held their 15th annual golf outing at the
Savannah Lakes Village Tara Golf Club on
Monday, September 20, 2021. The outing
was attended by 64 golfers from Savannah
Lakes and McCormick County. The
tournament format was a scramble with
foursomes of men and ladies enjoying the
18 holes of golf. It started to rain heavily
during the round, but these hearty golfers
toughed it out to the end, even though they
were soaked to the skin. Hooray for all
who finished the game!

Winners of the tournament and the
special events were awarded cash prizes by
the Outing Chairman, Pat Ouellette. In
addition, many gift prizes were awarded
to golfers based on a random drawing. A • November 2021 • 19

We are local surgeons who live and practice full-time in the Lakelands community. We care for all our
patients here at the region’s largest referral hospital. You and your family members don’t need to
travel out of town. As your hometown orthopedist, we are proud to serve you and your physician when

s  urgery is needed.

High-quality and safe care for our patients is our highest priority at Self Regional. In addition, you have

a  ccess to a wide array of specialists, normally only available in much larger, metropolitan areas.

Our surgeons are board certified and several have received fellowship training in a subspecialty area;

a  nd, together, we are able to offer both general services and the extra skill associated with a specialist.

Our subspecialties include:

• Minimally invasive surgery

• Arthroscopic surgery

(microscopic joint surgery)

• Hand, foot and shoulder surgery

• Sports medicine

 • Total joint replacement

When your physician recommends

an orthopedic specialist, Orthopaedic
