This year the tournament will benefit Maine native Rachel Dufresne, who after a lifetime of heart complications and a common but unsuccessful heart surgery in April of this year is permanently paralyzed from the diaphragm down as a result of blood pooling in her spinal cord. Rachel now faces extraordinary financial burdens related to this condition, including exorbitant medical bills and house renovations. As such, we want to help and invite you to please aid us in the effort. A portion of our proceeds will be donated to Rachel from this event.


  • Beer, prizes, food, and fun
  • Scramble format
  • Strings, mulligans, merchandise, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle
  • Grill stations on course with burgers and dogs
