Baptist Health’s Bolo Bash Golf Tournament Returns; All-Female Team Competition Added

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Baptist Health Foundation’s Bolo Bash Golf Tournament returns for its 33rd year on Sept. 25 and 26 at Chenal Country Club in Little Rock. Simmons Bank is the presenting sponsor. 

One of Central Arkansas’ largest charity golf events, the scramble format tournament, hosts an average of over 400 golfers and features breakfast, an expansive lunch buffet,  contests, prizes and a $75 gift certificate to shop at the golf pop-up store for each participant. And for the first time, the Bolo Bash Golf Tournament will feature an all-female team competition.

Co-chairs for the 2023 Bolo Bash Golf Tournament are Anthony Brooks and Matt Olson.

Proceeds raised from this year’s event will be used to renovate and expand Baptist Health’s maternal and newborn areas, including the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and strengthen the health care system’s ability to care for more women and children in Arkansas.

As the leader in Arkansas when it comes to taking care of women and babies during one of the most critical health moments in their lives, Baptist Health delivers 7,000 babies annually system-wide, which is 30% more babies than any other hospital in the state.

Baptist Health cares for the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. The healing ministry’s vision is to remain responsive to the state’s unmet needs by addressing shortages in specialty providers and patient beds and expanding services. Proceeds will provide the resources needed to achieve Baptist Health’s vision and give compassion, hope and healing to Arkansans wherever they live. 

Baptist Health Foundation provides financial support to advance the healing ministry of Baptist Health through purposeful and philanthropic partnerships.
