Camp Victory’s 15th Annual Golf Tournament
August 28 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
New date of Friday August 28, 2020, at Maple Valley Golf Course!
Dear Friends of the Camp Victory Golf Tournament,
We hope this finds you well and that you, your family and friends are safe and healthy. This is an uncertain time for everyone as our communities, cities and country continue to respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
With the date of June 5th rapidly approaching and because the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions will probably not change much with respect to playing in a tournament with all the extrinsic pieces we like to offer as a part of the tournament, we have made the difficult decision that the 15th Anniversary of the Camp Victory Golf Tournament, will be postponed.
Ultimately, the health and well-being of everyone associated with this event; camp staff, volunteers, players and families led us to this decision. We hope this postponement puts us in the best position to safely play the tournament on the new date of Friday August 28, 2020, at Maple Valley Golf Course.
We remain optimistic the CV Golf Tournament will proceed as planned on Friday, August 28th and will continue to monitor the situation closely. We care deeply about our community, families and friends and any choice made to continue or cancel the tournament will be made with guidance provided by the State of Minnesota, Olmsted County and the City of Rochester. We intend to keep you appraised of the situation but prayfully hope you will join us this year to once again raise money for children to attend Camp Victory in 2020 and 2021.
In the event of cancellation, registrants will be able to choose from the three options below. We hope this provides some peace of mind and that you’ll consider committing to golf with us.
- Participate Virtually: Golf your own “tournament” whenever you choose but before October 15th, share your results. More details will be provided if we should need to cancel the August 28th
- Defer: Transfer your registration fee to the 2021 Camp Victory Golf Tournament at no extra cost, but you must register and pay no later than August 28th.
- Donate to Camp Victory for camper scholarships (CV is a non-profit organization which works to promote, encourage and inspire people to trust and treasure Jesus Christ. More details will be provided if we should need to cancel the August 28th tournament.
So what do we do with our grand prize of 18 holes for a foursome from The Wilderness at Fortune Bay near Tower MN (https://www.golfthewilderness.com/)? In the past, Camp Victory has secured the golfing grand prize but have always paid for the lodging. This year we will not include the lodging at Fortune Bay due to financial restraints, but the golfing portion will be done as follows.
- All CV tournament golfers who have registered and paid by June 5th (the date originally planned for the 2020 tournament will be entered into a drawing. The name selected from all those registered and paid will be the winner of the 4 guest passes to The Wilderness.
- You can pay by calling camp at 507-843-2329 and providing your credit card or sending a check with 2020 golf tournament in the memo line to Camp Victory Golf Tournament, 58212 403rd Ave, Zumbro Falls, MN 55991.
- Why are we doing this now rather than at the tournament? There is an expiration date of October 8. We wanted to give the winner time to take advantage of their prize opportunity.
- Register today and get entered in the grand prize drawing and in the Camp Victory 2020 Golf Tournament on August 28th.
It is our intent to have a full CV golf tournament in 2020 with the food, fun, door prizes, and overall prizes, just as we have in the past. While there are no guarantees, we will do our very best in these trying times to provide each of you with a wonderful and memorable experience.
A very sincere thank you to all of you who have supported us throughout the years and we are so excited to see you again toward the end of the summer.
If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected] and use the CV golf tournament website page https://campvictory.com/event/camp-victorys-15th-annual-golf-tournament/. In the meantime, stay positive and take care of each other. We hope to see you out on the course on August 28th.

Join us for our 2020 15th Annual Camp Victory Best Ball Golf Tournament at Maple Valley! All money raised goes to our camper scholarship foundation!
“I play in a lot of charity golf tournaments every year and I have to honestly say this is one, if not thee best one I enjoy playing. For instance, this is the only event I play where they feed you before and after play. This is a great idea as most people are rushing to get to the course on a half day off from work. The meal and awards ceremony afterward is a lot of fun as well as a majority of the players walk away with some take away.. hats, shirts, balls etc. There are your standard events like closest to the pin and longest putt. The Main prize of 4 rounds at the Wilderness at Fortune Bay is a bonus. If you are lucky enough to be the drawing winner for that, you are in for a great time. I have been lucky enough in the past years to have collected on that and my son and I had a great time on a challenging beautiful course. So if you are looking for a great time with a lot of good people golfing for a great cause, I highly recommend the Camp Victory Golf Tournament.” – 2019 Golfer
Noon Shotgun Start – Lunch begins at 11:00 AM
Due to the wonderful success of the golf tournament held in previous years, we have been able to offer hundreds of children financial aid so that they can experience a week at Camp Victory.
During the summer months of 2019 Camp Victory served 1250 campers and staff through the summer camp programs. Together with other efforts and events the golf tournament helped offer almost 180 children financial aid to attend camp through the camper scholarship fund. Please join us and help us do even more in 2020. Thank you for supporting this great cause and by participating in the Camp Victory Annual Golf Tournament.
HyVee will be providing a light lunch and Carlos O’Kelleys will be placing refreshments strategically located on the course.
Please join us in our efforts to make the summer of 2020 a memorable experience for children who don’t have the financial means to attend camp.
