The Valspar Championship is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour, played annually on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor. With more than 2,000 volunteers who contribute their time and efforts during tournament week, community-minded sponsors, and the support of tens of thousands of golf fans each year, the Valspar Championship raises money for charitable organizations such as Veterans Alternative. Although the 2020 Valspar Championship was cancelled this year, we look forward to an amazing tournament in 2021. Be sure to check back here for updates and enjoy pictures from our week at the 2019 Valspar Championship below. Don’t forget to view our inspiring Portraits of Courage videos!
The week kicked-off with the Veterans Alternative Copperhead 5K on St. Patrick’s Day! The race incorporated a scenic route through the iconic Copperhead Golf Course and finished with a post-race part featuring green beer and food from Glory Days Grill at the Benchmark Snake Pit Club on the 17th green. Competition was fierce with more than 500 participants, but everyone who attended had a fun time supporting a great cause!
Monday featured a private Pro-Celebrity-Am golf event benefiting Veterans Alternative. Spectators and supporters of Veterans Alternative attended to cheer on their fellow Veterans and favorite pro and celebrity golfers! We even had special guests Governor Ron DeSantis, First Lady Casey DeSantis and executive director of the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Danny Burgess come out to support Veterans Alternative!
