Pin Pals Junior Links, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, will be hosting the Operation Game On Golf Classic fundraising golf tournament on Aug. 15 at Morgan Run Club & Resort to benefit Operation Game On and its Little Heroes programs. Operation Game On was established in February 2008 to provide a golf rehabilitation program for the returning physical and mental combat injured troops by providing 40 weeks of free golf swing lessons at the Del Mar Golf Center, on course golf lessons at Morgan Run Resort, and custom fitted Taylor Made golf clubs, golf bags, Adidas golf shoes, and golf apparel provided by National University Systems.
Why golf? It has been determined by doctors, prosthetic specialist, physical therapist, and counselors at the Naval Medical Center San Diego that Operation Game On has become a very popular program for use as an essential link to the rehabilitation process for combat wounded military personnel who have returned home with extreme physical and mental disabilities. Golf gives our combat injured troops the confidence to regain an active lifestyle and provides hope for a bright future.
Little Heroes was created with a partnership with the Armed Services YMCA of San Diego and this program is exclusive to the children of our active military personnel. The free program consist of five, eight week sessions of golf lessons to children ages 7 to 17. All lessons are free to the families and the ASYMCA and conducted at Riverwalk Golf Club.
