Patriot Golf Day – Aug. 29 – Sept. 1, 2008

Beginning Friday, Aug. 29 through Monday, Sept. 1, golfers nationwide will be asked to donate a minimum of $1 in support of Patriot Golf Day. All funds raised will benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation to provide educational scholarships to families of those who have become disabled or lost their lives in the line of duty. In 2007, some 3,200 golf facilities nationwide participated in Patriot Golf Day, raising more than $1 million dollars. The Roanoke area golf courses participating this year are: Ol’ Monterey, Hidden Valley, Ashley Plantation, and Hanging Rock. Pictures courtesy of PLAYGOLFAMERICA.
