The Need

Golf is a proven, effective tool in the rehabilitation process. Unfortunately, due to the lack of golf course facilities dedicated to wounded veterans, the sport is a largely underleveraged resource to help with the significant challenges that these men and women face. The purpose of WOTG, in partnership with prominent golf course design companies and other partners, is to create multi-hole golf training facilities adjacent to military installation golf courses across the nation. These holes will be reserved for the instruction, practice, and on-course play of wounded and disabled veterans. They will be designed to adapt to the specialized needs of these veterans and will be conducive to learning and improving at each golfer’s own pace. It is our hope that, through this unique initiative, increased numbers of rehabilitating veterans will find themselves outdoors, gaining new skills and confidence, and helping to prepare themselves for reentry into everyday life.
