PGA HOPE

 

PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the

Charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.

The program introduces the game of golf through a developmental 6-8 week curriculum,

taught by PGA REACH and supplemented by PGA  Section Foundations, so the cost

of programming is free to all Veterans.

 

PGA HOPE has a Memorandum to Understanding (MOU) with the Department of Veterans

Affairs (VA), which enables Recreational Therapists to refer Veterans to the PGA HOPE program

as a form of therapy. Through a robust program strategy, PGA HOPE aspires to create a physically and emotionally healthier Veteran community by shaping lives, changing lives, and possibly saving lives through the game of golf.

 

 

 

 

The Hero video below, featuring Jack Nicklaus, highlights the positive impact that

PGA HOPE has on the lives of military Veterans.
