Troon-Affiliated Facilities Supporting Memorial Golf Fund

Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon brand-affiliated golf facilities across the United States will participate in the 9/11 Memorial Golf Day next week.

Funds raised from the September 11 event will benefit the 9/11 Memorial Golf Fund and its founding charities: the Veteran Golfers Association (VGA), David Feherty’s Troops First, The Semper Fi & America’s Fund, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and The Independence Fund.

“Troon is a proud year-round supporter of the VGA and is honoured to support theses veteran service organisations,” said a spokesperson for Troon.

The Troon family of brands includes Troon Golf, Troon Privé, Troon International, Honours Golf, OB Sports and Indigo Golf Partners.

The 9/11 Memorial Golf Fund was founded in 2021 by several veteran service organisations, including the VGA, VFW, Semper Fi & America’s Fund, Troops First Foundation, and The Independence Fund, in commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The group’s mission is to collectively impact the veteran communities they serve as much as possible on 9/11 each year through a series of fund-raising platforms, including golf tournaments and partner collaboration.

At participating Troon brand-affiliated golf facilities, funds will be raised through various golf tournaments and on-course competitions.

“It is hard to believe this year marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks,” said Mike Ryan, Chief Operating Officer at Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

He added: “9/11 Memorial Golf Day is a golf industry-wide fund-raiser that we are pleased to support. Funds raised will help these incredible veterans’ organisations execute their missions of honouring the sacrifices and memory of our military members killed or disabled while serving our country since 9/11.”

Golfers and non-golfers alike can support the 9/11 Memorial Golf Fund by texting ‘911Golf’ to 91999 to make a US$9.11 donation. For more information on the 9/11 Memorial Golf Fund, visit https://911memorialgolffund.org
