The Del Mar Country Club Golf Tournament and Dinner Gala in support of the Navy SEALs and their fellow warriors will take place on September 18, 2021 in Southern California.
Join SOF Support and the Del Mar Country club as we host an exceptional group of patriotic Americans for a competitive day on the links in Rancho Santa Fe, California. Following the tournament, the Silent Auction and Dinner Gala offers an opportunity to rub shoulders with celebrities, sports figures, business leaders, and some of the most renowned figures in U.S. Special Operations to raise money for the Navy SEALs and their fellow warriors.
SOF Support and the Del Mar Country Club jointly run this event every year to support the Navy SEALs and their fellow warriors. Event proceeds fund SOF Support initiatives for the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community.
In 2019, the event raised over $1.5 million. In 2021, we are treating our most committed donors to exclusive SOF experiences, including an opportunity to train with former Navy SEALs. For more information about our exclusive donor experiences, visit the Sponsorship Opportunities page.

We are both pleased and humbled to announce that
David Beamer, the father of Todd Beamer, will be
joining us for this 20th Anniversary special remembrance.
Among the tangle of memories we all have from that day back in September of 2001 the words “let’s roll” are sure to stand out. Those were the last words heard as Todd Beamer, along with the other courageous passengers, stormed the cockpit of United Airlines Flight 93.
Since that infamous day, Beamer’s father, David, has become a passionate advocate for his son and has led the way in educating the public about Flight 93. David captured the essence of that day when he said:
“We’re very proud of Todd and 39 other free people on Flight 93 that day. They had the opportunity to fight back. They did, it was a counter-attack, and it was a victory.”
The passengers on Flight 93, through their heroic actions, prevented the terrorist from reaching Washington DC and inflicting
even more harm upon our nation.
