Sandestin Golf And Beach Resort Offers Free Golf And Free Night This Labor Day
Leads Effort To Thank Military Men And Women
Resort Supports Folds of Honor and Patriot Golf Day Program 


Destin, FL (August 2011) –  This Labor Day Weekend, September 2-5, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is thanking the men and women who serve our country by offering free rounds of 18 holes of golf with only the purchase of a golf car fee.

Active or retired members of the U.S. military are invited to play on any of Sandestin’s three championship golf courses, Raven Golf Club, Baytowne Golf Club, and The Links Course September 2-5.  The golf car fee is $20 at each course.  Golfers can call 850-267-8155 to book their tee times and are not restricted to times on any course.

Sandestin is also leading the way among golf courses nationwide with its participation in national Patriot Golf Day.  Sandestin is calling patriots including guests and local residents to action by asking them to add $1 to their green fee or make another donation amount of their choice that will go directly to the Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization that provides post-secondary educational scholarships for the children and spouses of military men and women who were disabled or killed while serving our country.  The Patriot Golf Day Campaign is jointly supported by The PGA of America and the United States Golf Association. 

According to Rick Hileman, PGA director of resort golf operations, Sandestin is honored to open our courses in this creative way to honor the men and women who have so bravely served our country.  “Based on the success of Sandestin’s program last year, we anticipate hosting hundreds of golfers this Labor Day holiday weekend,” said Hileman.

Sandestin has been named one of the Top Golf Resorts in the country by various national media, and voted the Finest for Golf on Florida’s Emerald Coast by Northwest Florida Daily News.

For all individuals or families wanting to have a great weekend getaway for the Labor Day holiday, Sandestin is offering a free night with the purchase of two.   Separately, there are special military rates available as well.   For details, call 1-866-91-BEACH or visit
