Brad's Golf-A-Thon Results

A week ago on September 11, 2019 ,Brad Gardner, PGA Head Professional raced through The Edison Club course as he played a solo golf-a-thon to raise funds for Folds of Honor. We are happy to report that Brad exceeded his original goal of playing at least 200 holes ( he made it through 204 before a knee injury forced him to stop) and ended up raising $29,226. These funds will go towards educational scholarships for family members of our fallen and disabled service members.
