Events like Links & Drinks go a long way to helping us make a difference in the lives of combat wounded veterans.

The Texas Whiskey Festival announced today that the upcoming Links & Drinks Golf Tournament – scheduled to take place Friday, October 5th at the Tour Eighteen Golf Course in Houston, will benefit the non-profit organization Impact a Hero, which provides support, opportunities and resources to wounded, post 9/11 combat veterans, their families and caregivers.

The Links & Drinks Golf Tournament is specifically designed for weekend “athletes” and whiskey enthusiasts who like having fun and giving back at the same time. Sponsored by several of the best distilleries in Texas (who also support the Texas Whiskey Festival), this four-man “shamble” format gives teams a competitive opportunity to slash their scores by sampling the Texas distilleries strategically aligned along the course.

Distilleries participating in the event so far include:

  • Garrison Brother Distilling
  • Balcones Distilling
  • Yellow Rose Distilling (In Houston)
  • Cotton Hollow Distilling
  • Devils River Whiskey
  • Andalusia Whiskey Co.
  • Black Feather Whiskey

The Tour Eighteen Golf Course is a “greatest-hits” collaboration that recreates the most famous holes in American golf.    

“Imagine yourself playing some of the best golf courses in America while sampling the finest Texas Whiskeys, all to benefit our veterans,” said Texas Whiskey Festival Co-founder Jake Clements.

“Events like Links & Drinks go a long way to helping us make a difference in the lives of combat wounded veterans,” added Impact a Hero’s Executive Director Mike Nasche. “After navigating the outdoor replica course, participants can enjoy great food and music, and spend time with some of our nation’s veterans. We’re looking forward to a fun day on October 5th.”
