Veterans are now eligiable to get free admission to this year's Humana Challenge Golf Tournament.
In previous years, active duty, military reserves and retirees could get in for free, but this year that offer has been extended to veterans as well, organizers tell Patch.
Humana Military Outpost – a hospitality pavilion at a La Quinta golf course -- will play host to military and their families in an appreciation day during one of the Valley's biggest golf tournaments.
The Jan. 19, 2013 Humana Military Appreciation Day will be held during the Humana Challenge Golf Tournament.
There will be a color guard, a military jet flyover and complimentary food and beverages, as well as patio seating overlooking the tournament golf action.
There will also be on-course family fit areas and interactive activities, according to organizers. Humana Pavilion is at PGA West, 55-955 PGA Blvd., in La Quinta.
Veterans will get free admission to the Humana Challenge -- set to run from Jan. 17-20-- only if they pre-register. To do that, they must contact Amanda Croteau at(760) 346-8184 or ACroteau@HumanaChallenge.com.
Daily grounds passes normally run $39, according to Croteau.
