“Don’t let them fool you, we usually win ‘em all,” said Robert Green.
A retired master sergeant, Green was talking about defeating competitors at the XVIII Airborne Corps Golf Scramble, Oct. 4, at Stryker Golf Course.
More than 60 golfers took part in the event, said Jeff Johnson, Fort Bragg’s director of golf. The 18-hole scramble featured teams of four players, with prizes awarded to first, second and third-place teams.
The corps scramble provides an opportunity for fellowship among servicemembers, retirees and the Fort Bragg community.
“I just want to have a good time and that’s all I want to do,” said Capt. Sarah Whitten, who is assigned to the XVIII Abn. Corps. This scramble “allows the corps to get out and relax and have a good time. It really gets us out of the office.”
The scramble is a post event in which Soldiers can get to know each other and take a break from work, said Lt. Gen. Joseph Anderson, commanding general of the XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg.
Yet another advantage to having the annual scramble — “It teaches Soldiers to enjoy the game of golf,” said Anderson.
