The Patriot Golf Day, held at the Patriot Golf Club in Stone Canyon near Owasso, was held on Memorial Day as it has been the past several years. Patriot Golf has been the centerpiece of patriots joining the Patriot cause and continually stands out as the number one source of revenue to help raise funds for families of fallen veterans.

The patriots who make the fundraising happen are prominent golfers, including PGA Professionals alongside committed patriots across America.

The Patriot aspires to provide a golf-centric sanctuary for local and national members who are passionate about the game, appreciate its history and traditions, and are drawn to the club’s unique setting and deep sense of Patriotism. 

Though the club’s core focus is providing members with an exceptional and purpose-driven golf experience, The Patriot combines the amenities of lodging and dining to further enhance its distinctive environment. 

The Patriot Golf Club is the product of a chance meeting between Major Dan Rooney, founder of The Folds of Honor Foundation, and David Charney, co-developer of the Stone Canyon Development. Both men were late substitutes in a charity golf tournament and happened to be paired together. During that fateful round of golf, Rooney discussed his desire to build a home course for his charitable foundation, The Folds of Honor, and Charney told him of a piece of land in Stone Canyon where he envisioned a golf course. It was during those few hours the idea of The Patriot was born.  

The famous Robert Trent Jones, Jr. was commissioned to design the course. Over the next two years, The Patriot was developed. The diversity of the terrain was uncovered and shown to flow through four distinct and breathtaking topographies: lowland marsh, woodland meadows, high prairie, and dramatic limestone canyons. The rock-laden terrain required importing 10-inches of sandy-loam top soil. Irrigation was literally carved into the land through limestone.

The Patriot opened to its members in May 2010. Since that time, the club has received many accolades. The Patriot was named the Best New Private Club in 2011 by Golfweek and in 2012 was ranked 45th on the Golfweek Modern List.
