Country fans can hit the links with some of their favorite stars next month — and do it for a patriotic cause. Registration is now open for a first annual golf tournament hosted by Folds of Honor Tennessee.
Taking place Monday, June 21, at the Governors Club in Brentwood, Tennessee, the tournament will feature big stars and a big mission. Folds of Honor is a 501C-3 national nonprofit “dedicated to providing educational scholarships to the families of fallen and disabled American service members,” and has already given out nearly 25,000 scholarships since its founding in 2007. But it’s events like this celebrity golf tournament that help make it possible.
Fans and supporters can sign up now to field a foursome alongside some of Nashville’s biggest sports heroes and country stars. Those committed early include Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, plus artists like Lee Brice, Tyler Farr, Jamey Johnson, Chase Rice, Charles Esten, Randy Houser, Mitchell Tenpenny, Michael Ray, Jelly Roll and Dee Jay Silver. But that’s not all.
About “two dozen” sports figures and entertainers will also take part in an auction after the tournament — bidding on luxurious items like a super-yacht stay at the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix with racer Danica Patrick; a round of golf in Las Vegas with Lee Brice and LPGA pro-golfer Danielle Kang; a four-day dove hunt in Argentina and more. The event will then finish off with a special concert by the acclaimed bluegrass band, The Steeldrivers.
“We are excited to bring together our friends from the worlds of sports, entertainment, and corporate America for the common cause of helping military families who paid the ultimate price to preserve our freedom,” said Christopher King, President for Folds of Honor, Tennessee. “We can’t all serve in the military, but we can support the families of those who protect our country.”
Individual player costs start at $1,250, and sponsorship opportunities start at $2,500. For more information is available at the To purchase a foursome or become a sponsor of the Folds of Honor Celebrity Golf Tournament, visit the website.
