On Course Foundation unveils new ambassadors

1.08pm 7th April 2021 - Corporate

The On Course Foundation has signed up tour stars Colin Montgomerie and Carly Booth to represent the military charity as it continues its mission to support the recovery of wounded Service personnel and veterans through the sport of golf. 

Eight-time Ryder Cup player Montgomerie is keen to extend his association with the Armed Forces, having spent a few days in Afghanistan at Camp Bastion when he visited the troops in 2011, taking with him the Ryder Cup trophy that his team had won when he was captain at Celtic Manor the previous year. 

Fellow Scot Carly Booth is a three-time winner on the Ladies European Tour and has long held a passion for helping others and promoting the benefits of golf to people with disabilities.

A spokesperson for On Course Foundation said: “The charity is proud to have two such high-profile names from the world of professional golf join its list of ambassadors and help raise awareness of its work in using the sport to help its beneficiaries rehabilitation and return to a normal civilian life whilst looking to source employment opportunities within the game to ensure their long-term future.”
