A Retreat Recap by Travis Woolf

In this post, Travis shares about a recent CGF retreat that happened at Toy Romo’s house over the summer.

Tony Romo’s Retreat

This summer was a first ever for College Golf Fellowship. Through a relationship with CGF President Brad Payne, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo hosted a retreat with his wife, Candice, in their home near Dallas.

We had 50+ college players and coaches from all over the country come stay at Tony’s home for three days. The activities included football, basketball, spike ball, ping pong, watching game film with Tony, eating a lot of food, enjoying fellowship with staff and other college golfers, and learning God’s Word from the Village Church’s Josh Patterson.

Josh taught over the “why” in life. He pointed to the scriptures and showed us that, because of our sinful nature, the reason we do what we do, is solely for ourselves and never satisfying. Josh then walked through the Good News of the Gospel and reminded us all that it is only by a relationship with the savior Jesus Christ that our “why” in life can be satisfying and meaningful.

Overall it was an amazing week of fun and time to reflect on why we are here and what God has done for us. I feel like the retreat could be summed up for many of the players as one of the UTA players in my small group said it, “I came here to have a fun time with Tony Romo, but I realize now that the reason I came was to really come back to my faith that I had been wandering from for a while.”
