The Invitational field is limited to 84 players. Entries are subject to rejection at any time, including during play of the Invitational at the discretion of the Tournament Committee for incidents involving amateur status or unbecoming conduct.
The Patriot All-America Invitational shall be conducted over 54 holes of stroke play. In the event of a tie, the champion shall be determined in a hole-by-hole playoff, weather permitting.

OPENING CEREMONIES & AM/AM
The timing of Opening Ceremonies and Am/Am event are still being negotiated. Since this falls over a weekend, we are working with Luke AFB to coordinate the final schedule. Please check the Patriot website for updated information.
All players are REQUIRED to attend the Opening Ceremonies. Failure to do so without specific approval from the Tournament Committee will result in the withdrawal of the player from the Championship.
Locker room facilities and lockers are limited. Contestants who desire the use of a locker must make a request to the Committee in advance of the tournament. Lockers will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis. A locker room and shoe care attendant will be on duty during the Invitational and gratuities are expected.
A player who withdraws prior to the Entry Fee Deadline of November 1 will receive a full refund of fees. If a player withdraws after that date for any reason other than family emergency or documented injury/illness, the Tournament Committee may charge a fee if the player’s spot is not filled.
Participation will be accepted on a first-come basis. The collegian will play his own ball for the entire round. There will be an Am/Am dinner following the round.
For those players who do not play in the Am/Am, they will be given an opportunity to play a practice round as part of the shotgun event.
PATRIOT ALL-AMERICA GOLF BAGS
All players in the field agree to participate in any promotional aspects or functions associated with the tournament as requested. These include but are not limited to the use of a unique golf bag during the competition days with the name of a fallen or disabled military hero embroidered on the golf bag. Please note the golf bag used during the event will be forwarded to your head coach with the expectation that it will be auctioned off by the golf program or athletic department with all proceeds to be designated to the Folds of Honor Foundation Scholarship Fund.
Players that would like to request a specific soldier to represent must submit their commitment to play and the name of the soldier no later than August 15, 2017.
