GLOVERSVILLE — The Nathan Littauer Foundation’s 2019 Adirondack Challenge, a golf tournament supporting the hospital’s mission for improved access to world-class healthcare, will be held July 12 at the Lake Pleasant Golf Club.

“This event celebrates the Hamilton County area’s support of Littauer services in the North County. Without our Primary Care Center in Speculator many people would have no access to safe, affordable and convenient healthcare,” said Geoff Peck, executive director of the Foundation in a news release. “We look forward to this event every year and it also happens to be a really fun day of golf.”

The shotgun start is at 8 a.m. and teams will play a scrambled format. The cost is $110 per person and includes 18 holes of golf, golf cart, breakfast, on-course food and drinks, prizes and lunch at the Inn at Speculator.

Golfers will compete in two divisions — up to age 65 and 65 and older. Foursomes are welcome to join or single golfers and couples will be teamed up with a foursome.

As a thank-you gift, this year each player may choose either a complimentary round of golf at Hales Mills Country Club or a round of golf with a cart at Lake Pleasant Golf Course.

“Those who would like to enjoy an inspired lunch at the Inn at Speculator can join us at $50 per person,” said Kelly Colby, the foundation coordinator. “And as always, all levels of sponsorships are still available.”

The Adirondack Challenge will benefit continued growth and upgrades to Nathan Littauer Hospital’s Primary/Specialty Care network.

“We are asking for support to bring a new Medical Arts Building on the Littauer Hospital campus to fruition,” said Peck. “Our community needs improved access to world-class medical care. This 12,000 square-foot facility will greatly increase the ease and efficiency of our patients’ primary care experience.”
