“We expect great participation at this charitable golf tournament and we encourage early registration so that no golfer is left out,” said Mark Brady, Arnold Golf Club superintendent.
The two player, 18-hole scramble offers three flights, with first, second and third place awards per flight. Entry fees are $40.00 per player or $30.00 per Arnold Golf Club Member. Fifty percent of each entry fee will be donated directly to Folds of Honor. Play is limited to 90 players/45 teams.

“Folds of Honor is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to families of military servicemen and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces,” Brady said. “The organization, founded in 2007, is based in Owasso, Oklahoma, and has awarded more than 10,000 scholarships in all 50 states, plus Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.”
“Patriot’s Day commemorates the Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775 – the first battles of the American Revolutionary War,” he added. “Patriot’s Day is celebrated in many different American cities, sometimes on different days to complement local events with a historic or military heritage theme,” he said. “The Arnold Golf Club is extremely proud to commemorate Patriot’s Day with our tournament to support Folds of Honor and our nation’s military veterans for their many sacrifices,” Brady said.
The Arnold Golf Club Patriot’s Day tournament will offer Mulligans for $10 per team (1 per player) with 100% of proceeds donated to Folds of Honor. $10 Skins (awarded by flight) will be paid as a 50/50 with 50% of proceeds donated to Folds of Honor.
