On June 11, National Capital Area Council hosted the 38th Annual Boy Scout Golf Classic at Manor Country Club. Scouting’s benefactors, donors, and supporters in the DMV region look forward to the annual event for its spirited comradery, a round of competitive play with their colleagues, and of course the surprise swag that’s to be found at many of the holes.
Rain or shine, this event is never short of players, sponsors, and smiles. It’s an opportunity to have a lot of fun while supporting an institution that you love. That’s Scouting.
Though more rain than shine, this year’s tournament brought out a who’s who of DC-area industry in support of NCAC and the festivities, including ValueMomentum, Safelite AutoGlass, Dynatrace, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, CCC Information Services, Inc., Horizon Media, Insurance Auto Auctions, Lockheed Martin, BMC Software, Cisco, KPMG, Praxis Consulting, Splunk, Black Diamond Media, ISG, MYTA, Recovery Point, Rivkin Radler, Service King, GEICO, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and RedPeg Marketing.
We did not see a hole-in-one during either the morning or afternoon rounds, but the scores that came back showed that a few rain showers would not dampen the fun or competition amongst our players.
All participants received gifts throughout the course. Golf bags, gloves, Amazon Echo Dots, and other goodies filled carts, while on other holes players had added bonus opportunity to win if they could hit a hole-in-one.Hole 5 featured a shot at winning a BMW and a Harley Davidson motorcycle while holes 8, 11, and 17 offered chances at a Corvette, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Range Rover, respectively. Other contests including closest to the pin and best score brought accolades, awards, and additional prizes at both the noon luncheon and evening banquet.
