PGA Helping Our Patriots Everywhere (HOPE) provides free golf instruction to our military veterans and their families.

Introducing golf and using the game to enhance veterans physical, mental and social well-being!

100 Holes for HOPE Golf Marathon
On Friday, July 8h at Town of Colonie Golf Course, Noel Gebauer, PGA & Christian Torres, PGA Associate will be embarking on a golf marathon of playing 100 Holes for HOPE to help raise funds to cover the expenses of the PGA HOPE programming for our local veterans because it is all complimentary. The two professionals will be playing 100 holes of golf in a head to head match play format in a friendly competitive event from dawn to dusk. Each HOPE program costs approximately $3,500-$5,500 in funding to operate depending on length.



PGA HOPE’s Goals are to:

  1. Create a safe environment for Veterans and their families and establish relationships of trust with PGA Professionals
  2. Have fun and encourage a culture of camaraderie
  3. Teach Veterans the basics of golf including etiquette and course management
  4. Empower Veterans to feel confident playing golf on their own after the program
  5. Ensure year round programming opportunities as well as progressive programming
  • PGA HOPE serves as the military pillar of PGA REACH, and a rehabilitative program designed to introduce golf to veterans with disabilities in order to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
  • PGA HOPE is the only golf program for veterans taught by PGA Professionals trained in VA-Approved Adaptive Sports Instruction.
  • The mission of PGA REACH is to positively impact lives by enabling access to PGA Professionals, PGA Sections and the game of golf.
  • Each PGA HOPE program requires $3,500-$5,500 in funding to operate the 5-7 week program.
  • We have huge aspirations to offer programming year round, grow our program chapters throughout the section geographically, grow participation #s in each, offer post-graduate programming, in addition to helping secure our veteran golfers with equipment and specialized/adaptive equipment needs.


Rhonda Liddell: It is my personal mission to help introduce my fellow Veterans and their families to the game of Golf! This program was life-altering for me and I want to share it with everyone. You never know who just might need this.
