About Tee It Up for the Troops

Tee It Up for the Troops believes in engaging and inspiring communities across the United States to do great things on behalf of the military men and women who have served and sacrificed so much for our freedoms. Tee It Up for the Troops combines golf events with an inspirational ceremony, instilling a sense of pride, honor, respect and appreciation for all those who have served and given so greatly.

Helped more than 5,000 veterans to restore a sense of self, family, and hope. Served more than 1,400 of the most severely wounded service members with year-round programs in more than 40 different sports nationwide.
