Polish National Alliance's 55th National Golf Tournament was held on Sunday and Monday, October 15 and 16, 2017 in Myrtle Beach, SC. Over 90 golfers, male and female, enjoyed two days of sun-soaked weather and golf at the Indian Wells and Litchfield Country Clubs.

Upon arrival on Saturday, many of the PNA golfers enjoyed an evening of camaraderie and fraternalism, including a night of karaoke led by PNA National Business Director Val Pawlos, at Neil and Pam's Pub.  After the 1st day of golf, the golfers and guests enjoyed an evening of hospitality with an outstanding buffet at the VFW Post in Murrells Inlet.

After the final and second day of the golf tournament, an awards banquet with a delicious buffet dinner was followed by the presentations of cash awards and prizes to the flight and contest winners. PNA Fraternal Activities Chairman and National Secretary Charles A. Komosa thanked the golfers and offered greetings on behalf of PNA National President Frank Spula and PNA National Treasurer Marian Grabowski who could not attend the tournament due to other PNA business responsibilities. Charles A. Komosa then introduced and thanked Mrs. Mary Srodon, PNA Fraternal Activities Coordinator and her husband John who drove 17 hours from Chicago with all the tee signs, tournament supplies and prizes to Myrtle Beach, SC., former District I Commissioner and golfer John Mailloux with lady friend Ms. Donna Corrigan, PNA National Fraternal Director (Pittsburgh) Jeffrey Twardy and introduced PNA Business Director and Fraternal Activities member Val Pawlos who welcomed the 90 plus PNA golfers and guests to 55th National Golf Tournament. After PNA National Business Director Val Pawlos and PNA National Secretary Charles A. Komosa handed out all the awards to the golfers, a hearty thank you and farewell were offered to all! The fraternal torch continued to burn that evening for some of the PNA golfers and guests at the Wicked Tuna Bar to the wee hours of the morning!

The Polish National Alliance Officers, Directors, and Fraternal Committee members want to thank each and every golfer and guest who attended or assisted with the success of Polish National Alliance's 2017 55th National Golf Tournament in Myrtle Beach, SC. A special thank you to Directors Val Pawlos, Jeff Twardy, and members of Lodge 1052 for their enormous involvement in the success of this tournament.

We had an outstanding tournament filled with fraternalism, great golf, friendship, and fun!  I can't thank all of you enough for your support by participating in this year's tournament.
