PGA HOPE

PGA Hope, Logo

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 Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency. All programs are funded by PGA REACH and supplemented by PGA Section Foundations, so the cost of programming is free to all Veterans.

Learn more about the impact of PGA HOPE in the Hero video below.

How Can I Help?

Michigan is home to over 600,000 military veterans and it is estimated that 120,000 of these veterans have a service-connected disability. We are looking for facilities that have a passion for helping those who served our country. By taking a quick 3-minute survey you can help support our local veteran population and let us know what you are doing and willing to do at your facility.
