|AHEPA Athletics is pleased to announce the results of the 2021 Dr Monthe Kofos National Golf Tournament. The Tournament took place at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona. 56 players, including 14 first time participants, traveled from all over the country in order to participate. The AHEPA Golf program continues to thrive, and we view the success of this tournament, taking place in the midst of a global pandemic, as proof of our resilience.|
Highlights of the weekend included a spectacular hole-in-one by Sons of Pericles Past Supreme President Gregory Vourloumis of Atlanta, Georgia as well as a dinner and poker night in which we were joined by the Tucson AHEPA Chapter and District 20 Governor Pete Marudas. We were also able to use this evening event to help the Tucson chapter raise funds for their local scholarships.
|This year we crowned one overall gross tournament winner, four flight winners, and a women’s champion. As always, golfers were split up based on their handicaps and competed against other golfers of similar ability.|

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
Special thanks to our National Golf Director Sandy Papadopoulos, and the AHEPA Golf Committee, Ted Vrehas, Dean Avdalas, and John Touris. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Brother Peter Bartzis, an Ahepan from Illinois with a home in Tucson who arranged the weekend’s final banquet.
Supreme President George G. Horiates congratulated the AHEPA Athletics program on hosting a successful event and hopes that this will mark the first of many in person national events as the world slowly returns to a sense of normalcy. He hopes to see everybody at our Supreme Convention this July in Athens, Greece! The Committee is already planning the Fall National Golf Invitational. We are looking for a late October or early November date and will send out information as soon as we have it to share. If you have any questions or would like information about the AHEPA Golf program, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via cell at 847-942-8389. Fraternally,
