The event on Sunday, October 28, will open 27 of the management firm’s private country clubs across Texas to the public, to benefit Folds of Honor and the George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative and raise proceeds for military veterans and their families.
ClubCorp has announced it will host the Patriot Golf Day tournament on Sunday, October 28, at 27 of its private country clubs across Texas, to benefit Folds of Honor and the George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative. The tournament will raise donations and awareness for military veterans and their families.
Proceeds raised will be provided to Folds of Honor, an organization that provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled service veterans. Patriot Golf Day will also benefit the Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative, which honors the service and sacrifice of all post-9/11 veterans by ensuring that they and their families make a successful transition to civilian life.
“Patriot Golf Day was created to spotlight the service and resilience of military veterans, and honor the sacrifices and struggles that veterans and their families face,” said ClubCorp CEO David Pillsbury. “We are honored to use our platform to bring awareness to these issues, express gratitude for our military and encourage the communities where our clubs reside to join us in this effort, which will have a direct impact on so many families throughout Texas.”
ClubCorp will donate its courses, opening the management firm’s private clubs to the public, to host Patriot Golf Day across San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, and Austin communities to further minimize operational costs and ensure that the maximum amount of proceeds raised will go towards supporting military veterans and their families.
“Providing educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members is our core mission,” said Major Dan Rooney, Founder of Folds of Honor. “ClubCorp and the Patriot Golf Day will help us honor their sacrifice and educate their legacy right here in Texas.”
Added Colonel Matt Amidon, Director of the Military Service Initiative at the Bush Institute: “Our history with ClubCorp began in 2011 with our inaugural Warrior Open and we’re excited to continue to honor military service members and their families with their support,” “We are thankful for the strong relationship with ClubCorp and our shared vision to encourage the community to support the military through initiatives such as Patriot Golf Day.”
Patriot Golf Day attracts country clubs from across the country. Of those taking part in Texas, ClubCorp makes up the largest number of participating clubs at more than 35 percent, and the tournament will be open to members and non-members alike.
