Gateway PGA HOPE Graduates

Upon successfully completing a 6 to 8-week PGA HOPE program, veterans become “PGA HOPE Graduates”. A PGA HOPE Program is deemed successfully completed by attending of at least 65% of the program’s scheduled golf clinics. (Please note that the Gateway PGA REACH Foundation reserves the right to adjust the requirement limit based on inclement weather.) Veteran attendance is tracked throughout each program by Gateway PGA staff and/or the VA staff.

At the conclusion of each Gateway PGA HOPE program, there is a graduation ceremony to award & celebrate the veterans graduating from the program. During the graduation ceremony, the new graduates receive a graduation certificate  and a PGA HOPE Graduate Card.
