Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAS VEGAS - May 18, 2017 - All retired and active military personnel will receive a free Hero Card when they play a round of golf $49 at Royal Links Golf Club on Monday, May 29.
The Hero Card gives veterans, military personnel and first responders a year membership at the club that includes substantial reductions on golf rates, dining and the pro shop at the facility.
“We want to offer the bravest members of our community an opportunity to become part of our Hero Club for free and enjoy our highest benefits,” said Jody Niemann, general manager at Royal Links. “Military personnel and first responders are the true heroes of our society who keep us safe while risking their own lives. They deserve to be singled out as heroes.”
The Hero Card sells for $99 and is honored for a year after purchase a limited time. Those who are veterans and active military personnel, members of area police and fire departments as well as paramedics, hospital employees and educators are eligible.
The card includes a $49 yearlong rate for rounds on the course, 20 percent off in the pro shop and 15 percent off at Stymie’s Pub. Cardholders also receive 10 percent off for guests booked online and a free round on their birthday.
“Our military heroes deserve the opportunity to experience golf at Royal Links at our lowest rate,” Niemann said. Niemann is a former LPGA pro and the first woman to operate a Las Vegas golf course facility. “I’ve always looked up to individuals who dedicate their profession to others. They are ideal role models.”
