Golf Life took a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Tulsa, OK to visit the Patriot Golf Club and the Folds Of Honor Headquarters. Major Dan Rooney, an American hero and founder of the Folds of Honor allowed us into his office to learn more about this beautiful golf course and amazing organization.
MORE ABOUT THE PATRIOT GOLF CLUB & FOLDS OF HONOR HQ
Major Dan Rooney still flies fast jets for freedom as well as runs an organization called the Folds of Honor. The Folds of Honor is an organization that provides scholarship opportunites to spouces and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. Their Motto: “Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy”.
Major Dan Rooney was returning home from his second tour in Iraq as an F16 pilot for the Oklahoma National Guard. He quickly became painfully aware of the reality families face and go through when a loved one in uniform is fallen or disabled. Major Dan decided to do something about by creating Folds of Honor.
Today, Folds of Honors stands tall in Tulsa, OK with the backing of a beautiful golf course; The Patriot Golf Club. The two pieces live next door to each other and they work hand-in-hand to Honor The Sacrifice and Educate The Legacy. One of the coolest golf tournaments this country has to offer happens every Memorial Day at the Patriot Golf Club. Celebrities, Top Executives, PGA Tour Players and more stand side by side and play golf with military veterans in what is called ” The Patriot Golf Day”.
Our Host, Colton Little, stood inside of Major Dan Rooney’s office (inside Folds of Honor) to learn more about the impact the Patriot Golf Club and the Folds of Honor are creating for military and military veteran.
