For the first time, Oklahoma ASDA is partnering with Good Shepherd Ministries for the 2017 ASDA Open Wide Golf Tournament. Good Shepherd Clinic is a well-equipped medical and dental home for hundreds of uninsured adults. The dental clinic offers extractions, dentures, and a children’s dental clinic to offer cleanings and fillings. It is staffed with the equivalence of one full-time dentist, two dental assistants, and one hygienist. Their services are multiplied through the work of volunteer dentist, dental students, and hygiene students. Every Good Shepherd medical patient receives dental care, and the dental clinic continues to reach deep into the community by offering weekly free extraction nights.
The mission of Good Shepherd Ministries is on par with the qualities that make a great dentist, and being able to give back to such an organization is an opportunity we are deeply proud to be a part of. We look forward to hosting record-breaking numbers this year in student participation, alumni participation, and involvement and presence of our sponsors.
Please consider this invitation to participate with us for a fun morning for a meaningful cause.
special thanks to our sponsors

- Scramble rules: Each team member will tee off on each hole and then decide the best tee shot. The best spot determined will be marked with either a ball marker or a ball. The other team members will pick up their balls and play the next shot from the marked location. Play continues until the first ball is holed-out or the maximum score of bogey is reached. The team then records one score for each hole and maintains the same format for all 18 holes.
- In the event of a tie in score, a hole’s number will be drawn at random and the team recording the lowest score on that hole will be declared the winner. In the event the score is still tied, a progression will begin from that hole until the tie is broken. For example, if hole number 6 is drawn and the score is still tied, scores on hole number 7 will be used to break the tie, and so on.
- Count ALL applicable penalties, including drops and balls out-of-bound (beyond the fences and white posts).
- Scoring is on the honor system. Please remember this is for charity and in the spirit of fun, but fair, competition.
Longest drive: the ball must be in the fairway (first cut of rough is NOT considered fairway) after the first tee shot to count.
Closest to the hole: the ball must be on the green after the first tee shot to count.
In the event of a team ending up with only 3 players the day of the tournament, each player will take turn substituting as the 4th player every 6 holes. For example, player D is missing from a team of players A, B, C & D. Player A will take the 4th shots (drive, approach, putt, etc.) for holes 1-6. Player B will then rotate to take the 4th shots for holes 7-12 and C will rotate in for holes 13-18.
