PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) introduces golf to veterans and active-duty military to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. The program introduces the game of golf through a developmental 6-8-week curriculum led by PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency. All programs are funded by PGA REACH and supplemented by the Southwest PGA Foundation, so the cost of programming is free to all veterans.
Birdies for Good
Birdies for Good events uses golf as a platform for giving back to communities across Arizona and Southern Nevada. In these fun-filled events, Southwest PGA Professionals play 72 holes, all in one day, in an effort to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities, Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Teen Centers and the Southwest PGA Foundation. You can support our PGA Professionals as they “play for a purpose” by making a financial pledge for every birdie made or a flat donation.
License Plate Program
The Southwest PGA Foundation and the Arizona Department of Transportation worked together to unveil a specialty license plate available to Arizona registrants. The cost is only $25/year ($50/year if personalized), and the Southwest PGA Foundation receives $17 from each license plate sold. These proceeds go on to facilitate foundation programs that strengthen our communities by serving those who live within them.
