The Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation held its 2022 Charity Golf Classic on Friday, Sept. 23, at Burnt Pine Golf Club in Sandestin. The tournament raised $218,145 for a new CT scanner at Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast to better serve adult and pediatric patients.
The CT scanner, arriving in late 2022, will enhance the experience of patients with its speed and image quality. For example, an entire adult chest, abdomen and pelvis study can be conducted in approximately one second so patients don’t need to hold their breath. This speed also reduces the amount of radiation, therefore improving safety. The quality of images produced from the machine allows for better detection of lesions and abnormalities to ensure more accurate diagnosis.
A total of 27 teams played in the tournament with the Berkshire Hathaway/PenFed Team winning first place. The event was supported by our presenting sponsors; Grand Boulevard, Howard Group and Silver Sands Premium Outlets. The 2023 tournament will be held Friday, September 29 at Burnt Pine Golf Club.

Since 2002, the Charity Golf Classic has raised more than $3 million for various expansion efforts at Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast including; the Olson Women’s Diagnostic Center, the Family Birth Place, the Judy & Steve Turner Heart and Vascular Center, Cancer Center, the Emergency Department and the Comprehensive Spine Program.
