Allder Golf Classic

Sunday, May 15
8 a.m. shotgun start
Celebration Golf Club, Celebration, FL

Join the Community for a day of networking on the links and support geospatial education. At Celebration Golf Club, the GEOINT Community will feel what it’s like to play the final course co-designed by the renowned masters of golf course architecture, Robert Trent Jones Senior and Junior. It’s lush, almost like a natural park with undulating swells and topography, a course reflective of the very best of every course they have created around the world.

The Allder Golf Classic, named in honor of William R. Allder Jr., helps fund the USGIF educational programs, such as the USGIF Scholarship Program. Since 2004, USGIF has awarded $891,000 in scholarships to deserving students pursuing educational excellence in fields related to the GEOINT tradecraft.
