PGA Hope

  • PGA HOPE serves as the military pillar of PGA REACH, and a rehabilitative program designed to introduce golf to veterans with disabilities in order to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being
  • PGA HOPE is the only golf program for veterans taught by PGA Professionals trained in VA-Approved Adaptive Sports Instruction
  • The mission of PGA REACH is to positively impact lives by enabling access to PGA Professionals, PGA Sections and the game of golf.

PGA HOPE’s goals are to:

  1. Create a safe environment for Veterans and their families and establish relationships of trust with PGA Professionals
  2. Have fun and encourage a culture of comradery
  3. Teach Veterans the basics of golf including etiquette and course management
  4. Empower Veterans to feel confident playing golf on their own after the program

Supporting PGA HOPE

  • Veteran suicide is a major issue in the Veteran community, and statistics show 22 Veterans a day commit suicide. NENY PGA HOPE is working to change this statistic by utilizing the game of golf as a form of therapy.
  • Each PGA HOPE program requires $3,500-$5,500 in funding to operate the 5-7 week program.
  • We have huge aspirations to offer programming year round, grow our program chapters throughout the section geographically, grow participation #s in each, offer post-graduate programming, in addition to helping secure our veteran golfers with equipment and specialized/adaptive equipment needs.

    Please contact us at 518-438-8645 about corporate partnership opportunities, giving charitable donations, volunteering or assisting us in awareness and reaching new veteran populations close to you.
