Putting for Patriots
Putting for Patriots is an annual fund raising event conducted by the Pirate's Island, Jungle Golf and Pirate's Cove chains of adventure golf courses. We proudly support their efforts in raising funds for three pre-screened charities, that as a group efficiently serve our wounded, their families and the survivors of fallen military members. The event takes place each May, culminating on Memorial Day weekend. Each year, 36 participating courses donate a % of their total sales on the Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Weekend and accept customer donations, which are turned over to the charities.
This is the second year Discover Teas joins forces and will be sponsoring a hole as well as promoting this event in an effort to support our troops and our local community. This is truly a win - win situation. You get to enjoy a beautiful weekend playing adventure golf and it will go towards helping three charities that are filling in the gaps in the coverage our government is taking care of.
