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.

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 Michael Packard ( or via text (860.593.3338), allowing another Veteran into the field from the waitlist.
