We plan to build at least 10 multi-hole practice facilities on U.S. military bases in the next 5 years. The first facility is planned for Fort Belvoir, VA, which has a large population of wounded veterans rehabilitating in a Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) there. WTUs support wounded, ill, and injured soldiers requiring at least 6 months of rehabilitative care and complex medical management, as well as mobilized reserve component soldiers requiring definitive care. The injuries of these veterans range from upper/lower extremity injuries to traumatic brain injuries.
Fort Belvoir’s therapeutic golf program has already achieved significant success, but its facilities are inadequate to accommodate larger numbers of wounded warriors. Adding a Veterans Clubhouse for year-round training and rehab, plus a six-hole par 3 course will allow the Fort Belvoir program to increase its therapeutic golf offerings and become the national model for the WOTG concept.
Additional facilities are envisioned on or near other military installations and Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities with large numbers of combat-wounded veterans. Discussions and plans are underway at Fort Gordon, GA and at a location in Central Florida.
