Wisconsin golf course offers $9.11 special on 9-11, apologizes following backlash

A Wisconsin golf course is apologizing following a backlash over its advertising of nine holes of golf for $9.11 on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Tumbledown Trails Golf Course near Madison advertised the special with an ad Monday in the Wisconsin State Journal saying it was meant to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.

News of the special spread on social media and the golf course's Facebook page was overrun with negative comments.

On Monday, the golf course apologized on Facebook saying no disrespect was intended. It followed that with another message saying it may close Sept. 11 out of concerns for the safety of its staff.

A message left at the golf course was not immediately returned Tuesday.
