Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort to Honor U.S. Service Members Labor Day Weekend

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort - the 2,400-acre resort in Destin on Northwest Florida's Emerald Coast - will salute service members this Labor Day, offering a special military rate for its "Picture Perfect Labor Day Getaway" and complimentary greens fees August 31 to September 3.

The "Picture Perfect Labor Day Getaway" features one free night with the purchase of two, amenities and admission to the Baytowne Art Walk. Active and retired military can also play Raven Golf Club, Baytowne Golf Club and The Links Course for a $20 cart fee.

"Members of the military are very important to us at Sandestin," said Rick Hileman, Director of Golf Operations at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. "With several military bases in our own backyard and surrounding cities, we wanted to show our appreciation and give thanks for all that our military personnel do each and every day."

Sandestin is also asking golfers add $1 to their greens fee Labor Day weekend as part of Patriot Golf Day. The donations benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides postsecondary educational scholarships for the children and spouses of military men and women disabled or killed while serving the U.S.

It all coincides with the Baytowne Art Walk (August 31 to September 2), which features world-class art and live music in Sandestin's Village at Baytowne Wharf. The festival showcases the Southeast's leading artists, many of whom are regularly featured in the region's top art galleries.
