Birdies for the Brave

About Birdies for the Brave

Birdies for the Brave was created in 2004 to raise funds for combat-wounded veterans. Thanks to the vision and the passionate support of PGA TOUR players, tournament fans, volunteers, TPC club members and corporate sponsors, Birdies for the Brave has grown exponentially across the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and Korn Ferry Tour.

The program has always encompassed a broad spectrum of military outreach and appreciation activities conducted during PGA TOUR tournaments, as well as a series of fundraising events hosted at partner properties – an effort that has raised much-needed funds for military home front charities which have provided direct services for military members, veterans, and their families ranging from financial aid and rehabilitation programs to housing, counseling and educational scholarships and career development and recruitment.

In 2024, Birdies for the Brave is proud to broaden and expand our programming and support to include First Responders and their families and a broader scope of qualified charitable organizations.

Birdies for the Brave has grown to include a variety of military outreach efforts:

  • Patriots’ Outpost military hospitality chalets
  • Military celebrations held during PGA TOUR tournaments
  • Letter-writing campaigns for the troops
  • Distribution of care packages to troops stationed abroad
  • Fundraising events conducted at TPCs nationwide.

Birdies for the Brave fundraising benefits nine national military homefront groups that are approved by the Department of Defense:

  • Special Operations Warrior Foundation
  • Homes for our Troops
  • Navy SEAL Foundation
  • Operation Homefront
  • Military Warriors Support Foundation
  • Green Beret Foundation
  • United Through Reading
  • K9s for Warriors
  • Troops Frist Foundation
