Metro Parks offering affordable family golf package during Labor Day Weekend
Wednesday August 26, 2009
To encourage local families to visit their municipally-owned golf courses, Metro Parks is offering an affordable family golfing package at its nine golf courses during Labor Day weekend.
For only $20, a family of up to four members can play nine holes at any Metro Parks course. The $20 includes greens and cart fees, and families can take advantage of the deal after 4 p.m. on three days: Saturday, September 5; Sunday, September 6 and Monday, September 7.
“This is fast becoming one of our most popular promotions at our golf courses,” said Metro Parks Director Mike Heitz. “Bringing the family together to enjoy the game of golf is a great way to celebrate Labor Day weekend.”
Throughout the weekend, golfers will also have the ability to support military families through the Patriot Golf Day fundraiser, which raises money for postsecondary educational scholarships for the children and spouses of soldiers killed or disabled while serving their country. Golfers are asked to add $1 to their greens fees to help support the Folds of Honor Foundation, which awards the scholarships.
