The Commander Pete Oswald Memorial Golf Tournament will take place with a 1 p.m. shotgun start Friday, Sept. 27, at Shuksan Gold Club, 1500 Axton Road, Bellingham.

Register by visiting oswaldtournament.com, or email oswaldgolf@gmail.com. Room is available for individual golfers or foursomes or to attend the dinner and auction.

The tournament is an annual Birdies for the Brave charity event held to provide a day of camaraderie and philanthropy that honors the memory of Commander Pete Oswald, a fallen Navy SEAL.
