Simpson Cup

Named after the founder of the On Course Foundation, the Simpson Cup is an annual Ryder Cup styled tournament between 12 injured Service personnel and veterans from the UK and USA. The competitors involved are all members of the On Course Foundation in the UK and our sister Foundation in the US with all funds remaining after running costs split between the two Foundations.

Team GB Qualifier will take place at the London Club, Kent on 13th and 14th August and currently there are 15 players confirmed. With the competition well attended and the pinnacle of our Members’ golf calendar,this number looks set to increase to 24.Simpson cup logo (3)

Team GB picks are confirmed as: Jason Evans (Captain), Paul Swain (Vice Captian), Dave Ward, Mike Browne, Gregg Stevenson, Jack Smith, Anthony Lownds, Ian Bishop.

The first US qualifier that took place at TPC Potomac was a huge success, with the first three US qualifiers confirmed as Jonathan James, Mike McCoombs, Tim Lang.

Team US picks are confirmed as: TJ Brooks (Captain), Steve Ogletree (Vice Captain), Andrew Bachelder, Chris McCoy, Chris Bowers, Shawn Whitmore, Eric Napier.

Following the incredible success of last year’s tournament at Congressional Country Club, this year looks set to be another headline event for the charity. The Coldstream Guards band have been confirmed for the opening ceremony, with Spitfire for the grand closing ceremony.

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.

"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."
