The Aerospace Heritage Foundation of Utah, which supports the Hill Aerospace Museum, will hold its annual Commander's Cup charity golf tournament Oct. 1 at Hubbard Golf Course.
Each year amateur and professional golfers participate in the tournament, and this year's event won't be any different. Several golfers from the local area are slated to play, as well as LPGA Tour professional Brittany Lincicome, who will host a pre-tournament golf clinic at 11:15 a.m. for tournament goers.
Lincicome, who resides in Seminole, Fla., started playing on the LPGA Tour in 2005 and is known for being one of the longest drivers in women's golf.
"While we've had PGA professionals such as Tom Watson, Mike Weir and Johnny Miller join us for past Commander's Cups, this is the first time we'll have an LPGA professional with us," said retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Kevin J. Sullivan, Aerospace Heritage Foundation of Utah board member. "Brittany Lincicome is a five-time winner on the LPGA tour, including a major tournament win, so this will be a great opportunity to get out and meet one of the LPGA's best right here on Hill Air Force Base."
Cost is $130 per golfer, which covers the clinic, greens fees, golf cart, food and prizes; however, anyone with access to the installation will be able to attend the golf clinic for free. Proceeds from the tournament directly support the Hill Aerospace Museum.
The Hill Aerospace Museum preserves and displays historically significant Air Force artifacts and offers a number of exhibits and educational programs for youth and adults. Museum hours are from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. seven days a week. The museum is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
