Event Description

Present ColorsSince it was established in 2014, Salute to Valor has raised over $150,000 to benefit local veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

The tournament is held annually at the Serrano Country Club in El Dorado Hills, Calif., an 18-hole golf course that plays to a par-72 on just less than 7,000 yards. This beautiful, members-only course is open to everyone who plays in Salute to Valor. 

Teeing OffThis is a fun, scramble tournament with foursomes either assembled from random players or as registered. Lowest scoring foursome wins the tournament, while active duty military golfers team up with civilian threesomes to compete for the Armed Forces Trophy.

Included with registration are greens fees, box lunch on cart, luxury car for hole-in-one, post-play buffet (cash bar), awards presentation (new - all players on the top three foursomes get commemorative beer mug trophies) and every golfer receives a commemorative Salute to Valor Challenge Coin to be used as a ball marker.

A tournament package with mulligans and closest to pin entries, as well as  individual mulligans and closest to pin entries may be purchased online in advance or at the check-in desk.

HelicopterThis golf tournament is more than a fun and very social scramble, it is a tribute to our armed forces with a patriotic opening ceremony, presentation of colors, foursomes from each of the services that compete for the Armed Forces Trophy, patriotic music, an aerobatic flyover and displays of militaria.

Salute to Valor benefits local veterans and their families, including: educational assistance; hospice care; PTS counseling and therapy; paralympic training; food, housing and counseling to military and veteran families in distress; homelessness prevention and job assistance.

Following play, golfers and their guests assemble at the clubhouse for a post-play buffet, no-host drinks, announcement of auction high bidders and presentation of awards. In response to requests by players, this year's program has been simplified and will conclude earlier, yet it still has the pomp and military style of past Salute to Valor tournaments.

Players or donors can Sponsor A Vet and Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze spnsorships offer online and oncourse visibility.
