The Fort Belvoir Golf Club hosts the 2019 Turkey Shoot Tournament, Nov. 23 on the Woodlawn Course. Registration deadline is Nov. 20.

Competition starts at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start, following a two-person team scramble format.

All teams will play in both net and gross divisions, according to Fritz Deikmann, Belvoir Golf Club PGA professional. Men will play from the blue tee markers and women play from the white-tee markers. Team handicap will be calculated using the USGA recommended method.

Since this is a two-person team tournament, the Pro Shop will make every effort to pair singles into two-person teams, Diekmann added. The tournament is open to all amateur Golf Club members and eligible patrons, and all participants must have a verifiable USGA handicap.

The entrance fee, per golfer, is: $50 for active-duty military and Golf Club members, and $85 for non-members. The fee includes a continental breakfast, cart, range balls and a turkey dinner. Tournament prizes will include gift certificates and turkeys.

Individuals and teams must register by 5 p.m., Nov. 20. Two-person team entries will be accepted in person at the Pro Shop or by telephone at 703-806-5878 with a Visa or Mastercard. Singles may sign up on the singles entry form. The fee for a single registration can be paid when a team is formed or on the day of the tournament at the discretion of management.
