The HEROES, Inc.® Golf Tournament is an annual fundraising event to benefit the families of local law enforcement officers and firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Each year, HEROES, Inc.®, sponsors a two-day golf tournament from which all proceeds are used to support the HEROES Scholarship Program. This program provides for each HEROES child who lost a parent in the line of duty with a full undergraduate college scholarship. The dedicated tournament committee that works to see that this event is a success is comprised completely of volunteers. A large amount of funding for the event comes from local police, fire, and rescue agencies.
The remaining support for this event is only made possible through people like you. Your donations go to support the families of those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. We hope that you will join us on the green as we raise money for the families of the fallen.

Twin Lakes Golf Course offers golfers the opportunity of a full day of golf with two 18-hole courses. Inaugurated in 1998, The Oaks’ par 71 and 6,715 yards challenge all golfers with multiple tees to ensure a fair test for all playing abilities. Every hole except one is tree-lined on both sides of the fairway, making accuracy the primary goal off the tee. Opened in 1967, the Lakes Course features a par-72 and 6,695-yard experience that requires more distance off the tee, but is much more forgiving than the Oaks Course.
The Lakes Course (1967) is the original course on the property. 6 holes were redesigned in 1998 to coincide with the opening of the Oaks Course. It is the more forgiving of the two courses. Although there is a smattering of trees throughout the course, and if you find yourself behind one of them you may find yourself “in jail,” for the most part you can grip it and rip it off of the tee. The 10th, 15th and 17th holes are the only three with trouble on both sides of the fairway. As the name implies, the course is designed around two lakes which can certainly attract the poorly struck golf ball. However, in general, the Lakes Course should certainly be the choice of the golfer who is unsure of where his/her tee ball is going to end up. In 2004, 13 new tees were added to 10 of the holes. This addition greatly modernized the style of the course by adding greater flexibility to the choice of tees and, therefore, adding enjoyment to a larger variety of golfers. So, if you haven’t played the Lakes Course in several years….you haven’t played the Lakes Course.
The Oaks Course (1998), as you might surmise, meanders its way through the many oak trees that are on the property. This should almost certainly be the choice for a golfer who does not hit the ball very far but always straight. Although it is actually slightly longer than the Lakes Course, most of that distance is made up on two long par 5’s and one long par 3. The majority of holes actually play shorter than their counterpart on the Lakes Course. This does not take anything away from the challenge as the Oaks Course is certainly more difficult than the Lakes Course. In addition to the aforementioned woods there are 56 bunkers and 7 different water hazards which produce 3 forced carries to add to the difficulty. Finally, the greens are much smaller, more undulating and better protected by mounds and bunkering than the Lakes Course. All in all, it is a spectacular championship design. The Oaks Course has hosted one Virginia State Golf Association tournament and 4 United States Golf Association tournaments.
