VGA Battle At The Beach

BATTLE AT THE BEACH presented by Golf Academy of America

On September 11, 2001, deadly terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania resulted in the deaths of over 3,000 Americans. Since then, over 5,000 servicemen and women have been killed combating terrorism all over the world.

The VGA’s Battle at the Beach Open pays tribute to the sacrifices of these brave Americans, both those that have given their lives, and those that continue to protect our way of life. This two-man team golf tournament is open to all VGA members, guests, supporters, and patriots that want to honor all sacrifices made since 9/11.

Don't have a partner? We'll pair you up when you get to Myrtle Beach! For just $199 per player, you will enjoy three rounds of golf, beaches, entertainment, camaraderie, and competition. You don't want to miss this patriotic family vacation to Myrtle Beach from Sept 7-9!

In their honor, may we NEVER FORGET 9/11. Sign up and support the VGA today!
