The Madelia Health Foundation 17th Annual Golf Outing was held on Wednesday, June 8th. Since bringing back in-person golfing in 2021 after the COVID-19 pandemic, this tournament has been extremely popular and highly successful for Madelia Health. 72 golfers (a full roster) were on the course in support of Madelia Health. The golf outing raised over $18,900, the most in our history for this event! The proceeds will be used to purchase new cardiac monitoring equipment.

There were also nine Hole Co-sponsors, and over 20 volunteers from the Madelia Health Governing Board, Foundation Board, caregivers and the community. Many others donated to the event. The evening included nine holes of golf, hole-in-one and flag contests, a golf ball roll contest, prize raffle and a dinner.
The Golden Bedpan Golf Ball Roll started out the evening and was sponsored by Christensen Communications. Norma Krumwiede was the winner of the $500 prize!
Flag contest winners from this year’s outing were as follows:
- Longest Putt: Steve Cooling
- Closest to the pin: David Krause
- Women’s Longest Drive: Laura Sorenson
- Men’s Longest Drive: Carson Wihlm
The “Hole In One” Contest was again held on Hole 8, but no one was able to claim the $25,000 toward a Ford vehicle, sponsored by Madelia Ford and Pioneer Bank.
The Foundation awarded cash prizes to the first, ninth and sixteenth place teams. The First Place Team was Team Cerny. The 9th Place team was Industrial Services Inc., and the 16th Place Team was Hopman Farms.
Thank you to the many businesses and individuals who donated to make this event successful! A special thanks to Tony Downs Food for donating the chicken breasts for the dinner and Madelia Health Dietary for making the meal. It was a fantastic night on the course with humor, great weather, camaraderie and impressive golf.
