(WTVM) - While area golfers will soon enjoy a long Labor Day weekend on Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, they will be helping flood victims in Louisiana.
From Saturday, Sept. 3 through Monday, Sept. 5, the RTJ Golf Trail will donate $10 to the American Red Cross South Louisiana Flood Relief from every round of golf with a green and cart fees paid.
"Louisiana golfers have played the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail since it opened nearly 25 years ago and now Louisiana needs our help," said John Cannon, president of the RTJ Golf Trail. "We hope this Labor Day Weekend charitable promotion will provide financial relief to Louisiana residents in need."
All 11 RTJ sites across Alabama will participate in the Labor Day Weekend donations.
Tee times should be made with the local sites and a complete list can be found at www.rtjgolf.com.
The money collected will go to American Red Cross: South Louisiana Flood Relief to benefit flood victims in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas.
