During these unprecedented times, the self-sacrificing acts of kindness and displays of unity that we are seeing in people in many communities across the United States are heartwarming. FOG wishes to thank all first responders and medical professionals who are at the forefront of saving lives and applaud those who are generously supporting their efforts.


As we continue to look to the future, FOG is committed to helping children of all ages to enjoy the character-building game of golf and help them to pursue their passion… after all, some of them may themselves be future leaders, first responders, doctors or scientists one day. Every donation counts, large or small, and we thank you for giving from your heart.

The kindest words in any language are “Thank You!”


At FOG, we hear these words almost every day. The coaches, players, parents and teammates of those FOG helps the most are very vocal and enthusiastic in their response to FOG’s crucial and continual support of all young golfers. Their many e-mails, letters and other sincere personal expressions are a constant reinforcement that we at FOG are doing the right thing for many youths today.
