This annual tournament honors the memory of beloved community member Michael D. Riley who served as President of Moody Gardens and Vice-President of Gal-Tex Hotel Corporation before his unexpected passing in 2009. All proceeds benefit The Salvation Army of Galveston County.
Last year's first place team was Maintenance of Galveston represented by Travis Wallace, Tim Delgado, Daniel Williams and Gerald Beausoleil. Moody National Bank took second place led by John Smith, Keith Marshall, Bill Horner and Fred Raschke.
The 2018 event will feature the $20,000 Legend Shoot-Out Hole-in-One contest sponsored by Dixon Golf. Four lucky players will be selected by random draw to take a shot at a Hole-In-One following tournament play with the prize to be split evenly with The Salvation Army.
