The Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group is set to host their sixth annual Combat Golf Tournament on June 1 at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo. The funds raised at the tournament will go toward the support group’s efforts in assisting the 5th Marine Regiment and their families as well as the group’s adopted Wounded Warriors.
The tournament is close to selling out, according to organizer Pete Hammer, but there is still room to sign up.
Cost for the tournament is $195, which includes 18 holes of golf, lunch, dinner and prizes. There will also be a helicopter ball drop and a raffle.
The Combat Golf Tournament offers participants a unique experience with on-course games. There will be obstacle courses to avoid on the fairways, penalty-costing “mine fields” and a hole where golfers must tee off wearing marine-issued helmets and flak jackets.
Those who do not wish to golf can still sponsor a local Marine to play in the tournament.
