Our Vision

Golf occupies a unique position as one of the few sports where participants of all skills and physical abilities can play together on a level playing field owing to the official handicap system. It offers injured Servicemen not only a sporting challenge but for those leaving the Service, an array of attractive career opportunities also.

The benefits of playing golf offer a key part in physical rehabilitation, improving both balance and limb coordination. Camaraderie, competitive spirit and concentration are important too, supporting the psychological recovery of our members and helping them find confidence within themselves. Many Service personnel face the daunting challenge of finding employment after leaving the Services, something we hope to help them overcome. We hope to use the game of golf as a vehicle for successful recovery, with all of our members achieving a positive outcome not only on the golf course, but ultimately through work experience and eventually meaningful employment in the golf industry.

Our beneficiaries can attest to what we do, and now we want to spread the word.

By December 2020 we have set ourselves ambitious targets to not only be the dominant golf charity in the UK but also to be recognised among the top three UK military charities.

"The On Course Foundation to me is something that I am immensely proud to be a part of…on top of all the great things they do, they also help us with employment in the golf industry; I myself have recently secured a work placement with American Golf and also a promising meeting with Titleist. I personally can’t thank them enough in the way they have helped me with my recovery."

"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."

"Golf...has given me focus and drive that I relish and thrive on. It has expedited my recovery both mentally and physically. The feeling of standing on the first tee is second to none. I am so grateful for all that On Course Foundation has done for Service personnel, serving or ex."
