The NCPGA Foundation is seeking partner facilities to support the growing number of military veterans who want to continue to play golf following their graduation from the PGA HOPE Northern California program. PGA HOPE "Helping Our Patriots Everywhere" is our flagship military program that provides free golf lessons to disabled or able bodied veterans taught by PGA instructors. The lessons are used as a rehabilitative tool to help veterans improve their physical, emotional, social and mental health.
Veterans attend six weeks of lessons learning to play golf. The clinic also includes trainng on basic rules of golf, etiquette, and pace of play. The veterans must attend a majority of the lessons in order to qualify to receive a PGA HOPE Graduation ID card. To date the program has graduated approximately 150 veterans from the following facilities: Cypress Lakes GC, Presidio GC, Sequoyah CC, and Cherry Island GC.
