Operation Game On is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides golf as a form of rehabilitation for our returning combat-injured troops suffering from physical and mental disabilities. Operation Game On’s goal is to reach out to our troops and their families to show them the honor they deserve through an introduction to the game of golf. Golf is a fun, wholesome and challenging outdoor activity that gives our nation’s heroes a chance to compete and be active. Golf helps build self-confidence and teaches determination and create newfound friendships.
Golf can assist the injured service member in therapeutic rehabilitation. It allows them to take their mind of their everyday struggles, including surgeries, injuries and doctors. Golf also gives the injured service member to compete, laugh, relax, focus, and challenge their muscles outside of regular physical training. It also gives them hope of a clearer future after their tragic injuries and experiences of war.
Operation Game On gives returning combat-injured troops suffering from physical and mental disabilities a very special custom intro-to-golf package. They are provided with golf lessons by certified PGA golf instructors, professional fitting sessions with a PGA qualified staff member at TaylorMade’s “The Kingdom“, golf equipment including a brand new full set of Taylor Made clubs and golf bag, golf apparel including Adidas golf shoes and headwear and access to San Diego county courses at special discounted rates.
Most importantly, Operation Game On provides these heroes with confidence and the chance to transition from the trauma of the dangerous missions they experienced to the accomplishment and thrills of GIRs [greens in regulation] and sinking a birdie putt. With golf, body and mind catch that ray of hope when it is needed most.
