Registration Now Open for "Worlds Largest Golf Outing" to Benefit Wounded Warrior Project

The World's Largest Golf Outing (WLGO) is a golf fundraiser played at more than 110 Billy Casper Golf-managed courses in 28 states, including Antelope Hills Golf Course in Prescott.

Since its inception in 2011, the WLGO has hosted 36,000-plus golfers and contributed more than $2.2 million to Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

This year the golf outing will be held on August 3, 2015.

Part of event proceeds and all donations from non-players benefit WWP, the national, nonpartisan organization that honors and empowers injured service men and women and their families, many of whom play in the event.

Participating courses honor the military with moments of silence, ceremonial tee shots, standing ovations, national anthems and color guards before play, patriot decorations adorning fairways and greens and on-site military vehicles and fly-overs.

In 2014, over 12,100 golfers – including 364 injured service members – participated in the single-day outing, raising more than $887,000, a record high, for WWP. Bill Clinton, the nation's 42nd President and 2014 recipient of the PGA of America's Distinguished Service Award, supported the WLGO in his suburban New York City community.

The brainchild of BCG Chairman and CEO Peter Hill, the WLGO is driven by the company's 6,000 employees, business partners and loyal golfers. BCG namesake, Masters and two-time U.S. Open winner Billy Casper served in the Navy, witnessing first-hand the effects of front-line combat. He often entertained U.S. troops serving in Asia by hitting golf balls over aircraft carriers.

"Our nation's generosity and the growth of the World's Largest Golf Outing continues to amaze," says Hill. "It's humbling to witness the unwavering appreciation for our brave men and women who sacrifice everything to protect and preserve our daily freedoms."

Highlights from the emotional and inspiring event include: live coverage on Golf Channel's "Morning Drive" from BCG-managed courses in Florida; participation from national and local politicians, professional athletes and media; and veterans and active service members sharing their military experiences.

"The World's Largest Golf Outing 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 our charitable partner Wounded Warrior Project." – PETER HILL, CEO BCG
