Dr. Michael Doran Memorial Golf Tournament
Important update! – The Fourth Annual Dr. Michael Doran Memorial Golf Tournament, scheduled for Sunday, October 4th, 2020 has been postponed! We are hoping to reschedule for the Spring of 2021! Updates will be sent to returning golfers as we have them. If you have not played before but would like updates, please contact Kevin O’Neill at Kevin.O’Neill@mcpsmd.net.
Dr. Michael Doran was the beloved principal of Thomas S. Wootton High School for 12 years. He was a huge soccer fan and supporter of all athletics. Tragically, Dr. Doran passed away in the summer of 2015. To continue the tradition he established of excellence in athletics and to support all of the athletics teams at Wootton, we are happy to host the Fourth Annual Dr. Michael Doran Memorial Golf Tournament.
Why: This event is a fundraiser for the Wootton High School Athletics Department and Wootton Booster Club. All proceeds will directly benefit all athletics teams at Wootton High School.
Who: Open to all
What (Format): Golfers playing in teams of four will compete in a scramble style tournament, also known as “Captain’s Choice”. Each golfer hits a ball from the same location, the team decides on the best shot, then all golfers go to the location of the best shot and take their next shot. The process continues until the hole is completed. This format is great for golfers of all skill levels!
When: Sunday, October, 4th, 2020 – Tentative 8:30 a.m. Shotgun Start
Where: Blue Mash Golf Course, 5821 Olney-Laytonsville Road Laytonsville, MD 20882

Blue Mash Golf Course
Blue Mash Golf Course in Laytonsville, MD is the premier public golf course in all of Montgomery County, MD, and one of the top courses in the entire Washington Metropolitan area. Voted Best Golf Course in Montgomery County by Montgomery Gazette readers, Blue Mash is less than 15 minutes from Rockville and Gaithersburg downtowns, 20 minutes from Germantown, and less than 10 minutes from Olney. Designed by world renown architect Arthur Hills, Blue Mash features a mix of links style, parkland, wooded, and water holes. There are no forced carries so it is manageable for beginners and high handicap golfers, and low handicap golfers will find its length from the back tees, strategic bunker placement, and devilish, well protected greens plenty of challenge.
