Saturday’s below-freezing morning temperatures did little to chill the enthusiasm of droves of Belvoir golfers who took to the fairways and greens of the Fort Belvoir Woodlawn Course to compete in the 2019 Turkey Shoot Tournament, Saturday.

According to Tim Coolican, MWR business operations officer and golf club manager, 80 players competed in the shotgun-start, two-person team scramble event.

Fritz Diekmann, Fort Belvoir Golf Club PGA professional, hosted the competition in which all teams played in net and gross divisions. Men played from the blue tee markers and women played from the white-tee markers. Team handicap was calculated using the USGA-recommended method and final tallies resulted from gross score minus handicap.

The tournament was open to all amateur golf club members and eligible patrons with a verifiable USGA handicap.

The tournament also included a continental breakfast, cart, range balls and a turkey dinner with all the traditional fare. Tournament prizes included gift certificates and turkeys.
