Clubs for Vets Program

Bob Beach, PGA developed the Clubs for Vets program to provide golf clubs and bags to the veterans who have served our country and put their lives on the line. If you are able to donate to this wonderful program, please contact Bob at 781-843-6513 or bbeach@braintreema.gov.

"Since my first lesson a year ago with Bob, and the countless hours he has spent with me working on my game, the improvements have been nothing short of amazing. He has worked on every aspect of my game and continue to get better practicing at Bob's Indoor Clinics. This season I will not just play and compete on the course, I am confident I can and will beat able bodied golfers. Thanks Bob."

~ SGT Mike Downing regarding Bob Beach (Mike lost both legs in Afghanistan)
