Attention All Golf Enthusiasts

Written by: Corey Welcher, volunteer

Spring has finally arrived in our nation’s capital and the American Red Cross is providing
you the opportunity to brush the dust of those clubs for a good cause.  On Tuesday, May 19th take a break from the bustling city to participate in the 12th Annual Red Tee Golf Tournament at the prestigious Golf Club at Lansdowne in Virginia. 

Registration for the event is now open and opportunities are still available to participate as a sponsor at various donation levels and in the silent auction.  As a Tournament sponsor you have an opportunity to network with local business and government leaders, reward top-performing employees and/or clients by including them in your team of four; all while contributing directly to safety and disaster relief needs of your family, friends, and neighbors.


  1. A women’s flight
  2. Special spa opportunity for your non-golfing spouse at the Lansdowne Resort during the tournament
  3. An exciting two-night golf travel package for the Sea Island Resort in Georgia.  Choose to stay in either the Lodge or the Cloister but you can’t go wrong as both are the recipients of Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star awards for six consecutive years and voted two of the top five resorts in the Continental US two years in a row by readers of Travel & Leisure
  4. A putting lesson at Sea Island Resort with Mike Shannon, Putting Guru, is part of our live auction package
The Tournament will begin with an 8:00am breakfast and registration followed by a shotgun 10am start with a reception, award ceremony and silent auction at 3:00pm.  We encourage all participants to wear red as a symbol of this combined effort to support the Red Cross in 2015.

Last year’s team winners from each flight boasted scores of 55 and 66 respectively - who will come out on top this year?

Don’t miss your chance to help the American Red Cross to continue providing outstanding care and support during disasters and fires in the National Capital Region- register a player or sponsor today!
