about

Through a yearly set of retreats, our SOF wounded warriors are introduced to the therapeutic sport of golf, and its highly adaptive attributes as the core activity. Each event will provide professionals to teach and mentor over the course of several days, as well as encourage benefactors to sponsor, play and create personal/working relationships with recovering SOF warriors to assist in their transition to the civilian sector. 

 

Throughout the year, we invite our warriors to play at prestigious and beautiful golf courses both domestically and in Ireland. Additionally, during each retreat, professional physical and mental health treatment will be provided, as well as counseling sessions designed to reinforce and aid in the SOF warriors’ rehabilitation. 

 

As a Foundation composed of former SOF warriors with extensive experience in the rehabilitation of wounded, ill and injured, it is our main prerogative to ensure wide-ranged support of our warriors for as long as we are needed. What sets us apart is that our relationships with fellow benefactors provide each warrior with resources to combat all challenges they may face during their rehabilitation.
