What Does Operation Game On Do?
Operation Game On gives returning combat-injured troops suffering from physical and mental disabilities a very special custom intro-to-golf package. With your support it is our goal to keep providing them with the following:
- Golf lessons by certified PGA Golf Instructors
- Professional fitting session with PGA qualified staff at TaylorMade’s ‘The Kingdom’
- Golf equipment including a brand new full set of Taylor Made clubs and golf bag.
- Golf apparel including Adidas golf shoes and headwear
- Access to San Diego county courses at special discounted rates
Foremost, we are giving these HEROES the confidence and the chance to transition from the trauma of IEDs and dangerous missions to the accomplishment and thrills of GIRs and sinking a birdie putt.
Wives of Warriors (WOW Program)
Operation Game On does not want to leave out the wives of our troops. In the FALL of 2012 we began taking this program to the wives of combat-injured troops. It’s been rewarding to introduce them to this wonderful game of a lifetime too. View their heart-warming video.
Special thanks to the Del Mar Golf Center for helping us reach our goals and a huge thanks to TaylorMade Golf for providing us with anything we need. There are also so many instructors, volunteers and special partners that go out of their way to help us. We thank you all!

Operation Game On’s Mission
Provide golf as a form of rehabilitation for our returning combat-injured troops suffering from physical and mental disabilities. The troops' doctors regularly advise some of their patients to try our program.
Golf is good for the mind and for the body. It allows them to compete, laugh, relax, focus, and challenge their muscles outside of regular PT. It gives them hope of a clearer future after their tragic injuries and experiences of war.
It's only through your donations that we can accomplish our mission.
Golf: A Game to Last A Lifetime
Our goal is to reach out to our troops and their families to show them the honor they deserve through an introduction to the game of golf. Golf gives them a chance to compete and be active. It's a fun wholesome and challenging outdoor activity. Golf helps build self confidence and teaches determination and there's also no better place to create new friendships like the golf course.
We have several ongoing programs and events as well as our annual golf tournament. We are busy making plans for the 2013 Golf Classic and other fundraisers. Stay Tuned!
