Slots to golf in the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group’s annual Combat Golf Tournament are filling up, but non-golfers still have an opportunity to sponsor a member of the military’s 18-hole round.

On Monday, June 2, the support group hosts its fifth annual golf tournament that raises funds to support Marines and families of the Camp Pendleton-based 5th Marine Regiment. The tournament will be held at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Course, located at 26772 Avery Parkway in Mission Viejo.

Registration for the event is still open. Cost to participate is $195 and includes a round of golf, lunch, dinner and prizes. Participants will partake in on-course games where they will sidestep “snipers,” tiptoe through “minefields” and complete obstacle courses.

There will be raffle prizes, a wine putting contest, a helicopter ball drop and a silent auction.

Those uninterested in golfing may attend the dinner and awards ceremony or sponsor a golfing Marine. For more information or register at www.danapoint5thmarines.com.
