Still dealing in the midst of COVID, we're thrilled to announce our NENY PGA Section flagship program hosted at the Town of Colonie GC has been confirmed and will be a condensed version.

Mondays, August 10th; 17th; 24th and 31st from 4:00pm-6:00pm. *Graduation ceremony/day will be Monday, August 31st

We are seeking additional PGA Member/Associate to serve as Instructors if you have the time and availability to take part in this program please contact Christian Torres, NENY PGA Director of Player Development at

Class A professional instructors will be compensated $50/per hour and Associates are $35/per hour.

We are working closely with the Albany/Stratford VA located in Albany and class size is LIMITED to 25 so all veterans must register in advance for the program through Christian. 518-791-6548.

NENY PGA Partner - Double H Making Incredible Strides During COVID

Below is a message from CEO, Max Yurenda on the camp's recent fundraising drive.

Generous gifts from caring friends like you helped the Double H Camp meet - and exceed - our $100,000 matching gift goal! Together, you helped us raise over $150,000 to support Double H Ranch's innovative and alternative programs this summer.

If you are one of the generous individuals who donated, thank you so much. As we enter our third summer session of the Camp@HHome program, your gift will go to work immediately to help bring joy and the magic of camp to the many children who are joining us safely from wherever they are.

The kids we serve get a chance to feel – quite simply – like kids. They deserve that. And we can continue our important mission in 2020 and beyond thanks to your compassion. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

PS - If you'd like to learn more about how we've adapted our traditional summer programs to a Virtual Summer Camp, click or tap here to watch our recent Camp@HHome webinar.
