Par! Calling all golfers

The tournament consists of three days of individual stroke play followed by a team scramble event on Saturday. 

Arrangements have been made to ensure proper social distancing, including assigned tee times and dining facilities set up to maximize social distancing and minimize interaction amongst unassociated participants. All staff members and participants are required to wear a facemask while indoors at the golf course clubhouse as outlined by state, city, or county ordinances. Facemasks are not required on the golf course.

Prizes and awards will be handed out during the event.

  • Accommodations for three nights, three lunches, and continental breakfast each morning. 

Additional rounds of golf and additional nights lodging are available at discounted rates. Discounted registration is available for active duty members E-6 and below, and civilian employees GS-7 and below.
