Team Semper Fi Athletes Challenge Themselves on J. Press Maxwell Championship Course
Who: Thirty 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 gentle, but unforgiving slopes, rolling hills and deep bunkers at The Inverness Golf Club.
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 says TSF Senior Manager, Casey Fisher.
WHAT: The fourth annual never before, beginner and intermediate golf clinic hosted at The Inverness Golf Club 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.

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.
