This Labor Day weekend will be the fifth annual Patriot Golf Day Weekend during which golf courses across America unite to raise money for military families. From Friday through Monday golfers will be asked to add $1 to their greens fees to support the Folds of Honor Foundation.
This nonprofit Foundation provides educational scholarships for the families of injured or killed servicemen and women. Maj. Dan Rooney – a former F-16 pilot, USGA member, and PGA Professional – founded Folds of Honor and initiated Patriot Golf Day in 2007, which has raised over $8.5 million for more than 2000 military dependents.
The PGA and USGA have been promoting Patriot Golf Day with public service announcements that you may have seen while watching coverage of the U.S. Open and PGA Championship. On the organization’s website former President George W. Bush – the Honorary Chairman of Patriot Golf Day weekend for the second consecutive year – invites the public to participate this weekend.
There are multiple ways to support the Folds of Honor Foundation: give a dollar on top of your greens fees during Labor Day weekend, purchase Patriot Golf Day merchandise, and online donations are also possible. An easy way to say thank you to our servicemen and women, the simple donation of one dollar will bring further meaning to your golf rounds this weekend.
