The Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco came back to town Thursday, September 13th. The open is apart of the Tour, the minor league version of the PGA Tour. The event is being hosted at the Hillcrest Country Club in Boise.

At every PGA and event, there are special accommodations for a select group of viewers. Military members, veterans, first responders and even their families are able to access the “Patriots Outpost”. At Hillcrest Country Club the Patriots Outpost is located on the 17th hole. It’s a private viewing area for select members and their family to enjoy the tournament and free food and drinks.

Steve Gilbrtson, a Vietnam veteran has been attending the Albertsons Boise Open for the past four years and with what he had to say about his experience with the Patriots Outpost, it’s safe to say this tournament is his favorite, “best… tournament I think in all of the just treat us so well”.

The tournament ends Sunday but tickets are still available. For more information on the Patriots Outpost, click here.
