The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary took part Aug. 10 in the nonprofit Operation Game On at its eighth annual Golf Classic and fundraiser at Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe.

In their booth at the 3rd hole tee box, Rotarians supplied refreshments and a chance to win a court sponsorship at their Oct. 4 Bocce Tournament and fundraiser at the Del Mar Horse park.

Operation Game On will be one of this year’s three major beneficiaries of DMSB Rotary’s Bocce Tournament along with Just in Time for Foster Youth and Reality Changers.

Operation Game On provides golf as a form of rehabilitation for returning combat-injured troops who have physical and mental disabilities. Operation Game On gives them a special custom intro-to-golf package providing:

• Golf lessons by certified PGA Golf Instructors;

• Professional fitting session with PGA qualified staff at TaylorMade’s “The Kingdom”;

• Golf equipment including a brand-new full set of Taylor Made clubs and golf bag;

• Golf apparel including Adidas golf shoes and headwear;

• Access to San Diego county courses at special discounted rates.

Golf allows these veterans to be more active, compete, laugh, create new friendships, relax, focus, and challenge their muscles outside of their regular physical therapy. It also gives them hope of a clearer future after their tragic injuries and experiences of war.
