Healing Heroes Golf Week to play Lady’s Island Country Club

In its mission to support the most severely injured veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, the Independence Fund will host the inaugural Healing Heroes Golf Week in the South Carolina Lowcountry from April 23-27.
Entry cost is $75 per golfer per round and includes cart, greens fee, prizes, and snacks. On-course registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. at each site followed by a shotgun start for a captain’s-choice scramble at noon. Entries are limited to 100 golfers each day.
“This is a great way for people from the local community to not only support these heroes, but to actually get out and spend some meaningful time with them,” said volunteer Golf Director Robert de Treville of Beaufort.  “What better place to do this than on a South Carolina Golf Course?”
“Lady’s Island Country Club is excited to be a part of this important event to support those who have supported our freedoms; we’re expecting a great group of local golfers to play along with the 20 severely wounded veterans who we expect to play,” added Lady’s Island owner Jeff Fischer.
Considering Beaufort County’s large retired military population, participants should register early to ensure their slot in this patriotic event. Registration packets are available at most area pro shops. To register online, go to http://www.healingheroesgolfweek.com.
Proceeds will be used to purchase one or more $17,000 ParaMobile, a stand up and play mobility device, for wounded veterans. The Independence Fund is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization run by combat veterans. To learn more, visit www.independencefund.org or www.ldw3.com.
