In preparation for the 2021 Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival, a fundraiser golf outing is planned for May 8 at Pigeon Creek Golf Course in Robinson Township.

Registration is now open for the event, and sponsors are being sought.

“This is the perfect example of community members coming together to support a national celebration in honor of our Coast Guard heroes,” said Michael Smith, executive director of the festival. “This year in particular, much-needed funds will be generated toward achieving our public acknowledgment of all our U.S. Coast Guard personnel.”

Two scrambles will take place at golf course, 10195 120th Ave. The morning event begins with a 7 a.m. registration and a shotgun start at 8; the afternoon session begins with 12:30 p.m. registration and a 1:30 shotgun start.

All golfers are invited to attend a noon luncheon at the course.

This year’s Coast Guard Festival is scheduled to run from July 30 through Aug. 8. The 2020 festival was canceled due to COVID-19.

For more information about becoming a sponsor, or to register, visit, or search “Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival” on Facebook.
