The 14th Annual Eagle Alliance CryptoCup began with registration and breakfast at 7:30 a.m. and a Shotgun Start and Tee-Off (many dressed as spies! - see below) at 8:30 a.m. After 18 holes of play, everyone gathered for a country buffet lunch and awards!

Eagle Alliance 2015 Golf - Spy Tee Off

There were 140 players who gathered at the Patuxent Greens Golf Course, in Laurel, MD, to enjoy a day of fun and competition. Volunteers distributed goodie bags, manned two beverage stations, and photographed the event.

This year's tournament featured a "Spy Tee-Off" fundraiser which many enjoyed.

2015 Eagle Alliance Golf - Spy Tee off team

Lots of teams got into the spirit and participated in the Spy Tee-Off Fundraiser! Thanks golfers!

Many golfers and some who were just out to support the event, made a contribution and put on a disguise for their tee-off. We still knew who they were, especially by their golf swing! See more photos of our "spy" golfers and tournament crashers below!
