Welcome to our Patriot Golf Day online donation page.
Lake Marion Golf Course is hosting its 10th Annual Patriot Day Tournament over the weekend of Labor Day in conjunction with the PGA of America. Proceeds from the tournament are given to the Folds of Honor Foundation which provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of service members disabled or killed as a result of their military service to our great nation.
Lake Marion’s participation with Patriot Day began in 2007 by asking players to donate a dollar. Then in 2009, the course and employees wanted to do more to help the cause, so they hosted a tournament. The event was a huge success and really brought the course and the community together in support of our Veterans and those currently serving.
The event has become one of the largest in the area and is growing each year. We have three separate shotgun starts, 300 plus players and 40 plus staff and volunteers took part in the event. Over 100 local businesses and civic groups donated to the cause and in all over $16,000 was donated. This brings our total donations since 2007 to more than $74,000.
We invite you to please consider embracing the call to duty by clicking the “Donate Now” button. Scholarships are awarded in $5,000 increments but there is no donation too small.
We are incredibly grateful for your donation, thank you!
