PGA HOPE Carolinas (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is an adaptive golf program offered by our PGA Professionals as a rehabilitation tool to improve our Veterans’ quality of life by enhancing their mental, social, physical, and emotional well-being; however, all Veterans are eligible to participate depending on space available in our clinics. Clinic space will be given to veterans on a first-come, first-serve basis and new veterans will take priority.
The only individuals allowed to give golf instruction at the PGA HOPE clinics are PGA HOPE certified PGA Members. Anyone who is NOT a PGA Member cannot give golf instruction. For example, a graduated PGA HOPE veteran or volunteer cannot give instruction or run a clinic.
Once Veterans graduate from one of the many different PGA HOPE programs in North and South Carolina, they will receive a graduate card. This graduate card gives Veterans access to a benefits package with many different playing opportunities and discounts on golf equipment, golf apparel, and more! This benefits package can ONLY be accessed at participating golf courses and stores by PGA HOPE graduated Veteran’s that show proof with their PGA HOPE graduation card. An example of the card is shown above.
Click HERE to view benefits.
*Please note, if you do not have a PGA HOPE graduation card, please connect with your PGA HOPE Lead Professional on receiving your card.*
For more information regarding PGA HOPE Carolinas, please contact PGA REACH Carolinas Coordinator, Mia Hayasaki at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (336)398-2848.
