The Us for Warriors Foundation, or more commonly known as “Us4Warriors,” will be holding its Annual Golf4Warriors Battle Bogey Tournament on Friday March 3 starting at 10 a.m. on the Admiral Baker Golf Course. Recently receiving the 2016 Veterans Allegiance Award from Veterans Museum and Memorial Center to be recognized as Top Veterans Non-Profit in San Diego County, Us4Warriors continues to make great strides to support the troops, veterans and their families.
“Golf4Warriors is a way for those who have served to come together as a team again… in a fun-filled, spirited way that just happens to raise much needed funds to help our warriors, past and present,” says Tony Stewart, CEO/President of Us4Warriors.
Us4Warriors is a 501c3 non-profit that is dedicated to supporting the members of our armed forces, veteran’s and their families. During any given month, volunteers from Us4Warriors (they are all unpaid volunteers) can be found across our county providing programs and services that support our veteran’s community. Golf4Warriors is just another one of the many programs, projects and events that Us4Warriors offers throughout the year.
Recently, Us4Warriors partnered with the Knights of Columbus to deliver 110 wheelchairs in one weekend to our veterans in need. In 2016, their Food4Warriors events donated more than 65 tons of food to our armed forces families.
“We have received a tremendous amount of support from people just wanting to help out,” Stewart said.
Enrollment for Golf4Warriors is open to anyone that would like to come out and play. Entries are $600 per 4-man team or $160 for an individual. If you can’t make it to the course that day and want to participate, you can Sponsor-a-Warrior for just $120 to help subsidize the day for an active duty or wounded warrior who have expressed a desire to play.
“Many Warriors love to golf!,” Stewart says. “It is a release from stress. It is an escape from the rigors of their day.”
Prizes will be awarded for overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams. Prizes will also be awarded for Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Best Team Name, and Best Dressed Team. There is also an all-expenses paid Pebble Beach Golf Holiday Vacation for the first hole-in-one of the day.
Each player will receive a “goodie bag,” commemorative golf ballcap, complimentary range balls, one free raffle ticket (need not be present to win), discounted lunch and a complimentary buffet dinner for the Post Tournament Awards Dinner with prizes, activities and exclusive auction and raffle. Golfers are also in for a treat as the national comedy troupe “Veterans of Comedy” will be performing at the awards dinner immediately following. Actor/comedians Will “Will C” Clifton, B.J. Lange and Russ T. Nailz will be on hand to spice up the day. “We play a mean golf game, but looking forward to sharing some post game laughs to all who help us support Us4Warriors,” Clifton said.
