It's impossible to adequately repay the service of veterans who return from war zones bearing the most profound of injuries. As a humble token of our gratitude, the annual Wounded Heroes Golf Classic offers these brave men and women a day of fun-filled brotherhood. Friendly rivalries play out on two superb golf courses. Veterans and community come together to enjoy patriotic entertainment. Evening festivities include dinner and silent and live auctions, with the proceeds benefiting our own Lowcountry heroes. Originally held only at Hampton Hall Club, an exquisite Pete Dye-designed signature golf course, the Wounded Heroes Golf Classic has expanded to also include Belfair Golf Club, with two spectacular Tom Fazio-designed courses.
The tournament now features over 220 participants.
We are honored each year by the participation of Purple Heart recipients and combat injured/medically retired servicemen and service women from the Afghanistan and Iraq war zones. Some of our attending Wounded Heroes have played golf before, some never have, and some are unable. But, either way, they get to join several of our 4somes throughout the day, in whatever capacity they choose. And, it gives our golf participants the opportunity to meet and thank these amazing Heroes.
All Wounded Heroes attend the event as our guests and our primary focus is simple. We want them to have a great day of recreation and recognition ... a day that's all about them. In 2017, we had 31 Wounded Heroes join us.
They are joined by fellow active duty and retired personnel, area residents, sponsors, contributors, and business people who gather together in support of our Wounded Heroes.
LFWMH is a 100% All Volunteer organization. This leads to a very high percentage of all proceeds directly benefiting the charities we have chosen as the recipients of our donations.
SOWF gave me the opportunity that my dad would have wanted me to have.
SOWF provided me with the tools to be successful, both in school and in life. They gave me the opportunity to intern with them, which was a learning experience that helped me in many ways. They are an organization that I trust and believe in wholeheartedly. I believe the staff and volunteers of SOWF truly care about each child, and they make it their mission to help them in any way they can.Kaylee Henry Read More
SOWF has been there since day one of my associate degree.
They have always made sure I got what I needed for my living expenses as well as my semester expenses. They not only have given me financial stability when I needed it the most, but also moral and emotional support. If it wasn’t for SOWF I wouldn’t be the professional teacher that I am today. For every success that I made and continue to make in my life, SOWF will be there at the top of the list for all of the thanks and recognition that they deserve for helping me carve my future.Steven Schmauss Read More
SOWF provided me with the opportunity to be more engaged
in my studies rather than worrying about jobs and extracurricular work to pay for schooling. In addition, I was able to invest my time in leadership positions which have taught me so much as a person.Ryan Soltes Read More
