Published 4:57 pm Thursday, August 9, 2012
The Country Club of Brewton – managed by Billy Casper Golf (BCG) – will host the second annual “World’s Largest Golf Outing” to benefit Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) on Monday, August 13.
The simultaneous golf outing at more than 100 BCG-managed courses in 24 states is open to golfers of all abilities and does not require a USGA handicap.
Registration for the World’s Largest Golf Outing is at www.worldslargestgolfouting.com.
Golfer check-in is at 7 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Entry fees are $30 and include a round of golf, cart rental, range balls, lunch, awards reception, on-course contests and prizes.
Michael Barber, General Manager of the Country Club of Brewton, he hopes the golf course in Brewton will see many participants for the event Monday.
“This is the second year for Billy Casper Golf to participate in the Wounded Warrior WLGO,” Barber said. “The outing is held at each of our 100 plus managed properties around the U.S. With Brewton being the smallest market in which we manage a course we hope to sign up at least 36 players for the event.”
Part of the event proceeds benefit WWP, 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, BCG courses hosted more than 2,200 golfers at 80 properties nationwide and raised $43,700 for WWP.
“We are committed to beat the contribution BCG and its loyal, altruistic golfers made to Wounded Warrior Project last year,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. “Golfers and Wounded Warriors who played in the 2011 event gave it rave reviews and we expect the same this time around.”
“We salute Billy Casper Golf for establishing this ground-breaking outing that provides a healthy physical activity for Wounded Warriors and raises funds for WWP 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.”
The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors. WWP’s purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and service to meet their needs.
