This event is for guys only. Fathers and sons* from ages 5 to 95. Grandfathers and grandsons, uncles and nephews, mentors and mentees, or if you are a man that plays a significant role in a young man’s life you can play together too.

*If you have a son (or know of one) whose father is unable to play for some reason or if you are a single mom with a son, these boys can sign up too. We have men who will team up with them and play for the day.


A father and son(s) play on the same team (in the same game) and will be teamed up with other fathers and sons of similar age.
