This Week in the Pines

On Monday, August 11th, Billy Casper’s World’s Largest Golf Outing benefiting Wounded Warrior Project was held across 120+ courses in 26 states. WLGO is more than just a great day of golf; it’s about making a difference in the lives of our injured service men and women through participation and team fundraising. Pictured are the participants who played the Ocean Pines course that day.  Team Rider raised the most for a team and the course has raised almost $4,000 total.  Lots of fun and for a great cause!!
