About the Tournament

The 2015 Spc. Stephan L. Mace Annual Golf Classic will take place on Monday September 14, 2015 at the Loudoun Golf and Country Club

The Annual Stephan L. Mace Golf Classic serves as a way for Stephan’s friends, family, and community to come together to celebrate Stephan’s life and at the same time, raise funds and awareness for a veteran’s based nonprofit. Our mission is simple: to continue to honor Stephan’s sacrifice by raising money and awareness for our nation’s greatest treasure, our veterans. This year, Stephan’s brothers have asked that the proceeds benefit Team Red, White & Blue, a national 501(c)3 nonprofit with local reach.

Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) works to transform the way America supports its wounded veterans when they return from active duty. Team RWB’s intention is to create a community of veterans, their families, and American citizens who can enjoy authentic social interaction and shared experiences through activities and events all across America.

Stephan’s brothers have asked that the proceeds go to two specific Team RWB Chapters: The DC Chapter which includes an established Community Group in Ashburn, and Major Christopher Cordova’s local Team RWB Chapter in Houston.

About Stephan

Spc. Stephan Mace

Army Specialist Stephan L. Mace grew up in Purcellville with his parents and three brothers, Matthew, Bradley and Christopher. A handsome young man with big blue eyes and a smile that warmed those around him, Stephan’s energy was so strong, that if he sat still long enough, you could see it radiate from his body. From his earliest childhood friends to those who he served with, it seems that everyone in his life has a story about his mischievous side and how it brightened their lives. Stephan was at peace with the things in his life and was always ready, willing and able to help where it was needed. He had found a life-­‐base, one to which we all aspire.

Stephan wanted to serve the country he loved, so he joined the Army as a Calvary Scout and was an exemplary soldier. In May 2009, Stephan and his brothers-­‐in-­‐ arms were deployed to Combat Outpost (COP) Keating in the Nuristan province of Afghanistan. This small outpost was located at the bottom of three steep mountains and manned by 53 soldiers. On October 3, 2009, an estimated 400 Taliban, who held the high ground, attacked COP Keating. Stephan had just gotten off guard duty when the battle began. Instead of staying where it was a little safer, he ran back to one of the most vulnerable areas to help man a 50 cal gun, so others could fall back into safer positions.

Stephan sacrificed his life for his Army brothers and was posthumously awarded several medals including a Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and the Army Commendation Medal with Valor.
