Stonewall Resort Offering Free Golf to Military Members


Stonewall Resort Offering Free Golf to Military Members

Sept. 12 as Part of Freedom Day USA


All Veterans, Active Duty, Reserves and Guard golf for FREE starting at 11am 


Weston, WV (September 2013) – On September 12th, businesses across the United States will join in Freedom Day USA – a national Thank You Movement for the members of our military and their immediate families, including veterans.  As part of this initiative, Stonewall Resort will provide a free round of golf to veterans, active duty, reserves and Guard beginning at 11:00 a.m. on the Arnold Palmer Signature Course, resort officials announced.

“We believe there is no higher sacrifice than to serve and defend our country as a member of the military,” said Mike Hager, general manager for Stonewall Resort.  “It is our privilege to honor our veterans and active military with a bit of rest and relaxation in the form of golfing at the Palmer Course on September 12th.”

Hager said active and former members of the military must provide a form of military identification and should contact the pro shop at (304) 269-8885 to make their tee time. 

Dr. Robert Martino, founder of the Freedom Day USA event, said, “Our men and women of our Armed Forces make great personal sacrifices in order to secure and protect our Freedoms.  Their families have endured hardships and some have given all they have so that we may live in peace – free to pursue our dreams. Let’s join together to say ‘Thank You’ for their sacrifices and for our freedom.”
