"I LOVE THE GAME OF GOLF,
BUT I LOVE MY COUNTRY EVEN MORE."

— JACK NICKLAUS, AMERICAN DUNES

On the eastern shores of Lake Michigan is the historic Grand Haven Golf Club which was transformed

into a national treasure. Sculpted through the deep sands. Inspired by a passion for America. Built to

honor American warriors and fund the legacies of their families. It’s a place of gathering for patriots

who share Mr. Nicklaus’ love of the game. And our country.

 

There is no place like this in America. This is for America.

Jack Nicklaus

Often great stories have a crooked road. American Dunes is living proof. Fate brought Jack and Barbara Nicklaus to Grand Haven, Michigan, and with Lt. Colonel Rooney, the three of them cast their vision standing in the sands of what Mr. Nicklaus saw clearly in his heart and mind — American Dunes. 

 

We are humbled and blessed to have Mr. Nicklaus lead this team. His vision for American Dunes transcends golf, serving not only the mission of the Folds of Honor but a safe haven for veterans and their families to find rehabilitation through the greatest game ever played. Jack’s game.

Lt. Col. Dan Rooney. PGA Professional. F-16 pilot with three tours of duty in Iraq. Husband to one, father to five girls. A friend worth having.

 

And the founder of The Folds of Honor Foundation.

 

The beginnings were humble, created by a thunderous life-changing event on a flight to Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The “mission video” recounts that night in storyteller’s detail, we invite you to watch it.


American Dunes stands as a living memorial to the birthplace of this remarkable organization. With a powerful keyword: living. Memorials, by themselves, do not fund scholarships. People do, which is the laser-focused mission of American Dunes — to fund The Folds of Honor Foundation.

Together, we will change lives.

Proudly 100% of American Dunes’ annual profit

will be given to The Folds of Honor Foundation to

assist in their noble mission — providing educational

scholarships to spouses and children of America’s

fallen and disabled service members.To date,

Folds of Honor has awarded over $125,000,000 in

scholarships to our military families. Our commitment

is to Honor Their Sacrifice and Educate Their Legacy.

 

We encourage everyone who visits

American Dunes to become a wingman.

The Camp

The Camp is home to 16 patriotic staterooms, carefully curated to honor each branch of the United States Armed Forces. And deep beneath The Camp, The Bunker. A refuge of cold beer, cue sticks and late-into-the-night stories of life and liberty.
