Welcome to Fairways for Warriors
Fairways for Warriors is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a better quality of life for our Wounded Warriors by teaching them to play the game of golf, a game that can be played and enjoyed for the rest of their lives.
During our golf clinics we will employ a teach, play, compete cycle to be repeated each clinic session. In this way you will learn how, demonstrate how, and finally compete against your fellow clinic mates.
Golf has proven to be an excellent tool for mental and physical rehabilitation. Fairways for Warriors provides the opportunity for combat-wounded men and women to heal from their most significant injuries, injuries that canâ€™t be seen such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and more. Overcoming obstacles associated with physical military service-related disabilities can include relearning fine motor skills, skills developed and required in playing golf.
Tom Underdown, President of Fairways For Warriors, was on Golf Channel’sÂ “Morning Drive” program this Fourth of July talking about our organization and what we are doing to help the Wounded Warriors of Central Florida. Â Hotlink below…

The Warrior Golf Club is a subsidiary of Fairways for Warriors, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a better quality of life for our Wounded Warriors and Veterans by teaching them to play the game of golf, a game that can be played and enjoyed for the rest of their lives.
After participating in our clinics, we have arranged for some of you to play the various courses around Orlando for a reduced cost or sometimes for free.Â If you want to play a round on one of these courses you MUST call Tom, Bob, or Mike at leastÂ 24 hours in advance, and we will set up your tee times for you.Â This is to ensure that you are, in fact, a member of Fairways For Warriors and to keep our records in order.Â As I’m sure you are aware, weekends will always be busier than weekdays.Â A Monday-Friday tee time will always be easier to accommodate.Â Just showing up and wanting to play is NOT acceptable and you will be turned away or you will have to pay full price forÂ greens fees and cart fees.Â Help us keep the courses that we work with happy, and you will have a much more pleasant golf experience.
