Web.com Donates Operation Support Military Golf Website Design
Global Company Supports Non-Profit’s Mission –
‘Reviving the Golf Courses that Revitalize Our Heroes™’
June 7, 2018 (JACKSONVILLE, Florida) – Operation Support Military Golf (OSMG) – the non-profit organization that exists to enhance service members’ and their families morale, welfare, and recreation by upgrading non-appropriated military golf courses and associated facilities at bases worldwide – today announced that its website, www.operationsupportmilitarygolf.org, has been redesigned on a pro bono basis by Web.com, the marketing partner for businesses wanting to connect with more customers and grow.
“This project was a labor of love and a win-win for us on multiple levels, said David L. Brown, Web.com’s chairman, chief executive officer and president, who grew up playing on a military base course and understands the many benefits these facilities provide our service members and their families. “We were honored to lend our expertise in online marketing to support our servicemen and servicewomen in a recreational activity that we care about deeply.”
For the last five years, Web.com has been the umbrella sponsor of the Web.com Tour and a proud sponsor of the PGA TOUR. Web.com also is a sponsor of Professional Golfer Jim Furyk and builds websites and marketing campaigns for some of the world’s most successful professional golfers.
“Web.com’s invaluable support led by Mr. Brown and a team of web development experts enables OSMG to further our mission of ‘Reviving the Golf Course that Revitalize Our Heroes’,” said OSMG Founder Jennifer Poth. “Our new Web.com designed website delivers a professional message to those looking to learn about OSMG.”
Other organizations partnering with OSMG include American Society of Golf Course Architects (www.asgca.org), Arnold Palmer Design Company (www.arnoldpalmerdesign.com), Golf Course Builders Association of America (www.gcbaa.org), Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (www.gcsaa.org), MacCurrach Golf Construction (www.maccurrachgolf.com), and Sanford Golf Design (www.sanfordgolfdesign.com).
“In-kind services are invaluable and crucial to our success,” said Poth. “It is our hope that these generous contributions will inspire those outside the golf arena to contribute financially to help us to complete all aspects of military golf upgrades.”
As a groundbreaking, global, military supportive, 501(c)(3) non-profit, OSMG’s goal is to provide a $1 million infusion to each military golf facility. Helping increase accessibility for our wounded and aging veterans, reducing golf facilities maintenance costs through modernized equipment, and increasing overall visual enjoyment are just some of the specific benefits from the upgrades.
OSMG was created to serve those who have, do and will serve our nation by ensuring their Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) is not forgotten. Positive MWR is an integral component in the well-being and quality of life of our service members and their families.

About Operation Support Military Golf
OSMG was founded by Jennifer Poth, stemming from her lifelong desire to serve in the United States Armed Services. However, being born with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, also known as an Adrenal Disorder, prevented Poth’s life goal. Her father, Lt. Col. John E. Poth, USAF Ret., works with Jennifer at OSMG and inspired her to follow in his footsteps of service. Lt. Col. Poth introduced Jennifer to golf by the age of five. While she couldn’t join a military branch, OSMG provides her a different way to serve those who serve.
Military base courses serve active duty and reserve personnel as a means of R&R with family, friends and their units; medically retired (e.g. wounded service members), as positive outdoor activity throughout their physical and mental recovery and adjustment process; retired veterans, after an honorable career; future generations of service-members, especially in the recruitment process; and families of all the above, by providing service members the knowledge that their dependents have a safe environment to learn and play a game that teaches positive, life-long lessons, such as the values of integrity and tradition. This is especially important during deployments or as a means of reintegration upon their return.
