Veterans Golf Classic
will be played June 5-8
By Chris King
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation is partnering with the Veterans Golf Classic as the popular event’s presenting sponsor. The 17th annual Veterans Golf Classic, which will be played June 5-8 on 12 of the Grand Strand’s best golf courses, is expected to attract more than 400 current or former members of the American military.
“The Disabled Veterans National Foundation is an ideal partner for the Veterans Golf Classic,” said Jeff Monday, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday’s tournament director. “The DVNF is an organization that focuses on the well-being of American heroes – the men and women who help make it possible for us to play golf tournaments – and we look forward to helping a very worthy cause.”
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation exists to provide critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and freedom.
Among the services DVNF provides are:
• Offering direct financial support to veteran organizations that address the unique needs of veterans and whose missions align with that of DVNF.
• Providing supplemental assistance to homeless and low-income veterans through the Health & Comfort program and various empowerment resources.
• Providing an online resource database that allows veterans to navigate the complex process of seeking benefits that they are entitled to as a result of their military service as well as additional resources they need.
• Serving as a thought leader on critical policy issues within the veteran community and educating the public accordingly.

The Veterans Golf Classic is a 54-hole, two-man team event that flights players based on their verifiable USGA handicap. The tournament is open to all current and former members of the military and their playing partner. For more information or to register for the event, go to www.VeteransClassicGolf.com.
