Royal Wimbledon Golf Club 150th Anniversary celebrations with On Course Foundation 5th Anniversary 

RWGC 150th' OCF and RWGC Anniversary

 

2015 is a significant year in the golf calendar as it marks both On Course Foundation’s 5th Anniversary and the 150th Anniversary of Royal Wimbledon Golf Club.

In honour of this, we are proud to offer a select number of companies and individuals the opportunity to join us in celebrating these occasions by attending a very special golf day on September 16th 2015.

We are fortunate enough to be hosting this event at Royal Wimbledon Golf Club, the ideal location to mark these milestones As a venue, Royal Wimbledon not only represents one of the finest golf courses in the country, but it is also the place where On Course Foundation first started its journey. John Simpson, the Founder of the charity and long serving Member of the Club, first piloted our initiative on the famous practice green back in 2009. As such, we expect the day to be the perfect opportunity to commemorate all that has been accomplished in the last five years, and all that we aim to do in the coming years.

If you would like more information, please contact us on 020 8334 2010, or email info@oncoursefoundation.com.

"Through the OCF I have developed my confidence as well as my golf skills. I have joined a local golf club and now play with other people. PTSD is a hidden wound, it is not a clearly visible injury, and golf is an ideal sport where you can find temporary peace from issues in your mind."

"To me, OCF is so much more than just a great way to learn and improve my golf. The Foundation is fantastic in bringing together guys that might not have had the opportunity to play such a sport before, and show them not only how inclusive it is, but how it helps build confidence. It’s through this confidence that I have been able to secure employment with their help. Now the sport that I love is helping me every day in rehabilitation, something I had never even considered before."
