PGA HOPE introduces golf to veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being, according to its website,

“Participants of PGA HOPE programs include military veterans living with physical or cognitive challenges such as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and amputees, among other challenges,” according to

“The Department of Veterans Affairs research and clinical experience verify that physical activity is important to maintaining good health, speeding recovery and improving the overall quality of life. For many injured veterans, adaptive sports provide their first exposure to physical activity after injury.”

“PGA HOPE programming is fully funded by the NCPGA Foundation and offered at NO COST for military veterans.”

The six-week PGA HOPE program, open to veterans of all abilities, includes instruction in putting, chipping, pitching, and full swing, as well as on-course playing.
