2017 Eagle Alliance Crypto Cup Golf Tournament

The annual Eagle Alliance Crypto Cup is dedicated to the memory of Tim Sheahan, Eagle Alliance's first Account Executive and a key contributor to the award and success of the GROUNDBREAKER program. This annual event is a KEY fundraiser for the National Cryptologic Museum Foundation as well as a lot of FUN! See below for photos and winners from this year's event. LOTS more photos available via the Flickr albums linked below. See previous years' recap pages for photos from past events.

Friday, June 9, 2017 was a beautiful warm day with temperatures in the 80’s. A total of 124 players gathered at the Patuxent Greens Golf Course, in Laurel, MD, to enjoy a day of fun and competition. Registration/breakfast began at 7:30 a.m. with a Shotgun Start and Tee-off at 8:30 a.m. Volunteers ensured that everyone checked in and received their goody bags, manned two beverage stations, and photographed the event. A Mega-Putt Contest was held before the tee-off with a $100 gift certificate won by Kurt Hodges of FEDDATA.

Spy Tee Off 2017

The Spy Tee-Off hole is always a favorite. LOTS of great spy photos were captured!

After 18 holes of play, everyone gathered together for a Country Buffet lunch and awards. Eagle Alliance presented a check to the National Cryptologic Museum Foundation for $30,000. The final amount will total over $34,000 after a donation from Patuxent Greens Golf Course (based on the 5-year average from holding the tournament there for 5 consecutive years). Over $500 was raised at the Spy Hole where players posed as spies for team photos. SPY HOLE FLICKR ALBUM
