The Worst 9/11 Remembrance Golf Offer

Golf Offer

No doubt, all of us have our own memories of what occurred on September 11, 2001. Maybe you mark the event in your own special way.

A golf course operator in Wisconsin decided to mark the anniversary of 9-11 with a special event:special 9-11 pricing on golf.


Once the advertisement appeared in a local newspaper, it quickly exploded onto the internet. The backlash was almost instant, with the owner quickly withdrawing the offer, and apologizing on Facebook:

We would first like to apologize to everyone that we have upset or feels we have disrespected in anyway. By no means did we mean to do this.
Here is what we will do this Wednesday 9-11;
we will still let all that have tee times booked play for the previous rates we posted.
Then for all other golf that day we would like to donate the $ difference between our normal rate and the previous price for the day to the 9/11 Memorial.
We hope that everyone will now see this as a positive as we really meant it to be. Again we do sincerely apologize for offending anyone & hope that you do accept our sincere apology.
Thank you


The apology was posted Monday. Yesterday, a posting on Facebook indicated the course may not even be open today.

Please stay tuned to see if we will be open on Weds 9/11.
We are now worried about what people will do/say to our staff & do not want anything to happen or get out of control.
Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone.
