New 100 Holes for HOPE Logo.jpg

Why we are doing this?

In hopes of generating funds for the PGA Hope of the Carolinas Section, a community of Professionals wants to come together to help the veterans who have protected our freedom participate in a game and lifestyle of golf, as well as generating excitement and camaraderie for section Professionals and future PGA REACH section of the Cape Fear Chapter.  The program introduces the game of golf through a developmental 6-8 week curriculum, taught by PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency.

 

All programs are funded by PGA REACH and supplemented by PGA Section Foundations, so the cost of programming is free to all Veterans.  PGA HOPE has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which enables Recreational Therapists to refer Veterans to the PGA HOPE program as a form of therapy. Through a robust program strategy, PGA HOPE aspires to create a physically and emotionally healthier Veteran community by shaping lives, changing lives, and possibly saving lives through the game of golf.

Who's participating?

Section Professionals as invited by the Cape Fear Chapter.  Jeremy Wetherton and Chris Byrd of Cape Fear Country Club, Marshall Stott and Justin Riker of River Landing, Abby Byrd and Staff of the Bald Head Island Club, as well as any others who may want to participate.

Goal: $1,500
