Traced all the way back to 15th Century Scotland, the gentleman’s game: Golf. 18 holes on crisp green grass, the sunshine permeating each blade, and with each stroke comes rapture. Through the years, the game as evolved from a symbol of class and wealth to a sport of paralleled intensity and leisure, and now golf has even become philanthropic. Through golf, a doorway to doing good via charity tournaments and events, has been opened. Come this fall, golf has allowed for an opportunity to, not only benefit the good of another, but also a personal interaction with our Nation’s veterans that have sacrificed so much for our freedom to enjoy the game.
Saturday September 6th, 2014, Combat Veterans to Careers is bringing to the Palmer Legends Country Club the inaugural Battle Buddy Golf Tournament. The tournament is a Step Aside Scramble for 4-player teams plus a Combat Veteran “Battle Buddy”.
