Nearly 50 golfers from across the Belvoir community joined Col. Michael Greenberg, Fort Belvoir Garrison commander; and Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Corey Perry, at the Golf Club, April 24 to compete in the 2019 Garrison Scramble Tournament—a nine-hole, four-person team match on the Woodlawn Course.
The event, sponsored by MWR and coordinated by Tim Coolican, Golf Club manager; and Fritz Diekmann, Belvoir PGA professional, gave community golfers a unique chance to spend some time with the garrison command team in friendly competition.
“I want to thank everyone for coming out today,” Greenberg said during his opening remarks. “This event is about team-building and networking, and it’s also about camaraderie, friendship and having fun.”
The tournament included a long-drive contest on Hole 16 and a closest to the pin competition on Hole 13.
Special guests and participants included the Deputy to the Garrison Commander, John Burns; George Dickson, Fort Belvoir MWR director; Fort Belvoir Police Chief Johnnie Kibler; and several MWR event specialists.
According to Dickson, the Garrison Scramble Tournament is a popular event that MWR aims to stage each year.
The tournament took place on the Woodlawn Course’s back 9 and golfers followed a shotgun-start format.
