Golf Course Apologizes for Offering $9.11 Deal on 9/11
Sadly, not a lot of things that happen in life surprise me anymore. But whenever I hear of someone trying to exploit September 11th, a day that almost 3,000 people lost their lives, not to mention the thousands as a result since, I'm at a complete loss for words.
On Monday, Tumbledown Trails golf course in Verona, Wisconsin published ads for a September 11th special- 9 holes of golf for $9.11 or 18 holes with a golf cart for only $19.11.
Not surprisingly, the ad was posted all over social media and Tumbledown Trails got the exactly backlash you'd expect them to get for exploiting 9/11.
Tumbledown Trails says their goal was to remind people of the significance of the day. If you believe that, I've got some swamp land for sale.
Tumbledown Trails offered up an apology, canceled the special and the ads, and said they'd donate any profits today to a 9/11 memorial fund.
