The CVH Animal Sanctuary is honored to host this year’s golf invitational at the stunning and exclusive Stanwich Club of Greenwich. Annually ranked as the #1 Golf Course in the State of Connecticut by Golf Digest, the club has hosted several PGA, USGA, AJGA, and Collegiate local and national championships. While continuing its focus to be a Championship course, Stanwich has recently renovated 9 holes during 2017 and 2018 utilizing the world-renowned architects from the Tom Fazio Group.


All proceeds of this extraordinary golf experience support the creation of the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary in Newtown, CT – a safe haven and place of healing in honor of Catherine Hubbard, who lost her life at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. Learn more about the sanctuary and our progress.

We hope you’ll join us for an unforgettable afternoon of prestigious golf play and meet some special animal ambassadors who may inspire a few birdies and eagles on the course!
