PGA REACH New England, the 501c(3) non-profit charity of the New England Section, is proud to announce the next new initiative for our Military Pillar. A series of playing opportunities for PGA HOPE New England graduates or current participants during the 2021 golf season.


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 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.

How do you register for aOPERATION: PlayDay event?

Online registration is required, capturing some basic player information.

Event #1 (July 23rd at Mt. Pleasant Golf Club) – CLOSED

Event #2 (September 16th at Waterville Country Club) – CLOSED

Event #3 (October 13th, at Kirkbrae Country Club) – CLOSED

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

During each event, eight (8) teams of two will be available on a first come, first served basis. Each team of two must have one (1) PGA HOPE graduate or current PGA HOPE program participant.

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.
