About Patriot Golf Day

This Labor Day Weekend (Sep. 4-Sep. 7), golf courses around the United States are teaming up with Folds of Honor to host National Patriot Golf Day. At those courses, golfers will be asked to add an extra dollar to their greens fees to help fund Folds of Honor and raise money to provide tuition and tutoring to families of military men and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty.

Since 2017, Patriot Golf Day has helped raise more than $47 million for Folds of Honor. Through efforts such as this, Folds of Honor has been able to reward more than 16,000 scholarships to military families.

A Message From

Gary Woodland

Gary Woodland and Major Dan Rooney both played collegiate golf at Kansas, and when Gary finished school, he immediately joined the mission. "It's one thing to give back, but it's another thing to meet them, and talk to them, and hear their stories."
