SOWGF 2024 Tour of Tampa Bay Retreat

SOWGF has scheduled the 2024 Tour of Tampa Bay Retreat for April 28 to May 3.  The retreat will be home based in the Tampa Bay area and made available to six qualified SOF Wounded Warriors.  The format of the retreat will be similar to our previous retreats with instruction and practice in the morning and course play in the afternoon. The instruction and practice facility for the week will be the Tarpon Woods Golf Club and the courses played in the afternoon will be chosen from some of the area’s best. Our 4-6 Mentors will be selected from the local business community who, along with our six warriors, will comprise the three afternoon foursomes.

We are especially excited about the format and local participation in this event.  The venues we have onboard include the Hunter’s Green Golf and Country Club, the Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club, Westchase Country Club, Cheval Country Club, and TPC of Tampa Bay.  As mentioned above, the Tarpon Woods Golf Club will be our instruction and teaching facility for the morning sessions.  Our Board Member, Jan Stephenson, has generously donated the use of the facility through her Crossroads Foundation.  Jan, a former LPGA great and World Golf Hall of Fame Member, has also agreed to be one of our teaching pros throughout the week.  Other Pros will come from our partner PGA Hope.

A new feature for this retreat is the inclusion of the SOWGF 2024 Spring Golf Classic, our fundraising tournament, on Tuesday April 30 at Hunter’s Green Golf and Country Club.  The warriors will be able to play in this event, along with some of our previous retreat alumni, which will allow our contributors to meet the warriors benefitting from their contributions and witness firsthand what our program activities are all about.
