In 2012, at the request of Mather VA Hospital, Marine Corps veteran Joe Neff created the Veteran’s Golf Program. What began as a six man team is now pushing 100 participants and is open to all veterans whether male, female, disabled, injured, or ill. There is no cost for the participants, the program is 100% self-sufficient, and comprised of volunteer coaches.
Through the generosity of individual donors and sponsoring businesses, they’ve scaled to expand their influence outside of just golf. They also provide equipment, transportation, and even housing for veterans in need. This past holiday season they provided dinners, presents, and friendly support for in need vets and their families.
The sport of golf has allowed veterans of various backgrounds and ages to gather in a nurturing atmosphere in which to train, play, and socialize with fellow vets.
If you’re looking for healthy exercise, excellent instruction, and a chance to reconnect with fellow vets, this is your place. All skill levels are welcome, please contact:
