45th CFU National Golf Tournament
June 18-June 19
Versailles Tee’s It Up For The Return of the CFU National Golf Tournament
After a yearlong hiatus due to the pandemic, the National Golf Tournament is back. On June 18th and 19th, Sveto Trojstvo Lodge 146 of Versailles will play host to the 45th Annual CFU National Golf Tournament. The Tournament will take place at the beautiful Butler’s Golf Course, located at 800 Rock Run Rd, Elizabeth, PA 15037. Butler’s has hosted our tournament in the past and will no doubt be in great condition for this year’s event.
The tournament format will remain the same as previous years past, staring Friday, June 18th with a 4-Man Blind Scramble, and Saturday June 19th being the traditional Individual Stroke Play Tournament. Friday shotgun start will be 1:00pm and Saturday’s shotgun will be 9:00am. We ask all golfers to arrive at the course at least 45 minutes prior to the shotgun start to register and get in a little putting practice.
Each 4-some will be allowed 2 guests/non-members to join them for the tournament. Guests will not be eligible for Tournament prizes but do have the opportunity to win skill prizes. We encourage our members to use this event as an opportunity, to show your friends and family, which might not be CFU members, what our organization is all about. This is a chance to show them Fraternalism at its best!
This year’s tournament registration fee is $140 for Men and Women and $80 for Junior golfers. Your registration includes 2 rounds of golf with cart, Food and refreshments at the turn (both days), registration goodie bag provided by the CFU and dinner Saturday evening at the Awards Banquet. As a special treat to our golfers, The Cigar Shop of Ellwood City will be on hand at the golf course, as well as the club, to offer up some great deals for our golfers who lie to enjoy a fine cigar.
The officers and members of Sveto Trojstvo Lodge 146 have done an outstanding job to put together a schedule of events for our golfers to keep them busy and partying all weekend. All events will be taking place at the Versailles Croatian Home located at 4400 3rd St, McKeesport, PA 15132. The Versailles Croatian Home is a quick 8 miles from the hotel and just 5 miles from the golf course.

On Friday the party will continue immediately following golf at the Versailles club. The popular Radost of Pittsburgh, PA, will be playing in the downstairs bar area starting at 7:00pm.
