Welcome to Tee It Up for the Troops at Mendakota Country Club

The Membership and Organizing Committee at Mendakota Country Club is proud to have hosted 15 consecutive years of fundraising events in support of Tee It Up for the Troops and its mission to serve combat veterans and their families.  Located in Mendota Heights, Minnesota, Mendakota Country Club was the host site for the inaugural Tee It Up for the Troops event back in 2005 and has now raised over $1.9 million over the past 15 years!  Through the passionate efforts of Club management, a dedicated team of volunteers, and a loyal group of local sponsors and golfers, we are very proud of the mighty tradition that has been developed at Mendakota as we look to support our American heroes!  We hope you will join us as we look toward another decade of support for our veterans

  • "I have experienced incredible healing from my involvement with Tee It Up for the Troops. As a combat veteran who sustained multiple traumatic brain injuries in Afghanistan, this organization is helping myself and other soldiers heal and find peace. I had an amazing opportunity at their REUNION event reuniting with my battle buddy and engaging in great fellowship on and off the course. Seeing the release of burdens and bottled up pain through sharing and inspirational sessions was magic! Tee It Up for the Troops has inspired me to pursue golf as a profession and I’m working to become a PGA Teaching Professional so I can help other veterans experience the same healing through golf that I have. I also serve fellow veterans through involvement in the George W. Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative. Thank you Tee It Up for the Troops for helping me to move forward!”  –Colby Geeker, U.S. Army, Three-time Purple Heart Recipient
