18 Hole Folds of Honor Par 3 Shootout

Together We Can Make A Difference
"It is our duty to preserve the freedom we so easily take for granted"
Join Desert Willow Golf Resort's PGA Golf Professionals for a day of golf and giving back at the 18 Hole Folds of Honor Par 3 Shootout. This exceptional event supports Folds of Honor, a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to providing educational scholarships to the children and spouses of our fallen and disabled service members who have bravely served our nation. As we enjoy the beautifully manicured greens of the Mountain View course, we'll be making a profound impact on the lives of these deserving individuals.

Participants will get the chance to play all 18 holes of the stunning Mountain View course, but with an exciting twist – every hole will be set to a challenging par 3 length. The thrill of this event lies in the diversity of the holes, ranging from a shortest tee-off at 80 yards to a more demanding 140-yard challenge. The entry fee is just $100 per player, and all green fees will be donated to the Folds of Honor foundation.

About Folds of Honor
Since 2007, Folds of Honor has provided Higher Education Scholarships & Children Fund Scholarships that are used to subsidize the costs of tuition, school books, fees, on-campus room and board, approved educational tutoring, and other approved educational expenses that a student's school may deem appropriate.

Your donations will go a long way in allowing Folds of Honor to continue to provide the necessary and appreciated assistance to the children and spouses of our fallen and disabled service members. Despite a record year, Folds of Honor will still have millions of dollars of qualified, unfunded requests. Your donation will go a long way to help honor their sacrifice and educate their legacy.

"Supporting Folds of Honor and spreading awareness of their mission is a way for me to give back to the families of Heroes who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice. I’m blessed to have an opportunity to educate guests of Desert Willow about the amazing achievements the Folds of Honor Family has accomplished so far. Even though over 86% of Folds of Honor’s fundraising efforts directly benefit scholarship recipients, there is an ever-growing need to raise money for qualified unfunded requests. We’ve got work to do and I appreciate everyone’s support!"

"I graduated high school in 2002 and had many friends join the military. In 2003 the Iraq war began and my friends were deployed, upon returning from war it was when reality set in, on the severity of the situation and how they have sacrificed everything for our freedom. Supporting the Folds of Honor and honoring their sacrifice is very rewarding to me and I am blessed to have the opportunity do so."

"Advocating for Folds of Honor and raising awareness of their mission holds a special place in my heart.  It’s not just a charitable endeavor, it’s a personal commitment to giving back to the families of heroes who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice.  I consider myself incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to educate our Desert Willow guests about the incredible achievements of the Folds of Honor Family. Scholarship recipients being one of the direct benefits from Folds of Honor is a testament to their mission.  They’ve made remarkable impacts in the lives of those who have lost a loved one in service to our country. I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to everyone who has joined us in this endeavor.  Let’s continue to raise awareness, raise funds, and stand by the heroes and their loved ones who have given so much for our freedom."
