WW Golf OutingWounded Warrior Golf Outing
July 23, Locust Hills Golf Club

Veterans and their family and friends are invited to join the host committee for the October 2017 visit by the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) to play in a golf outing on Sunday, 23 July 2017, at Locust Hills Golf Club, just south of Springfield.

This event will help raise hosting fees (which include player travel, lodging, and meals) while the team is in town to play two exhibition games on Saturday, 14 October. The more that is raised for the hosting fees results in a larger donation to the beneficiary nonprofits.

The WWAST appearance in October is fund raiser for both the new Fisher House Project at the Dayton VA Medical Center and Honor Flight–Dayton.

Our $75 per person golf outing is a four-person scramble and will include coffee and donuts, greens fees and cart, drinks on the course, lunch, prizes, and a donation to the WWAST hosting fund.

For a complete entry packet, please send e-mail to Scott Kuhnen at:
