The VINA Charity Golf Classic is back at the beautiful and exclusive Lakelands Golf & Country Club on July 18, 2022.

Important Information for the 2022 VINA Charity Golf Classic on July 18

Thank you for participating in the 2022 VINA Charity Golf Classic! We know there are many worthy causes and charity golf outings this summer; thank you for supporting VINA and the thousands of low-income, uninsured patients in our community. We are thrilled to have a record-setting number of golfers this year.

Our main purpose for the Golf Classic is to raise money for VINA and those we serve while having a blast on the course. All the money raised goes toward helping patients like Miguel, a veteran in the Victors for Veterans program who received free dental care including a new set of dentures so he can enjoy his favorite food (a rare steak) again.

We aim to provide a relaxing day full of golf, camaraderie and smiles. We have worked to make it memorable and enjoyable for you and those you are golfing with. Please let us know if there’s anything more we can do to help you have a terrific time on the course. 


Some things to be aware of before arriving at Lakelands Golf & Country Club on July 18:

Lakelands Golf & Country Club is a private club and does have a dress code that requires proper golf attire. 

The format is a four-person scramble. There will be prizes for the winning women’s team, men’s team and mixed team, sponsored by Eternity Brewing Co. It will begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. 

Registration is from 7:30 am to 8:45 am.

Mulligans are $20 per team, and you will get four. This means you get four “do-over” shots to use throughout your round of golf. These will be available to purchase at registration when you check-in.


All throughout the day, you will be able to purchase 50/50 tickets: $1 each, 15 for $10, 40 for $20. 

You get two free drinks included with your registration: each of these tickets are good for beer, wine or a mixed drink. After using your free drink tickets, you can purchase extra drink tickets for $2 each. Two tickets = select beer, three tickets = select premium beer and four tickets = house wine or mixed drinks. There are no direct cash sales of drinks at Lakelands. These tickets include tax and gratuity and are not refundable after dinner, so please use the ones you have purchased!

There will be four different tickets at the golf outing. You will receive a red and two yellow when you arrive. Red = lunch ticket, yellow = free drink tickets. 

You may purchase extra drink tickets and raffle tickets during registration and golf. Extra drink tickets = blue, 50/50 tickets = orange. 


Credit card swipers will be available during registration ONLY. Payments will be accepted for golf registration, Mulligans, drink tickets and 50/50 tickets. Registration and mulligans cannot be purchased once golf begins at 9:00 am. Extra drink tickets and 50/50 tickets are CASH ONLY after 9:00 am. Please bring cash (or checks) for all other games including the Ultimate Putt Contest and Acorn Wealth Air Cannon.

About VINA

VINA is a nonprofit dental clinic established in 2008 and located in Brighton, Michigan. All of the patients at VINA have no dental insurance and income at or below 225% of the Federal Poverty Level. The out-of-pocket cost of dental care is too great and many patients do not have access to affordable dental care without the services of VINA. 

Many patients at VINA have not had dental care in years or even decades. Many experience frequent pain and other health complications from this lack of dental care. Oral health problems can prevent patients from receiving surgery or infection, taking a toll on overall health. VINA works to provide quality dental care and education to these underserved patients to improve health and quality of life

VINA patients only pay $25 per appointment and $10 for routine hygiene visits. This reduced financial burden for patients helps restore smiles in the community. VINA is funded through special events, donations, and grants.

Services include: Oral Cancer Screenings & Oral Exams, Oral Surgery & Extractions, Fluoride Treatment, Cleanings, Fillings, X-Rays, Crowns
