Award-Winning Pocono Mountains Golf Course Gives Back to Those Who Protect Our Freedom

The Country Club at Woodloch Springs Launches New Program for Veterans

HAWLEY, PA--(Marketwired - July 18, 2016) - The Country Club at Woodloch Springs, a championship golf course located in the Northern Pocono Mountains, has been growing leaps and bounds in its efforts to assist local veterans within the last few years, and they are about to take it one step further.

Launching this month, Woodloch Springs will begin Fairways for Freedom, a new program offering veterans a free 20-minute "tune-up" lesson. A tune-up will consist of a one-on-one lesson with one of the three golf professionals at the Poconos golf course, focusing on a topic of the golfer's choosing. Whether it's working on chips, puts, or swings, golfers will walk away with increased confidence in their game. Golfers are welcome to extend the lesson time to a full hour for a small fee. To schedule a tune-up, golfers simply need to call the Woodloch Springs Pro Shop and arrange a time with the professional of one's choosing. Additionally, veterans can take advantage of $35 tee times after 12 P.M. on Wednesdays. This program began on July 14th and will last the duration of the regular golf season.

"This is just our way of giving back to the ones who risk their lives for our freedom," says Josh Deal, Head Golf Professional.

These programs were inspired by the success of this year's third annual Folds of Honor Golf Classic held at Woodloch Springs on June 20th. The tournament honors local veterans who have lost their lives in battle and raises money to educate the legacy of those fallen heroes. Over the past three years, Woodloch has raised over $30,000 for the cause.

"We never want to forget the veterans in our local community who gave it all for us, and we are committed to honoring their legacy," said John Pillar, Director of Golf at Woodloch Springs.
