Scottsdale, Ariz. – On Monday, August 3, 11 Troon® facilities joined a total of 132 golf courses across America hosting the fifth annual World’s Largest Golf Outing that raised more than $1 million, a record high, for Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).
Through a portion of player entry fees, contests and 100% of donations, participating Troon courses contributed $46,046 to WWP, the national organization that honors and empowers injured servicemen and women, their caregivers and families. Of the 12,300-plus participants, nearly 600 – including 44 WWP Alumni – teed it up at Troon courses from New York to Hawaii to make meaningful differences in the lives of Wounded Warriors.
