Aspen Lakes Golf Course is offering three free days of golf to any current or former member of the U.S. uniformed services in celebration of Veterans Day. From Friday, Nov. 11, through Sunday, Nov. 13, service men and women of the U.S. military, including active duty, reserve, and retired members, can play one free round of golf at the Sisters course.

Aspen Lakes has been offering the popular Veterans Day celebration to active and retired service members for more than a decade. The event can draw more than 100 veterans or active service members in a single day.

“The Veterans Day event is a fun way for all of us at Aspen Lakes to show our gratitude for the wonderful men and women of the U.S. military,” said Matt Cyrus, co-owner of the family-owned golf facility in Sisters. “It has become a popular way for veterans to celebrate their day. We get calls as early as August from veterans wondering if we will be offering free Veterans Day golf again.”

To play, each golfer is asked to call ahead for a tee time, and to wear his or her uniform hat to the golf course. Aspen Lakes will waive the green fee (cart rental and range balls are not included), which is typically $48 during peak times.

In addition to golf on Veterans Day, Aspen Lakes Golf Course has teed off its annual canned food drive. Aspen Lakes is asking golfers to donate at least three cans of nonperishable, unexpired food in exchange for a discounted 18-hole green fee of $30 and nine-hole fee of $20 (cart rental is not included). The 18-hole rate represents an $18-per-round discount from Aspen Lakes’ regular rate. The food Aspen Lakes collects is then donated in support of various Central Oregon charities and food banks in time for the holiday season.
