On Course Foundation, the charity for wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans, has announced a partnership with National Golf Month. With 85 percent of Foundation members never having played golf, the charity is well placed to promote the mental and physical health benefits of golf and drive increased participation. Launched in 2010, On Course Foundation has already helped hundreds of service personnel and veterans progress their rehabilitation using golf skills and employment training.
On Course Foundation will be encouraging all of its members to take part in the National Golf Month 30 foot Putt Challenge, making the most of their social media channels to share their inventive putts. The Foundation will also be promoting participation in National Golf Month introduction to golf sessions and supporting the promotion of golf throughout May.
Steve Holt (pictured), managing director of On Course Foundation commented, “Golf is one of very few sports where all abilities can play and compete together so it is a perfect sport for wounded, injured and sick service personnel. The camaraderie and confidence that can be found on the golf course is unique so we’ll be showing our full support for National Golf Month and its drive to introduce new players to a game that has given so much to our members.”
Doug Poole, director of National Golf Month said, “On Course Foundation is a fantastic charity that embodies all that is great about golf. The members show that golf is truly a game for anyone who wants to get involved and I’m proud to have them as a partner for our work.” More at: www.oncoursefoundation.com
