Tucson Country Club has been participating in Patriot Golf Day since 2008. For Michael Haywood, working with Folds of Honor is a natural fit, and his entire club takes pride in conducting first-class events to benefit families of our nation’s heroes.
Growing up in a military family and having served in the United States Army himself, Michael understands the sacrifice our service members and their families make while serving our country.
This year, his club was able to participate in a few different ways. They hosted an annual Salute To Service event that brought together members, guests and local service members to participate in a five-player team event.
In addition, the club has a Patriot Legacy Fund that keeps their membership engaged year-round. The annual fund is supported by monthly contributions on participants’ membership bills. To date, the fund has contributed more than $100,000 to Folds of Honor.
Michael also participated in Patriot Teaching and Coaching Day, a new Folds of Honor initiative. Through his teaching academy, The Player’s Institute, he engaged the local community, military units and members for a day of complimentary instruction, special club fitting and demonstration. This event raised more than $8,600.
“Knowing our Patriot Golf Day efforts contribute to the betterment of the survivors of fallen and wounded service members brings a unique and special feeling that you can only get from contributing to a cause far bigger than yourself.”
