Become a part of history by participating in the third annual “World’s Largest Golf Outing” to benefit Wounded Warrior Project® on Monday, August 12 at more than 110 golf courses around the country. The event is being conducted by Billy Casper Golf, which owns and operates more than 140 golf courses, country clubs and resorts. The Wounded Warrior Project® is a national organization that helps raise awareness and enlists the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
The World’s Largest Golf Outing will take place simultaneously at more than 110 Bill Casper Golf courses in 28 states and is open to golfers of all abilities and does not require a USGA handicap. Golfer check-in is at 11:30 a.m. (local time) with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. at most courses. Entry fees vary by location and include a $5 donation to Wounded Warrior Project®, round of golf, cart rental, range balls, lunch, awards reception, on-course contests and prizes.
Part of the event proceeds and all donations from non-players benefit the Wounded Warrior Project®, the national, nonpartisan organization that honors and empowers Wounded Warriors, some of whom will play in the World’s Largest Golf Outing. Teams are encouraged to raise additional funds to support this worthy cause.
Last year, Bill Casper Golf hosted more than 7,800 golfers at 100 of its golf courses in 24 states during the second annual “World’s Largest Golf Outing,” raising more than $400,000 for WWP. Launched in 2011, the 2012 event saw player registration and fundraising grew by 250% and 700%, respectively.
“We set the bar very high in 2012, but are committed to build on the generous donations golfers made to Wounded Warrior Project,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of Billy Casper Golf. “Golfers and Wounded Warriors who played the first two events gave it rave reviews and we expect the same this time around.”
“Each year this ground-breaking outing gets bigger and better, providing a healthy physical activity for Wounded Warriors and raising funds for Wounded Warrior Project® programs,” says Adam Silva, Chief Development Officer of Wounded Warrior Project. “Participating in sports helps injured service members restore their physical and emotional well-being.”
