  • It is a fact that suicide is a major issue among military Veterans, with recent statistical studies showing that 22 Veterans a day commit suicide. PGA HOPE is working to change this statistic.
  • 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.
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs research and clinical experience verify that physical activity is important to maintaining good health, speeding recovery and improving 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 PGA REACH and is NO COST for Military Veterans.
  • PGA HOPE has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Department of Veterans Affairs, which enables Recreational Therapists to refer Veterans to the PGA HOPE program as a form of therapy.

PGA HOPE Georgia (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.

  • Gives a hand-up to our nation’s Veterans.
  • Provides Veterans with camaraderie and a potentially life-saving therapy for Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury.
  • Improved quality of life for our Veterans with injuries, illnesses, or challenges
