Wounded Warrior Homes Hosts Fairways 4 Veterans Virtual Golf Tournament

With the TDJ Golf app, golfers will play at more than 90 San Diego golf courses to raise money for veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injury

San Diego CAWounded Warrior Homes annual golf outing, Fairways 4 Veterans, will go virtual this year to raise money for veteran services. Proceeds will provide transitional housing for single post-9/11 veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) through the Wounded Warrior Homes program.

In this year’s new virtual format, golfers will play a round of golf at a course of their choosing during the U.S. Open, September 17th-20th, 2020. Using the TDJ Golf App, golfers play a virtual round of golf with three PGA pros from the U.S. Open. The app keeps track of their participant scores and the pros’ scores and the top “foursomes” will win prizes.

The City and County of San Diego have not only one of the highest population of veterans, but also one of the highest number of homeless veterans. Wounded Warrior Homes’ aim is to alleviate the growing stress of unsheltered vets in California by providing transitional housing to these veterans. Poverty ranks as the leading factor in veteran homelessness. Civilian jobs tend to be hard to transition into, making it hard to earn a living wage. The most serious cause for veteran homelessness is Traumatic Brain Injury and/or Post Traumatic Stress.

The cost of participation is $100, which will be donated to Wounded Warrior Homes, plus each player’s individual greens fees. Community members can also sponsor a veteran to play, with a donation of $100 to the nonprofit.
