Registration starts on 9/14 at 7AM with a shotgun start at 8AM. There will be coffee and donuts in the morning. Soda, water and Power Aid courtesy of Coca Cola on the course. Lunch will be served on a yet to be designated hole or location. A buffet will be served on the open-air patio shortly after play has ended. Guests must have a mask for designated gathering areas. In order to limit contact with volunteers and registrars, golfers are being asked to, please, designate a member of your foursome that will remit greens fees and collect your groups Tournament Bags containing McGregor Swag and gift coupons.

Golf Tournament Update 8/26/2019

“The response we receive for our annual fundraiser this year was, again, tremendous. The Tournament is full for the 18th time. This year we were able to infuse more into the McGregor Endowment at Roger Williams University, and support so many good causes such as The Pan-Mass Challenger, Special Olympics of RI, The Same Thing Project, the E.P. High School Band that will be performing in Washington D.C. next Memorial Day, The I Am Able Foundation and more.

Congratulations to the 2018-2019 McGregor Scholarship recipient, Samantha Poland.

A special shout out to the Florida SWAT Association for their donation, entry of a foursome, and for securing donations from Florida businesses.

Thank you to all our Donors, Sponsors and Golfers for making this the best and largest annual police fundraiser in the State of Rhode Island. To all our partners, please, patronize those businesses that support our Law Enforcement Family.”
