Plan To Golf On Patriot Golf Day

48ee1e8a0a8f50dce4f8cb9ab418e211_M(TUCSON, AZ) Golfers nationwide are asked to donate a minimum of $1 to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation® to provide post secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation. Patriot Golf Day has raised more than $8 million dollars in the past four years and the Folds of Honor Foundation has awarded more than 2,100 scholarships.

PGA Professional Dan Rooney, an F-16 fighter pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard, is the founder of the Folds of Honor Foundation. Major Rooney, call sign Noonan, has served three tours in Iraq. ‘We have lost so many soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice. America can come together in the spirit of golf and have a dramatic impact. We have an opportunity to make a difference for the families who have made the ultimate sacrifice.’

This Labor Day Weekend, golfers across the country are asked to add an extra dollar to their green fees to fund Fold of Honor Scholarships.  The Patrior Golf Day Campaign is jointly supported by the PGA of America and the United States Golf Association.  For more information on the 2010 event and Southwest Section PGA participation visit http://issuu.com/go_golf_arizona/docs/satt_vol_8_iss_1f/60.  The following Southern Arizona courses are confirmed participants for this year (listed below are Tucson courses, unless otherwise noted – please check for additional courses added after this listing was published at Play Golf America):
