Welcome to the Fore Golfers Network Podcast Ep 289 as we share the story of American Dunes - one of the nation's most unique golf properties both for its history and patriotic cause.
Our guest is ADGC General Manager, Doug Bell who paints the picture of the last 12 months of growth, growing pains, and overwhelming gratitude from those who have come to play and soak in the experience on and off the course.
In 2006, the Grand Haven Golf Club hosted a small golf tournament that would inspire the formation of Folds of Honor. The Grand Haven Golf Club closed in 2018 and a small group of patriots joined together with Jack Nicklaus to create American Dunes. The mission of American Dunes is unwavering. We are honored to raise awareness and funds for the families of our fallen and disabled veterans. Jack Nicklaus led the project by donating his $3,000,000 design fee, a group of eighteen individuals sponsored a hole and five private investors joined together to preserve the birthplace of Folds of Honor.
Lt Col Dan Rooney, a fighter pilot in the USAFR and PGA Professional founded Folds of Honor in 2007. “American Dunes represents a collaboration of countless likeminded patriots, who want this golf course to forever stand as a tribute to the birthplace of Folds of Honor, a safe haven for veterans who find rehabilitation through the recreation of the game, and a backdrop to celebrate our country and those who fought for its freedom” said Rooney. A significant legacy such as this is born out of the effort of selfless individuals and companies who have donated their time and resources.
And now, because of you and many other like minded patriots that know that Freedom Is Not Free, your support of American Dunes Golf Club directly benefits the Folds of Honor mission.
