The Mt. Juliet Police Explorers Post 465 has announced the date for the annual Mt. Juliet Police Explorers Golf Tournament. 

The tournament is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 25 at 1 p.m. with lunch and registration beginning at 11:30 a.m.

The public is invited to join Police Chief James Hambrick and other Police Officers at a fun event that will benefit the youth of Mt. Juliet. 

The tournament will take place at Windtree Golf Club in Mt. Juliet, and registration is $100 per player. 

Windtree Golf Club is widely regarded as one of Nashville’s finest-conditioned public golf courses. 

Golfers of all abilities will appreciate this wonderfully playable, well-maintained golf course and tournament.

Since the tournament’s inception in 2001, the event has generated funding for the Mt. Juliet Police Department’s Explorer program, and it has provided financial assistance to the department’s Christmas giving program: Shop With a Cop.

Donations from this event will aid youth related programs, including sending the Explorer Post to competitions within the state to compete in police-related simulated exercises with other explorer posts. 

In addition, donations aid in purchasing uniforms and equipment for the police explorer youth.

Anyone interested in participating or providing a sponsorship is asked to call Officer James Christensen of the Mt. Juliet Police Department at (615) 773-6253 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
