Hello USNA Alumni Golfers,


The 2019 DC area Academy Challenge Golf tournament between Alumni Navy, Army and Air Force Alumni is coming up in July.  We are looking to have another good round this year.  The details are below and are similar to previous years:

Date: Monday, July 15th; shotgun start at 8:30 AM
Place: Westfields Golf Club, Clifton, VA
Cost: $130 cash or check the day of the event.  Price includes golf cart, range balls, and lunch (same menu as last year – burgers and dogs); proceeds go to Academy Alumni Associations
Format: Four-ball match play over 18 holes with full handicap; each match is for 1 point.  Ties are 1/2 a point.  The school with most points wins the Commanders’ Trophy (err ah um… picture)
Who: Graduate-only teams (target is at least 20 players, 24 or more is ideal)
Tee policy: classes ’76 and earlier may play from green tees if desire; everyone else plays from white tees
Prizes: longest drive [white tee players]; straightest drive [green tee players]; closest to the hole [separate holes for green and white tee players]
Please mark your calendars, reach out to your fellow Alumni for a teammate and if you are available to play please reply to me at kwamec96@gmail.com with your name, class # and handicap/index by June 24th so I can get a estimate on the player count.
I’ve been told that ANCC is also having their Yellow Ribbon tournament on July 15th.  We could not change the date of the Challenge.  Please don’t get the two confused and join us out at Westfields.
