A great organization that gives wounded service members the chance to either start a new sport or continue a sport they love. This support has been vital to recovery for myself and so many others. After losing my leg in Iraq to a rocket propelled grenade, I needed a goal and direction. Tee It Up for the Troops helped me to set a goal with a sport that I can continue for a lifetime.

I met JB over ten years ago, and loved what they brought to the table with connecting combat wounded veterans in a large event where story telling makes the weekend. Additionally they connect the care givers as well, to assist with challenges they face.

A great team, a small team of two, who was fully dedicated and determined to see our events to success Their hearts and minds were fully engaged and engaging. They are flexible and always available with one goal in mind. The objective of increasing awareness and raising funds to assist the families of men and women in uniform was above all others.

This team has a great manual to help you be more proactive. They will walk the plan and the activities along your side all they wat until the end of your event and to pre-start the next event.

I have participated in several golf events through tee it up for the troops and found them to be run very professionally. I also have had the opportunity to see what the funds raised can accomplish and it's amazing.

Tee It Up for the Troops Inc is an amazing nonprofit organization. I had the honor of being invited to their Reunion event in Orlando to deliver two workshops to Caregiver spouses last year. To see this organization plan such an amazing week for these warriors and their spouses-the details and thought behind each piece-was truly inspirational! Their care for each person and their well being truly shines through each day!

I am a 100% disabled, combat wounded Vietnam vet. I am the primary caregiver to my disabled wife and I suffer from several complications from exposure to agent orange and also PTSD.
Tee It Up for the troops introduced me to golf. They have presented me with the opportunity to mingle with fellow veterans, many of whom have common experiences. I enjoy a respite from my depression and get exercise in beautiful surroundings. I am very bad at golf. I have zero talent. However, the instructors from Tee It Up for the Troops remain encouraging. I never seem to get any better at golf but I do enjoy life more now!
I very much appreciate this organization.

TIUFTT is a wonderful military non-profit serving Veterans, focusing on those with wounds or injuries through their service. They run their own first-class golf tournaments, as well as helping other clubs and organizations to raise funds towards this cause. They also host an annual reunion for "combat-altered" veterans in Florida that includes counseling sessions, support for spouses & caregivers, reunification with former "battle -buddies", regular & adaptive golf with instruction, and networking opportunities.

I have had the good fortune to serve on the Minnesota Chapter of Tee It Up For The Troops Board of Directors for the past 5 years. I've had a front row seat to see how well they execute their mission. The engagement by the volunteers clearly shows the good that TIUFTT's does. The outcome from each event is remarkable and grows each year. That doesn't happen if TIUFTT isn't effective supporting veterans not matter their era of service. One of the outstanding components of the funds raised is the minimum amount that is dedicated to administration and operations. TIUFTT provides the largest % of funds raised to support the veterans and their needs.

I have been a member of Tee it up since 2007 as a disabled veteran. Thanks to this wonderful charity, they gave me my first ever set of customized Ping golf clubs and lessons which refueled my fire for the game of golf. I have golfed several events with them them every year since then and have personally witnessed the good that this organization has done for Veterans, spouses, and their families. Not only veterans and families, but, veteran based charities as well, such as the Fisher house. I will continue to give my support to Tee it up for as long as I am able to golf and share my story and experiences.

I’ve been involved with Tee It Up the Troops for over eight years. I have seen first hand how their events have honored many veterans from the WWII era through today’s younger veterans. I have seen first hand the heart-felt recognition of Gold Star family members.

I have been able to meet with many of their partners that they fund and that provide a wide variety of service/support to veterans, their families as well as current military. Groups that work to eliminate homelessness among veterans. Groups that provide residential “bed and breakfast” facilities for families visiting service members being cared for at VA or military hospitals. I’ve met groups that manage and staff airport lounge facilities for traveling service members, their families and retired veterans. On a 24x7 basis. As well those that provide different styles of therapy for service members/veterans suffering from PTS or TBI. One offer therapy horse back riding another offering an art based therapy approach.

Smaller local groups that collect and distribute gifts to military children during the holiday season at year-end. Or host local lunches or dinners for veterans. Some that offer career and interviewing coaching as well as employer networking.

There is more, suffice it to say that very few veteran focused non-profits have a broader reach or impact. And given the high level of volunteer involvement they do it in a incredible level of financial efficiency.

My friends and I have experienced incredible healing from involvement with Golf and
Reunion events that get Vets together. We become brothers because of our service
and the sacrifices we have made. We encourage one another and make fun of one
another to keep things light and with humility. This is a fantastic organization
doing wonderful things for our Veterans and Military

I have volunteered with this great organization for over 10 years, assisting with their golf events and specifically the opening ceremonies. The people are awesome, and they do so much good for so many.
The opening ceremony of a golf event is special - the introduction by branch and conflict of all veterans attending, the color guard, the introduction of the Gold Star Families, the welcoming of all. These proceedings are very humbling and most rewarding.

I run an Adaptive Golf Clinic in Savannah for disabled warriors/veterans. Tee it Up for the Troops has been a huge benefit to our organization and our veterans. When we needed assistance, they were there. As a disabled veteran it is great to know that there are some organizations like TIUFTT that truly care about the veterans and the troops of all services. I know give them any and all support that I can to assist them in their mission.

We have worked with these folks in connection with the Randy Jones Foundation that strives to help the kids of military family by providing scholarships to them. Like Tee it up for the Troops it's all about helping those that serve our country so selflessly in the protection of our freedom.

Exceptional! Great cause and great company. Their events are very well organized and the work they do for veterans puts big non-profits like Wounded Warrior to shame
