The Veterans’ Golf Program was established to support patients from Mather VA Hospital. The golf program, which is self-funded, is designed to give our veterans a place to connect, enhance self-esteem, develop relationships, and learn the game of golf. Mather Golf supports the program through their weekly donations of the range facility and occasional playing time.
This August 2018 the Veterans’ Golf Program(VGP) will be six years old. The VGP was started at the request of Mather VA Hospital Mental Health personnel. We began with six veterans and are currently pushing the 100 participant mark. The program is open to both male and female disabled, injured, or ill veterans.
At conception, the VGP was without financial resources. Through the generosity of many individuals and businesses, we’ve been able to provide equipment, transportation, and housing for needy veterans. We’ve even moved outside our program to assist other vets. We provide food, shelter, and transportation on many occasions. It is the consensus of the vets in the VGP that we give back whenever we can. This past holiday season we provided dinners, presents, and other support to needy vets and their families.
We do more than learn golf. We have a nurturing atmosphere in which to train, play, and socialize with fellow vets. ALL ability levels are welcome!
If you’re looking for healthy exercise, excellent instruction, and a chance to reconnect with fellow vets, this is your place.
