The 2024 HMGT will be scheduled for September 25th (Wednesday) through September 28th (Saturday)
We had an absolutely perfect and wonderful 2023 Heroes Memorial Golf Tournament (HMGT) celebration. I want to thank each and everyone who participated in making this experience so unforgettable. Your efforts to travel and attend this great event were above and beyond.
Our weather and course conditions were perfect. We can only hope that our HGMT 2024 will be as wonderful. New St. James resident Chuck Arnone is the Champion Golfer for 2023. Team Wunk (Tom and Jeff W, Roger Main, and Jeff Snyder) won the HMGT Team Scramble. Congratulations to them all.
The HMGT is also very proud of those who sponsored, donated, and purchased mulligans, raffle gift prize tickets, and shirt sales which raised $2,360 for the Tunnels to Towers and $1,820 for the US Secret Service Association. Next year we hope to have you all return again and experience the friendship, camaraderie and laughs as the HMGT honors those who have gone before us. The HMGT 2024 is scheduled for September 25th (Wednesday) through September 28th (Saturday). We will begin with our five-star Welcome Reception at Woodlands Park Pavillon and end with are fantastic evening banquet dinner at the Members Club. This will leave Sunday a travel day. Thank you all and please share this event/date with others which we may have been left off the list. Please follow all news and updates on our website. heroesmgt.com.

The Kiely Golf Tournament has been with us since 2008 when Jim Kiely, a retired US Secret Service (USSS) Special Agent (SA) living at St. James Plantation, banded together with other USSS/SA’s retirees and friends to play the first Kiely Golf Tournament. Jim was our first Champion.
In 2012, Jim passed away and the golf tournament he started was named in his honor. The Kiely Golf Tournament continued to grow as the retired/working residents living in St. James joined the fun from numerous diverse backgrounds (US Military, Federal/State/local government, business professionals). This group developed friendships, rekindled old associations, and shared their passion for the game of golf while enjoying family events that surround this golf weekend celebration.
In January 2017, former USSS/SA John Gregory, who lived in St James and loved the game of golf, passed away suddenly. It was only fitting to change the name to The Kiely/Gregory Golf Tournament and honor both fallen heroes. In 2022 we lost another hero, USSS/SA Tom Brancaccio. As we now move toward 2023 the golf tournament continues to grow and develop. Many hero families, from states across this country, come to enjoy St. James, visit friends, enjoy the surrounding area, and play golf at our Memorial event. Our new name will be the Heroes Memorial Golf Tournament. I hope you embrace the name change and we all work together to continue to honor and support our heroes who gave and continue to give, making this special event a success year after year.
