PGA HOPE Programs Clinics

PGA Hope at Barla Golf Academy (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is a six-week adaptive golf program offered to Veterans free of charge with instruction from PGA Professionals.

The program is designed to introduce Veterans and Active Duty Military to the game of golf in an effort to enhance their overall quality of life. Whether you are a brand new golfer or have some experience, we hope that you will join us for this special program.

This introductory program is designed to welcome those of all ages, branches and eras of service, genders, and abilities to the golf course and share in camaraderie and fun together as a group. During this session you will learn the basics from grip to 9 holes of golf from PGA and LPGA Professionals.

Each session will focus on the various golf skills you will use while playing. In addition to learning the basics, you will be guided onto the golf course at the last session to put your skills into action in a casual, friendly setting. Companions and/or therapists are always welcome to attend.

  • No golf equipment is required. If you do have clubs and/or any specialty equipment, please bring them with you.

  • No prior golf experience necessary

  • No VA disability rating required

  • Veterans do not have to have combat or deployments in order to participate

  • All expenses associated with PGA HOPE are covered
