Military Appreciation Day at THE PLAYERS

May 9th, 2013 · Leave a Comment

THE PLAYERS is more than a golf tournament and a showcase of elite golf and a world-class facility. THE PLAYERS week is filled with activities that highlight the “good side of sports,” most notably, a commitment to honoring the men and women who serve in the U.S. Military.
