Several area golf courses participating in Patriot Day Golf event this weekend with money raised going to help the families of fallen heroes!

Panama City Beach, FL-- To the links now and come this weekend, area golfers get the chance to help out the "Folds of Honor Foundation", which raises scholarship money for the families of soldiers killed or wounded in battle. The way to do that is to play golf at an area course that's participating in Patriot Golf Day this Friday through Monday.

"In addition to giving a dollar for each round of golf, we'll ask each golfer would you like to support the Patriot Day initiative? And if that's the case, we'll add another dollar to the round of golf and at the end of the weekend we'll tally up the numbers and hopefully they'll be great."
