The DCUC Conference Difference

DCUC's Annual Conference is the ONLY conference that brings the DoD/Military perspective to credit union issues in a place where you can network directly with other CEOs, Executives and other top decision makers who face the same challenges in serving the military community.

  • Attend all educational sessions to learn about the latest critical issues that affect the Defense Credit Union industry

  • Connect with other Defense Credit Unions at meals and events to share professional experiences and gain valuable insights about what’s happening now

  • Network with our corporate sponsors throughout the week to learn about how they can help you improve critical aspects of your business, especially in emerging technologies

  • Give Back during our Annual Conference with a Purpose and help raise funds for our 2023 military-related charity

2023 Annual VADM Vincent Lascara Golf Tournament

Monday, August 7th, 2023

Sponsored by

Join us in Colorado Springs, CO on August 7 on the West Course for the 2023 Annual VADM Vincent Lascara Golf Tournament. Our DCUC tradition of great times and fun golf, plus a chance to help support our conference charity, Robert Irvine Foundation, is a winning combination!

Get ready for rolling fairways, multi-level greens, and demanding hazards at the stunning yet formidable West Course. At 6,800 feet, this 18-hole course has more doglegs and steeply-angled greens than the East Course, and offers breathtaking views of both the mountains and Colorado Springs. The West Course plays tighter off the tee, with more heavily tree-lined holes than the East Course, and also gives players an array of spectacular approach shots. Don't let the stunning mountain views distract you; our West Course may look like a postcard, but it offers a very challenging and rewarding round of golf. The West Course was also the host site of the 1998 PGA Cup Matches.

8:00 AM
12:00 PM
