Semper Fi Fund Returns to Pursell Farms’ FarmLinks: Recovering Vets to Learn and Enhance Golf Skills May 9 – 11, 2017
Team Semper Fi Vets Challenge Themselves on Plush and Varying Greens
Who: Twenty-three service members from the Semper Fi Fund’s Team Semper Fi Program take on challenges in their recoveries to learn the game of golf at the scenic and peaceful FarmLinks at Pursell Farms.
Why Golf? Golf is a sport that can be played by all ability levels for a lifetime. It is the ultimate challenge both mentally and physically and serves the service members well on their road to recovery by sharpening their minds and their focus, as well as tuning up their bodies. The degree of difficulty of this game requires a lot of focus, determination, and ability to adapt, all qualities of our Team Semper Fi & Team America’s Fund Members,” says TSF Senior Manager, Casey Fisher.
WHAT: The second annual beginner and first-timers golf clinic hosted at Pursell Farms with coaching instruction from local, advanced level golf professionals. Service members will receive 10 hours of classroom-style instruction followed by 36 holes of golf over three days. These incredible, inspiring athletes will build more than just skills at this unforgettable event — they’ll also leave with camaraderie, confidence and life-long bonds with their fellow teammates.
WHEN: May 9 – 11, 2017
WHERE: Pursell Farms
386 Talladega Springs Rd,
Sylacauga, AL 35151
WHY: “Recovery Through Sport” has proven to be an ideal outlet for injured service members to hone both physical agility and mental focus, skills that are critical to navigating their recovery. Learning and practicing alongside fellow wounded service members, they can also trade stories, share strategies for coping with their injuries, and forge lasting friendships.
