Patrons

We’re led by a dedicated, knowledgeable Board of Trustees who meet four times a year. They steer our MD and team who, in turn, lead On Course Foundation employees to carry out the day-to-day activities of the organisation.

“I am delighted to be the Patron of the On Course Foundation. Golf is a sport that I very much enjoy and I am delighted that we have found a way for the golfing industry as a whole to support our Armed Forces in a very positive way. I am also delighted that the R&A, of which I am a past Captain, supports this initiative.

As a serving member of the Royal Navy for 22 years I know of the extraordinary work that our armed forces do to protect the security of our nation and of the sacrifices that they are called upon to face and make in the course of their service.
I would like to thank all the companies and individuals who have so generously supported the On Course Foundation to date. I look forward to working closely with them in the coming months and years.”

“When I met a small number of the injured servicemen in Orlando through On Course, I was profoundly moved and hugely impressed by their courage and determination in facing what seems to me enormous adversity.
Golf has been such a huge part of my life and to see that our beloved game can be used as an integral tool in the rehabilitation of soldiers from around the world fills me with great pride.

I am deeply honoured to be Patron of an organisation that crosses all political and religious barriers in supporting those who have given so much to their respective countries at such high personal and emotional cost. It is a genuine privilege to be able to support and highlight the growing number of courageous individuals who are too often forgotten.”

"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."

"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."
