Denver, CO, Nov. 1, 2021 -- GOLFTEC, the world leader in golf improvement and club fitting, is proud to announce their new DRIVE FOR HOPE campaign, supporting PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), a program that introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. GOLFTEC will make a $1 donation to PGA HOPE for every lesson given, combined with generous public donations, during the month of November. The goal is to raise over $100,000 through lessons and donations.
“We couldn’t be more excited about the DRIVE FOR HOPE campaign,” said GOLFTEC CEO, Joe Assell. “Our military and Veterans are heroes to every community. We are proud to be supporting PGA HOPE and to make a difference with every lesson we give.”
The DRIVE FOR HOPE campaign comes on the heels of the recent PGA HOPE National Golf and Wellness Week at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland that took place last month. GOLFTEC sent team members to participate in the four-day program which provided advanced golf instruction and wellness training, helping Veterans assimilate back into their communities through the social interaction the game provides.
GOLFTEC’s DRIVE FOR HOPE campaign is part of GOLFTEC Cares, a charitable initiative with a mission to unite communities through golf and drive the game towards greater accessibility, diversity and long-lasting charitable impact. With over $2 million in charitable giving in 2020, GOLFTEC is aiming for an even greater impact through 2021 and beyond.
In addition to the DRIVE FOR HOPE campaign, GOLFTEC is always proud to support all military personnel by offering a 10 percent discount on GOLFTEC lessons, through the GOLFTEC Military Program.
Since 1995, GOLFTEC’s mission has remained the same—to help people play better golf. The GOLFTEC experience offers a place where golfers of all ages and ability levels can work with an expert in golf instruction to build a game improvement plan customized to their specific needs and goals. The use of technology, including new OptiMotion, gives our students and coaches instant and data-driven feedback, to help people find their golfing potential. With millions of lessons given and more than 200 locations across the world, GOLFTEC is the world leader in golf instruction.
