Billy Casper Golf-Managed Courses To Host Second Annual "World's Largest Golf Outing" Monday, August 13
(VIENNA, VA) - Billy Casper Golf (BCG) - owner and operator of more than 130 golf courses, country clubs and resorts - will host the second annual "World's Largest Golf Outing" to benefit Wounded Warrior ProjectTM (WWP) on Monday, August 13.
The simultaneous golf outing at more than 100 BCG-managed courses in 24 states is open to golfers of all abilities and does not require a USGA handicap.

Golfer check-in is at 11:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. (local time) at most courses. Entry fees vary by course and include a round of golf, cart rental, range balls, lunch, awards reception, on-course contests and prizes.
Golfers are encouraged to Tweet @BillyCasperGolf using #WLGO with photos and updates during or after the day.
Part of the event proceeds benefit WWP, the national, nonpartisan organization that honors and empowers Wounded Warriors, some of whom will play in the World's Largest Golf Outing. Teams are encouraged to raise additional funds to support this worthy cause.
Last year, BCG courses hosted more than 2,200 golfers at 80 properties nationwide and raised $43,700 for WWP.
"We are committed to beat the contribution BCG and its loyal, altruistic golfers made to Wounded Warrior Project last year," says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. "Golfers and Wounded Warriors who played in the 2011 event gave it rave reviews and we expect the same this time around."
"We salute Billy Casper Golf for establishing this ground-breaking outing that provides a healthy physical activity for Wounded Warriors and raises funds for WWP programs," says Adam Silva, Chief Development Officer of Wounded Warrior Project. "Participating in sports helps injured service members restore their physical and emotional well-being."
