Welcome to the end-of-the-summer edition of the Project Golf Newsletter. I can’t help but reflect on 2019 when Project Golf began as a simple whiteboard idea to grow the game of golf through several different channels…from junior golfers to beginning golfers, to disabled veterans, and everything in between.
An Introduction to Golf
We need your help to bring the next generation of golfers to the game, to support Veteran golf programs, and to provide top-quality instruction. Let’s preserve and grow the game we love!
5 Reasons to Play Golf
The Future of Golf Begins Right Here
Project Golf is growing the game of golf, one golfer at a time. Our goal is to bring people to game, not for one day, but for their lifetime. We bring junior golfers to the sport and help them stick with golf through high school and beyond. We offer golf as therapy to Veterans and Disabled Veterans to recognize their sacrifices and to allow them to use the golf course as a place of solace.
Breaking Through the Barrier
We understand the game of golf can be intimidating. We are here to help new golfers overcome the initial discomfort of trying something new. We take the time to discuss and demonstrate the normal golf procedures, like checking in to a facility, booking a tee time, and golf course etiquette. When these newly minted golfers are ready to commit to the sport, we offer advice regarding golf equipment purchases. Most importantly, we connect people with others who are just starting out on their golf journey, so that they can create lasting friendships.
As a critical element of their involvement with Project Golf‘s PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), PGA Professionals undergo special training to help our wounded veterans learn and enjoy the game through adaptive means. Hear from PGA HOPE National Instructor Brian Oliver and PGA REACH Carolinas Programs Director Jessica Asbury on the impact this effort is having on veterans in need.
