Our Life Changing Golf Trips
Our Fairways for Freedom™ golf journeys are truly unique experiences, and each year we conduct three different types of trips — Red, White and Blue Trips.
Red Trips are retreats for veterans only, with an emphasis on therapeutic sessions, relaxing activities such as hiking, fly fishing and horseback riding, and mindful resilience yoga. They also include lots of golf practice time, golf instruction and play on easier courses.
White Trips are International trips, with travel to Ireland, Scotland and other beautiful locations. Again, there is an emphasis on therapeutic sessions and mindful resilience yoga, plus golf practice time, golf instruction and play on moderately demanding golf courses.
Blue Trips are more demanding all around, with more intense itineraries and therapeutic sessions, including mindful resilience yoga, and golf almost every day on some of the world’s most spectacular and demanding golf courses.
On our White and Blue Trips, specially selected combat-injured Veterans are sponsored financially and joined on the trip by an Ambassador. Our Ambassadors are people who want to give something back to our men and women in uniform who have sacrificed so much. Together, they play some of the greatest golf courses in the world, create everlasting memories, develop rock-solid friendships and even more than that, inspire each other to continue to push forward.
Trips for 2017
We have three international trips scheduled for September-October 2017. Each one is 8 days/7 nights with golf on six spectacular courses. One trip is to Northern Scotland (Blue Trip) and is already sold out. Another one is to Northwest Ireland (White Trip) with limited Ambassador availability. A third trip to the Dublin area (White Trip) is now open for Ambassador bookings. Each trip consists of approximately eight Ambassadors, 13 combat-injured veterans and three staff. If you would like to become an Ambassador and support these outstanding men and women, please visit our Support our Veterans page. Send us an email on the Contact page, and one of our Fairways for Freedom™ dedicated staff will get back to you shortly.
