Florida Veteran’s Golf Foundation sponsors W.R.H.S. golf outing!

The Florida Veteran’s Golf Foundation (FVGF) was delighted to help sponsor one of the holes for the Wiregrass Ranch High School Golf teams and Cheerleaders!  On September 16th, the W.R.H.S. school Golf teams, both boys and girls, along with the Cheerleaders, had a golf outing at Pebble Creek Golf Club in Wesley Chapel.  Not only did our organization help out by sponsoring one of the holes, Mr. Bender joined one of the threesomes playing in the outing.  The fourth player would be a student that was auctioned off, with all proceeds going to benefit the school teams.  Mr. Bender’s threesome, along with the student golfer turned in a score of 14 under par!  This score was good enough to claim first place and all of this group was awarded a very nice trophy, which was supplied from Crown Trophy in Tampa.

Next time you are by the driving range, stop in and ask Fred to see the trophy.  I am sure he will be happy to show you it.  Florida Veteran’s Golf Foundation is a non-profit that provides an avenue for military servicemen and women, both current and retired, to allow socialization, friendship, and the ability to share their difficulties with civilian life by using golfing.  The outdoor atmosphere allows the members to relax in a setting that is comfortable and safe, whereby allowing them to release from everyday stress situations.  If you would like to help out, please feel free to contact us, using the contact form or the telephone number or email at the top of the page.  Any monetary donations can be sent from the front page using the donate button or contacting us above.  We will be happy to provide directions.  Your donations are tax deductible due to our 501 C-3 status.

More than just an Organization!

Florida Veteran’s Golf Foundation is more than just golfing with Veterans!  At our Private Driving Range, our members meet up and chat and reminisce about times.  You don’t have to know the other person, to find out that you both have a lot in common.  Just this week, we had the pleasure of two of our members meeting up for the first time, just sitting and chatting.  Here are Earl and Hafiz relaxing at the range sharing war stories.  Earl is 88 years young and was with the 82nd airborne.  Hafiz was in the Marines.  You never know who you might just meet, while driving golf balls.
