Our Story

Over 10 years ago, Army Colonel Fred Swope, the Garrison Commander at Fort Campbell, KY, shared an extraordinary idea with the late Ken Peck, a paraplegic who relearned the game of golf without the use of his legs. The idea was to design and construct dedicated golf facilities for wounded and disabled service members and veterans, giving them more than the public driving range.  This idea quickly gained momentum, a 501 (c) non-profit was formed, and advocates have helped lay the groundwork for today’s WOTG.
