In the last 15 years, Patriot Golf Days has provided over 10,000 scholarships worth about $50 million to spouses and children of fallen or disabled service members.

Golfers and others can donate to the organization or play a round at one of the courses supporting Patriot Golf Days. In Michigan, you can play at Treetops, TopGolf Auburn Hills or Tiber Trace.

You can also play a round at American Dunes Golf Club in Grand Haven, which Rooney founded and opened this month. 100% of the profits go to Folds of Honor.
