PGA Hope Classic

PGA HOPE Classic

Due the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic the 2020 PGA HOPE Classic has been canceled and will be played next May 2021.  This decision did not come lightly as our local veterans still need our help.  

 
Although we are unable to provide programming at this time, we are still finding ways virtually to connect with our veterans to ensure they are safe and healthy.  Ways we are connecting include:
  • Facebook Groups
  • Buddy Check-In Calls
  • Sharing video tips from our PGA Professionals who instruct the program 
  • And so much more
To learn more about how you continue to help our veterans outside of this event, click here.

Smiling Fore Life – Created in 2010 this a program encouraging SFPGA Professionals to visit local children’s hospitals weekly. These visits help bring golf into children’s lives who may be experiencing hardship, and allows children an opportunity to forget about their challenges and enjoy a fun and new activity. In addition to the great benefits
the program provides to the children it also affords SFPGA Professionals the opportunity to get more involved in the local community.

Both tours encompass an eleven-month season of tournament golf played on championship golf courses.

The Prep Tour features 1-day, 18 hole events for junior golfers with some prior playing experience. The Prep Tour encompasses a ten-month season from February to November.

Links Tour - For junior golfers ages 6-14 with beginning level golf experience and offers an introduction to tournament play through a 9-hole stroke play competition. Links Tour serves as a fun, social, less stressful approach to tournament golf, and provides junior golfers with knowledge and skills that set the stage for a lifetime of golf enjoyment.

Q: How are funds raised to support these programs?
A: The SFPGA Foundation annually conducts two Pro-Am’s to support Foundation activities throughout the year. These events serve as the Foundation’s primary fundraising activities thanks to the support of our corporate partners. Outside of golf events, funds are raised through public, corporate and member donations. The Foundation is extremely fortunate to have great friends in the community who believe in the mission and annually look to support our cause.

Q: How can you get involved?
