Originally called “The Officers’ Club Golf Course,” the Medal of Honor Golf Course began in 1930 as a six-hole layout. The course is open year round to Active Duty and Retired Military, DoD civilian employees, family members, FBI Academy, National Guard and Reserve personnel and the general public. You’ve heard of walking the greens but ‘running the greens?’ The Medal of Honor 8K puts the “fore” in this 4.97 mile run that stretches across the tranquil grounds of Quantico’s Medal of Honor golf course on December 7.
