The Inspiration For Our Program
The Veteran Golfers Association started as an idea amongst wounded veterans at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, DC. Several friends routinely got together to play golf courses around the area to encourage each other to not only improve their games, but to also heal through camaraderie and competition. After recovering from their injuries, these friends relocated around the country, and missed the opportunity to compete against one another regularly.
Realizing that other veterans might be in this same situation, these friends got together in 2014 to create the Veteran Golfers Association, the first golfing organization dedicating to promoting the game to all veterans and their family members.
The VGA is working tirelessly to create golfing programs that will keep veterans, their wives and children active in the game of golf for many years to come.
