Our annual golf tournament is a unique golfing experience you won't find anywhere else. With flyovers, tanks, jeeps, and reenactors dressed in WWII uniforms protecting the fairways, there is never a dull moment on the course. Our players get the unique opportunity to play the prestigious Boot Ranch Course located north of Fredericksburg. Usually available to only members of the club, Boot Ranch opens it's course for one day to help raise money for the Admiral Nimitz Foundation and National Museum of the Pacific War.
This year we are splitting up the tournament and the dinner and evening entertainment. The dinner, auction, and entertainment at the historic Admiral Nimitz Museum will begin on Thursday, June 7th at 5:00 with cocktails on the patio followed by dinner and auction. The night will end with live entertainment back on the patio.
Friday morning players are encouraged to start showing up at 8:00 to get registered and get a few practice swings in. At 9:45 will be welcoming remarks, course rules, followed by a flyover of WWII aircraft that will kick off the tournament. Food and beverages will be available throughout the course for players to enjoy.
As always we will be giving away a brand new Mercedes to whoever sinks a hole-in-one on hole 5, which is a par 3.
