5/18/2013 Annual Jim Thielen Memorial Golf Tournament – Tomah VA
The Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center will host the 8th Annual Jim Thielen Memorial Golf Tournament on Saturday, May 18 at the Tomah VA Golf course. Registration of the two and four person teams will begin at 9 a.m. The tournament will be kicked off with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. The registration fee includes lunch at 12:30 p.m. following the tournament. The cost is $25 per player. Caddies are available for $5 per player. All fees will be paid on the day of the tournament. For $50, a business, organization or individual can sponsor a hole and be recognized for doing so. Thielen, who passed away in June 2005, was the roads and grounds foreman at the Tomah VA from 1991 until his retirement in April 2005. One of Thielen’s major accomplishments at the Tomah VA was converting the facility’s nine-hole golf course from a patient-only course to a course open to the public. This transformation took place in 1996 when VA appropriated funding could no longer be used to support golf courses. To make the Veterans Golf Course at the Tomah VA self-sufficient, the course was opened on a fee basis to the public. The tournament is the Tomah VA’s way of remembering Thielen’s contributions to keep the golf course open and available to the Veterans receiving care at the facility and sharing it with the community. All the proceeds from the golf tournament will benefit the Veterans Golf Course, helping to offset operational costs. For more information about the golf tournament, or to register to play, please call the VA Voluntary Services office at (608) 372-1727.
