A contract has been put in place for our 2017 Golf 2-7 Reunion at the Auburn Place Hotel & Suites,
Cape Girardeau, MO for the week of August 1st 2017. The Auburn Place Hotel and Suites has a Golf
2-7 reunion rate of $79 a night plus taxes. We have reserved all the rooms surrounding the pool on
both the 1st and 2nd floors. Each room has microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, iron and board,
phone and free Wi-Fi. The hotel offers complimentary hot breakfast and freshly baked cookies in the
evening. The hotel also offers whirlpool and a fitness room. The pool, recreation area and game room
are all part of our hospitality area this year.
These are things to consider when reserving your room. Smokers ask for an outside room, which have
outside balconies where smoking is allowed. This is a two-story hotel that does not have an elevator,
so if you don't like stairs ask for a ground level room.
To get our group rate and be included in our room block and meal counts for the Pool Party and
Banquet, you MUST call Auburn Place directly at this number (573) 651-4486 and ask for a room with
the Vietnam Veterans Marine group. Rooms must be reserved before July 7th to get our rate and in
our room block area. Any reservation made outside this process will not be located in our designated
area and will not be counted towards the Friday and Saturday nights meal count.
The hotel is surrounded with places to eat and things to do. A sample of places to eat that are within
walking distance are: Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Popeyes Chicken, Panera Bread, Honey Baked Ham
& Café, Texas Road House, and Cracker Barrel. Within a short drive are shopping malls, movie
theaters, Starbucks and a great walking/jogging trail at Cape La Croix Recreation Trail (10.5 miles
