Tidewater Golf Club would like to thank you for your dedicated service, sacrifice and commitment to defending our freedom.
2012 – The Most Heroic Round You’ve Ever Played at Tidewater Golf Club.
You may love golf, enjoy watching and you may have played rounds of golf which have lead to incredible memories that will last a lifetime.The Most Heroic Round You’ve Ever Played
Imagine for a moment that your playing a round of golf today not for yourself at all, not for any special personal recognition or personal bragging rights and in fact your playing today to say thank you. This may be the most personal game of golf you may ever play because you are playing for one reason, you want to support and say thank you to the military service men and women for all they have given serving our great nation. A Salute From The Green a round of golf during The Patriot Day Charity Golf Tournament is that opportunity to say thank you whether you are playing or watching in support.
Our Patriots Have Given So Much – They Deserve Our Support and Applause
Will you now come out and give these heroes and their families a welcome they deserve, shake their hands, applaud, smile, take pictures and remind each of them how much you appreciate everything they have sacrificed for our freedom.
