What is OPERATION: PlayDay?

This will be a monthly, 9-hole social playing opportunity for our Veterans to connect, compete and showcase our PGA HOPE New England program to those that may not be familiar with the initiative.

The goal, bring together golfers along with their non-golfing brothers or sisters from all branches of the armed forces that want to learn or play in a relaxed atmosphere, where the focus is camaraderie.

Who is eligible to participate in an OPERATION: PlayDay event?

During each event, up to approximately (36-44) players can register on a first come, first served basis. Given the success of our OPD series in 2023, we are now requiring at least one (1) PGA HOPE participant or graduate per twosome, or two (2) PGA HOPE participants or graduates per foursome.

A graduate or current PGA HOPE program participant may invite an active military service person or fellow Veteran who is NOT in the PGA HOPE program.

Players may also sign up as an individual, with the hope of being paired with another single player.

Is there a cost to play in an OPERATION: PlayDay event?

No. PGA REACH New England proudly creates and executes initiatives dedicated to giving back to the Veteran community. Our foundation will cover the cost of course fees as well as a lunch fee, additional purchases above and beyond those at the facility are at the cost of the player.

Players are asked to honor their commitment and registration into the event, given the limited number of spaces available. Cancellations must be relayed to Chad Eades ( or via text (781.715.7125), allowing another Veteran into the field from the waitlist.
