World's Largest Golf Outing™

The World's Largest Golf Outing™ (WLGO) is a simultaneous, golf fundraiser played at more than 110 Indigo Golf Partners-managed courses in 28 states. Since its inception in 2011, the World's Largest Golf Outing has hosted 36,000-plus golfers and contributed more than $3.4 million to support our wounded warriors.

Part of event proceeds and all donations from non-players benefit military charities. Participating courses honor the military with moments of silence, ceremonial tee shots, standing ovations, national anthems and color guards before play, patriot decorations adorning fairways and greens and on-site military vehicles and fly-overs.
Let's Make a Difference, Together.

In 2014, over 12,100 golfers – including 364 injured service members – participated in the single-day outing, raising more than $887,000, a record high. Bill Clinton, the nation’s 42nd President and 2014 recipient of the PGA of America’s Distinguished Service Award, supported the WLGO in his suburban New York City community.

In 2015, WLGO shattered the previous year with $1,024,287 raised, 12,397 participants, 567 injured service men and women, two holes in one and a whole lot of fun!

The brainchild of Indigo Golf Partners, the WLGO is driven by the company’s 6,000 employees, business partners and loyal golfers.

“It’s rewarding to see Fisher House in action, helping our service men and women, and their families in need,” says Alex Elmore, president of Indigo Golf Partners. “While the World’s Largest Golf Outing is a fun event, paying it forward to provide sanctuaries for those who protect our freedoms is what it’s all about.”

Highlights from the emotional and inspiring event include: live coverage on Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive” in Florida; participation from national and local politicians, professional athletes and media; and veterans and active service members sharing their military experiences.

The World's Largest Golf Outing (WLGO) currently benefits, Fisher House Foundation, which is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.
