SAVANNAH, GA (September 1, 2009) – Savannah Quarters Country Club supports Patriot Golf Day by inviting all active and retired military and their families to play the Club’s Greg Norman Signature Golf Course. As an extended offering in partnership with Patriot Golf Day members of the military may play golf at the private Club between September 4 and September 11. A portion of the greens fees will be contributed to the Folds of Honor Foundation, the chosen benefactor of Patriot Golf Day.
Members of the military interested in playing golf at Savannah Quarters Country Club may book tee times through the Club Golf Shop by calling 912.450.2700. Military members will pay preferred greens fees of only $35. For each military member playing the course between September 4 and 11 the Club will make a $5 donation to the Folds of Honor Foundation. Each military member will also receive a $5 gift certificate.
The United States Golf Association and the PGA of America have partnered with the Folds of Honor Foundation to host the third annual Patriot Golf Day. Patriot Golf Day, established by Major Dan Rooney, a PGA professional, USGA member and F-16 pilot in the 125th Fighter Squadron of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, is a nationwide campaign that benefits the Folds of Honor Foundation.
Donations raised through Patriot Golf Day will go to the Folds of Honor Foundation (FoldsofHonor.org), which provides educational scholarships to families of those who have become disabled or lost their lives in the line of duty. The inaugural Patriot Golf Day in 2007 resulted in donations of more than $1.1 million from more than 3,200 golf facilities. Last year, contributions of approximately $2 million were received from more than 3,800 golf facilities nationwide. In the last two years, more than 550 educational scholarships have been awarded through the Folds of Honor Foundation.
