The green at Grand Bear Golf Club today was filled for the ‘Inaugural Patriot Golf Day,’ all for a wonderful cause.
Shotgun started the tournament at 9 a.m. with community members and golf fans teeing off.
There were also some great prizes like vacation packages, free golf and clubs, and also a gift certificate.
This tournament benefited Folds of Honor which provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members. They have given 4,500 scholarships this year alone.
For their first year, they say they are proud of the success with 24 teams participating. Grand Bear Head Golf Professional Ian Kahn said, “When we started this a month and a half ago, I was not expecting a large turnout. Low and behold, the community, our members completely supported us. This is the very infant stages of this event that we are going to grasp onto.”
Grand Bear says they hope to make this tournament bigger and better every year to become a large contributing club to Folds of Honor.
