Five dollars of every green fee over Labor Day weekend will be donated to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which salutes the sacrifice of fallen and disabled service members by ensuring their families are not left behind. Through scholarships and other assistance, the foundation provides healing and hope to these families and seeks to rally the nation to support of those who have served and sacrificed for our country. Last year, Newport Dunes was among the top donors in the nation to the Folds of Honor Foundation, collecting over $1,700. 

In conjunction with our Patriot Golf Day celebration, Newport Dunes will be hosting its 2nd Annual “Red, White & Blue” Scramble. The event is open to everyone and the entry fee is only $65 per person and $55 for active military. $10 if each entry fee will be donated to the Folds of Honor Foundation.

Patriot Golf Day is the flagship fundraiser for the Folds of Honor Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides postsecondary educational scholarships for the children and spouses of military men and women disabled or killed while serving our great nation. On Labor Day weekend, golfers across the country are asked to add an extra dollar to their greens fees to fund Folds of Honor scholarships. The Patriot Golf Day campaign is jointly supported by The PGA of America and the United States Golf Association.

The inaugural Patriot Golf Day in 2007 was started by Major Dan Rooney, Founder of the Folds of Honor Foundation, F-16 Pilot, PGA Professional, and USGA member. On Labor Day 2007 Rooney asked golfers to add $1 to their greens fees. His request resulted in donations of more than $1.1 million from more than 3,200 golf facilities. In the last three years, golfers nationwide have been instrumental in raising more than $5.3 million through Patriot Golf Day events.
