On Course Foundation provides long-term benefits for injured, wounded and sick service members and veterans through golf tuition, work experience and jobs in the golf industry. On Course began in the United Kingdom in 2009, and launched in the United States in 2013. By using the game of golf, this charity provides injured service members and veterans with the opportunity to play in the only game with a level playing field due to the golf handicap system.
