More than 60 golfers braved yesterday’s weather for the 24th Annual National Guard Educational Foundation Fundraiser Golf Tournament held at Laurel Hill Golf Club in Lorton, Virginia.

The shotgun “Captain’s Choice” scramble began at 10 a.m.

The rain held off most of the day, and golfers started the round with overcast skies and cool winds. 

Competitors were provided complimentary beverages by the United Services Automobile Association and Donohoe.

A hot luncheon welcomed attendees after they completed their rounds.

The buffet-style meal was sponsored by Collins Aerospace; Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company; and TriWest Healthcare Alliance.

A raffle including several humidors, an item autographed by the Baltimore Ravens and gift certificates donated by generous sponsors also took place.

The winning team of Craig Swanson, Brad Poole and Adam Natysin finished at 10 under par.

Phil Dombek won the men’s longest drive competition.

Pamela Powers was the longest female driver.

Willie Tate (of the men) and Amor Woolsey (of the women) won the closest-to-the-pin competition.

NGEF Director Luke Guthrie thanked the participants for their support.

“We couldn’t have done this without you,” said Guthrie, adding the event raised $20,000.

The tournament will return to Laurel Hill, Virginia next year at a date to be determined. 

Established in 1975 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the NGEF goal is to tell all 386 years of the National Guard story.

Among the NGEF's programs is the National Guard Memorial Museum located in Washington, D.C.

The foundation relies solely on charitable contributions to accomplish its mission.

The NGEF operates independently of NGAUS, but both organizations share space at the National Guard Memorial in the nation's capital.
