PGA HOPE Secretary’s Cup

PGA HOPE Secretary’s Cup celebrates the PGA HOPE Program by providing a unique and memorable experience for our military Veterans and the PGA Professionals who work tirelessly to positively impact Veterans’ lives. This annual event in conjunction with the week of PGA Championship, began in 2016 and is named after the Secretary of Veteran Affairs in recognition of the Memorandum of Understanding between PGA REACH and the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Each team is made up of four Veteran PGA HOPE Graduates and one PGA or LPGA Professional. They play together in a 9-hole scramble competing against other PGA Sections from across the country.

The Gateway Section has had two teams compete: in 2018 at Whitmoor Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri and in 2023 at Penfield Country Club in Rochester, New York.
