PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of the PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to active-duty military and military veterans to enhance their physical, social, mental and emotional well-being.

Gateway PGA HOPE Programs are 6-8 week golf-development programs taught by local PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf techniques for working with veterans with disabilities. The programs are free to all active duty military and military veterans.

Gateway PGA Professionals have committed to furthering PGA HOPE programming throughout the region since 2011 and have served over 200 veterans to date.
