People are being waaaaaaay too sensitive on this one. It was 12 years ago, move on. What we Americans whine about as being the worst day in our history is a day to day fact of life for people in some parts of the world.

Its not if you get over it or not, its being tactful. If they wanted to do things right, then offer free rounds for Local fire fighters in honor of the heroes who wet up that tower to bring people out. Or host a golf outing to raise money for the victims.
You don't commemorate a number specifically chosen by the Terrorist because they know its our number for emergencies. There's a reason why they chose 9/11 as the day to attack America. I get the golf course might have tried to make things better, their intent might have been in the right direction, but it was poorly done.
I don't know where to go with this. Just acknowledging the date, like pearl harbor etc would seem to me, say to those involved: "Look at the stain we left on America."
On another note:
I don't see anyone throwing fits about hospitals... They kill women, children and men daily.
People need to get over themselves for sure. I a former soldier and am on a base in Afghanistan that took 10 mortars on 9/11 (and 2 just an hour ago). I would be asking where this course was and go tee it up there and round up as many of my police, military, and firefighter friends as possible.
