PGA HOPE for Veterans
The Indiana Section PGA located in Franklin, IN partners with local VA hospitals and military installations to initiate a program known as PGA HOPE. PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is a year round golf program for all military Veterans, designed to enhance their rehabilitation and assimilation back into society.
The HOPE program provides all Veterans with FREE golf instruction taught by local PGA Professionals. The program includes a working partnership with physical therapists, introduction of the participant to the sport of golf, golf instruction, playing opportunities and social events – using golf as an activity to assist veterans with their progress in rehab along with helping them to assimilate and mainstream with their families and into their communities and into life. Our program at Highland Golf and Country Club in Indianapolis was recently highlighted in the Indy Star.
