“As part of our strategic alliance with the TPC Network, we are very proud to have the opportunity to support the members of our U.S. Armed Forces and their families through Birdies for the Brave. Together, we can help make a difference in the lives of those who perform selfless acts of bravery on a daily basis as well as the courageous family members who do so much at home that enables their loved ones to proudly serve our country,” said Heritage Golf Group Partner and CEO Davis Sezna.
“We truly appreciate the dedication and passion of Heritage Golf Group, its employees, and club members, who have helped Birdies for the Brave raise millions of dollars for military homefront charities as well as express our sincere gratitude to military members, veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice,” said PGA TOUR Director of PR & Community Outreach, Anne Davis.
