Business leaders, golfers, and all who appreciate our Oklahoma Seniors, this is your opportunity to show them you care and have a fun filled day while doing so…SO SAVE THIS DATE! The First Annual Spanish Cove Golf Classic “Golf Tees Autumn Leaves” is being held Nov. 14, at the beautiful Hidden Trails Country Club. All golfers will be treated to a sit down lunch of Mexican food, prepared on site by the Hidden Trails staff before teeing off.

This event is the brainchild of Spanish Cove’s own Carl Sanders, a longtime lover of the game and a believer of paying it forward. Carl will implement his lifetime of experience organizing such events to make this a day to remember. Both he and his wife Mary Sue are actively involved in hosting this “must attend” outing.

When Carl was asked why he was putting so much time and attention into making this a golf outing to remember, he replied, “I want to celebrate our growing senior community and hopefully help make an impact in their lives.”  He also added, “We at Spanish Cove have been supporting the good causes of the community that play golf for years. We just decided that we would be the host and invite the community to join us for our good cause, the celebration of senior adults.”

Residents and business leaders who want to support their Oklahoma seniors have already started signing up to show their support, but there is still room for more. Don’t miss this opportunity to contribute to the vision. The mission at Spanish Cove is to provide purposeful, innovative, and secure life care services to our residents, while continuing to expand our vision for the future. That vision includes programs touching the lives of more seniors living outside the Spanish Cove community. It is the dream of our CEO, Don Blose, to one day offer a Senior Day Care center, but as with all programs funding is necessary.

Spanish Cove is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization and one of three life care communities in the Metro area. Life care means that you can live at Spanish Cove independently and can stay within the community to receive specialized care when needed. Spanish Cove is quite unique in that it is a non-profit and a part of the city of Yukon. It is not a privately managed property.

Nov. 14 is fast approaching, so don’t put off signing up for the 1st Annual Spanish Cove Golf Classic. The opportunities to participate range from the PLATINUM LEVEL SPONSORSHIP at $1,200, which covers the fee for four persons, signage on the course, program recognition, recognition at the tournament and luncheon signage. Then there is the GOLD LEVEL SPONSORSHIP at $1,000, which includes the team entry fee for four persons, signage on the course, program recognition and recognition at the tournament. The SILVER LEVEL SPONSORSHIP at $800 includes the team entry fee for four persons, signage on the course and program recognition.

In addition, you can participate as a Hole Sponsor at $100, a team of four at $500 or an individual at $140. Mulligans are $10 or a food donation of two cans of food items to benefit Manna Pantry and Yukon Sharing. All sponsors will be recognized in the luncheon program. Do you owe a senior adult a thank you? Well, here’s the way to say it. Contact Carl Sanders at (405)640-5437 or (405) 640-5420 or email and have a great time celebrating senior adults.
