Matthew Axelson Foundation Golf Tournament

Genoa Lakes Golf Club

Sunday, June 26th | 8am-7pm

For over 14 years our annual golf tournament was held in Palo Alto, under the name Cupertino Veterans Memorial. It moved to Nevada when the organizers moved to Genoa, and has since been renamed The Matthew Axelson Foundation Golf Tournament. Matthew was an avid golfer, and we honor his memory by celebrating one of his passions. Join us at the Genoa Lakes Golf Course, with breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided by the Genoa Lakes Catering Department (all part of the registration fee). You will enjoy good company, good beer, and a goodie bag full of MAF specific gifts. We hope to see you this year!

Military Players

This tournament is a wonderful way to interact with our military players (active duty & retired) and show them how much we appreciate their service. A Special Forces operator will play with your foursome when you sponsor a military golfer. The money we raise each year goes to various military organizations.

SEAL Family Foundation provides support for individual and family readiness through an array of programs specifically targeted to assist the Naval Special Warfare community in maintaining a resilient, sustainable, and healthy force in this era of persistent conflict and frequent deployments.

Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides a post-secondary education to the surviving children of fallen special operations service members. Special Operations Warrior Foundation supports America’s Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps Special Operations personnel.

De Anza Veterans Program is dedicated to providing student-veterans and their dependents with services that support the attainment of their academic and career goals.
