Grow the Game and Honor Military Veterans
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 and learning basic rules of golf, etiquette, and pace of play. Veterans must attend a majority of the lessons in order to receive a PGA HOPE Graduate ID card. The program has graduated over 600 veterans from the following facilities: Cypress Lakes GC, Presidio GC, Metropolitan GC, Haggin Oaks GC, Cherry Island GC, Diablo Creek GC, Shoreline GC, Pleasanton GC, and Bayonet Blackhorse GC.
