Patriot Golf Day
By Torleif Sorenson on 8/31/12
This weekend marks a series of Patriot Golf Day events at golf courses all across the United States.
Donations go to the Folds of Honor Foundation, a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships to the families of American servicemen and women disabled or killed in the line of duty.
You can find a list of participating golf courses here.
Patriot Golf Day is jointly supported by both the United States Golf Association and the PGA of America. In fact, a PGA of America member, U.S. Air Force Maj. Dan Rooney, started the Folds of Honor Foundation in part because a sizable portion of children and spouses of servicemembers killed or injured in action do not qualify for federal benefits.
While Patriot Golf Day events take place year-round due to the varying golf seasons in North America, Labor Day weekend represents the highest-profile slate of events. Of course, you can make a tax-deductible contribution to the Folds of Honor Foundation at any time of the year.

Doubtful I will get out, but if I do, the course I would play is on the list, so I got that going for me.
I'm going to try to get out. It's unfortunate that the only course that is participating in the immediate area is one that i'm not able to play (private club). I'll have to convince the hunnie that I need to drive to York to play springwood.
Birdie, call them to see if they make an exception this weekend? If you offer to donate, they may let you play. If nothing else, you got no in your pocket.
