Golfers are wanted to play in the 11th annual Commander’s Cup Golf Tournament set for Sept. 7 at Hubbard Golf Course. The tournament is sponsored by the Aerospace Heritage Foundation of Utah with proceeds benefiting the Hill Aerospace Museum.
“This is a superb opportunity to play golf at one of the premier courses in Utah, take in a clinic with PGA Tour stars of the future, and contribute to the year’s single largest fundraiser for the Hill Aerospace Museum,” said Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Marc Reynolds, Aerospace Heritage Foundation of Utah chairman.
The cost to play is $130 per person, which includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, lunch, dinner and a clinic.
“We are also very fortunate to once again have members of the Nationwide Tour joining us for the tournament and conducting a golf clinic for everyone to enjoy,” Reynolds said.
In addition to the clinic, professional golfers from the Nationwide Tour and from around Utah will participate in the tournament.
The tournament is a modified Las Vegas scramble with each foursome being assigned a fifth Nationwide Tour or local Utah professional to play on the team. All players will hit their respective tee shots; the best shot will then be selected; and then each golfer will play their own ball from that point on. One gross and one net score is used to tally the team score.
The Hill Aerospace Museum collects, preserves, and displays historically significant artifacts to depict the significant role that Hill Air Force Base and the state of Utah have had in U.S. Air Force history.
The museum also offers a variety of educational programs that students from around the intermountain west travel to for field trips,” said Gen. Reynolds. “These programs not only preserve history, but are helping to stimulate interest among the young people who will be our Air Force members of the future.”
