The Forces on the Fairways Project was established by The Palozola Foundation in 2018. The purpose of the project is to implement the mission statement of the foundation: "To heal the body, mind and spirit of Veterans, through golf. " We feel that golf can have a therapeutic and healing affect by providing a good challenge, attainable goals, a healthy distraction, time in nature and friendly competition.
Forces on the Fairways is meant to concisely summarize our mission, emphasizing our focus on Veterans and we use golf as the medium through which we seek help heal the physical and psychic wounds that thousands, of Veterans returning from their service to our great country have suffered. We also recognize that the families of Veterans are also affected and we seek to introduce them to the game.
Through our annual Forces on the Fairways Golf Tournament, we seek to bring in funds that go toward:
Helping local organizations that assist veterans with PTSD issues
A golf simulator for the VA's physical therapy program
Helping those with disabling wounds to modify swings or use prosthetics to play golf
The Forces for Food Veterans/Military Pantry at Jefferson Barracks
Supporting the healing process by funding free 16-week golf leagues for veterans at 6 local golf courses & 1 indoor facility
Please help us help Veterans through participating in, or sponsoring our annual Forces on the Fairways Golf Tournament, or making a donation to The Palozola Foundation.
