Vail golfers can support scholarships for military families this Labor Day weekend. For Patriot Golf Day, players at the Vail Golf Club will have the option to add an extra dollar to their greens fees to help fund the Folds of Honor scholarships. The Folds of Honor is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides postsecondary educational scholarships for the children and spouses of military men and women disabled or killed while serving our nation. At Vail Golf Club, Patriot Golf Day will take place Friday through Monday, and Vail Recreation District encourages golfers to get out and enjoy the holiday on the greens and help support families of U.S. veterans.
