Golf championship takes place at Fort Belvoir


A member of the All-Marine Golf team tees off on day one of the championship at Fort Belvoir.

Top golfers from across the U.S. military have converged at the Fort Belvoir Golf Club to participate in the Armed Forces Golf Championship from Sept. 11-14.

The tournament features four teams —Army, Navy (including Coast Guard), Air Force (including Space Force) and Marines — competing for medals over 72 holes of play. Team members come from installations around the world; the 2022 All-Army team includes two players stationed in Hawaii, two in Germany, one at Fort Belvoir, and a few from other domestic installations and the Army Reserve.

This is Fort Belvoir’s first time hosting the championship, according to a representative from the club. It’s also the first time the tournament has been played since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That year, the Air Force men’s golf team and the Army women’s golf team won gold.

Members of the general public are welcome to watch the tournament. Tee times begin at 8 a.m. from Sept. 12-14. The golf club is located at 8450 Beulah Street.

Visitors age 16 and older without a Department of Defense ID or access pass can use the Tulley Gate to gain access to the garrison. Further details about requirements for installation access are available on the Fort Belvoir website.
