PGA HOPE

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

PGA HOPE is a five to six week program located on the grounds of the VAMC at Custer Greens Golf Course, Battle Creek Michigan.

Spring Session – Every Tuesday beginning April 23rd – May 21st from 3-5pm.

Fall Session – Every Tuesday beginning September 10 – October 8th.
Time to be determined. 

To register please contact the VA Medical Center in Battle Creek or email Chelsea Guoynes cguoynes@michiganpga.com.

PGA HOPE Pro Am

With the support from the first PGA HOPE Pro Am the Section was able to buy a fairway mower, Custer Greens had been mowing the grounds by hand with a rotary mower. We were also able  to get Kalamazoo Country Club to donate their staff & resources to aerate and top dress the greens to get the course back up and running. Being able to provide funding for proper maintenance at Custer Greens is an important part of PGA HOPE and how golf can impact our veterans outside of the program.

Stay tuned for the next PGA HOPE Pro Am in 2019!
