Land of the free: Great patriotic golf course names in the United States

Golf over Independence Day weekend is an American tradition for many families. In honor of our national birthday, we've uncovered a collection of the most patriotic golf course names from coast to coast. You can view them in the slideshow below.

Some courses are named after U.S Presidents, particularly golf fanatics like Dwight D. Eisenhower. Others take it a step further. In Las Vegas, Revere Golf Club pays tribute to Paul Revere's midnight ride with the Lexington Course and Concord Course. No golf course may have a more patriotic setting than exclusive Liberty National, which sits in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty.

Course names like "Bunker Hill" and "Independence" are particularly popular. We also found 11 golf courses with the word "Patriot" in the name, and 22 courses with "American" in the title. One of the most ambitiously patriotic golf courses is set to debut in the spring of 2021. Jack Nicklaus is building a brand new course on top of the old Grand Haven Golf Club for Folds of Honor CEO Dan Rooney. Learn more about the project here.
