"Members of the military are very important to us at Sandestin," says Rick Hileman, PGA Director of Golf Operations at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. "With several military bases in our own backyard and surrounding cities, we wanted to show our appreciation and give thanks for all that our military personnel do each and every day."
