.
  • Breakfast and lunch will be served as boxed meals.
  • We will not host an awards ceremony in the evening — winners will be announced as soon as possible via email and our website.

We appreciate your help in keeping our community safe!

Thank you, golfers!

On behalf of LMH Health Foundation, thank you for joining us at the 2019 Penny Jones Open Golf Tournament! We are pleased to announce that with your help, the tournament raised over $100,000. Proceeds from the event made possible the purchase of all new EKG machines for LMH Health.

We’d also like to thank all of our sponsors, including McDonald’s, Hog Wild Pit BBQ, and O'Malley Beverage for the great food and drink, and Lake Quivira Country Club for prizes.
