Jimmy Barrett’s Blue Ball Open

Back To The Future 2015
Please join us for the 11th Annual Jimmy Barrett Blue Ball Open! By participating in this event you will be helping our nation’s wounded veterans and their families in a very tangible way. All proceeds go to support the Richmond Fisher House at McGuire Veterans Hospital.

The tournament will be held Friday, March 20th at the Club at Viniterra next to New Kent Winery. This year’s Blue Ball is Friday March 20th at the Club at Viniterra next to the New Kent Winery. This year’s theme is “Back to the Future”. 2015 was the exact year that Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future II, so you can imagine what kind of crazy holes we’ll have for you this year. Jimmy will be telling you more about that on his morning show.

There will be two rounds of golf – a morning round and an afternoon round. There will be a brief awards ceremony after each round at New Kent Winery next door to the golf course.

Registrants will be asked to choose their preference for morning or afternoon flights:

  • Morning Flight – 8:00am shotgun start
  • Afternoon Flight – 1:30pm shotgun start


  • Registration is $600 for a TEAM
  • Individual Registration is $150

Register Early!
The maximum number of players is 80 players/flight (20 teams). It sells out every year. Preferences for flights will be matched on a first-come-first-served basis. You can play as a team of four, or as an individual. Individuals will be placed on a team that needs players or form a new team as needed.

You can pay by credit card or check/money order once you complete the form. For payment by check, please print a copy of your registration to accompany payment. Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Richmond Fisher House. Cash is also accepted at the WRVA studios. All registration fees must be paid in advance!
