Golf Scramble For Warrior Transition Battalion

CREATED Mar 26, 2014

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - The Fort Campbell Warrior Transition Battalion is hosting a first-ever golf tournament.

The Inaugural Eagle Warrior Golf Scramble will be held April 4 at the Clarksville Country Club in Clarksville, Tenn.

Warrior Transition Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Bryan Walrath says the event is a way to raise awareness about the battalion, which helps injured soldiers who have been deployed. Organizers are encouraging each foursome to have at least one wounded soldier or veteran.

Players will have the opportunity to win a $10,000 hole-in-one purse and prizes for best dressed, closest to the pin, longest drive and most honest team as well as door prizes.

Registration is open through April 1 and the cost is $75 per player.
