August 20th, 2018 by wwcpresident

 

Wakefield, MA – The 14th Annual Warrior Club Golf Tournament was held on Monday, August 6, 2018 at the Beverly Golf & Tennis Club in Beverly, Massachusetts.  The temperature was well into the 90’s but that didn’t stop 92 golfers from coming out to support the Wakefield Warrior Football team. The Golf Course was in spectacular condition and we are already looking forward to next year’s event. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped put it together. We couldn’t have done it without you.

The day began with our golfers being met as they drove into the golf club by players from Senior, Junior, & Sophomore class of this year’s Varsity Football Team. The players greeted the golfers with a smile, welcomed them to the event, thanked them for their support and transported their clubs to their golf carts. From there, golfers checked-in at registration where a team of AMAZING Volunteers assisted them with Raffle and Mulligan tickets and provided them with their gift bags – stuffed with Tournament giveaways. The gift bags were donated by North Star Realtors and inside, the golfers were provided with: Tournament Golf Shirts with the Warrior Insignia, sponsored by The Savings Bank and 128 Plumbing, Heating and Cooling; Wakefield Football cooler bags sponsored by Keith’s Tree Service & Graphic Solutions. From there, golfers enjoyed a buffet lunch of hot dogs, sausage onions/peppers, and chips.

The Tournament began with a Shotgun Start at 1:00pm.  As the golfers raced to their starting hole, they were greeted by numerous contest and Tee Sponsor Signs to be seen throughout the course.
