The PGA REACH Southern Ohio Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and philanthropic arm of the Southern Ohio PGA Section, one of the 41 sections in the PGA of America. Our members across Southern Ohio are committed to serving our communities and growing the game of golf through our three pillars- Youth, Military, and Diversity & Inclusion.
PGA Jr. League is a fun, social, and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls, ages 17 & under, to enjoy the game of golf. Like other recreational youth sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with friends. Our Southern Ohio PGA Professionals captain teams in a popular two-person scramble format which reinforces the team concept and creates a nurturing environment for learning the game of golf. More than 800 juniors across the Southern Ohio participate in this entry point to the game.

PGA HOPE Southern Ohio (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is an adaptive golf program offered by our PGA Professionals as a rehabilitation tool to improve our veterans’ quality of life by enhancing their mental, social, physical, and emotional well-being. There is NO COST to our veterans. With your support, we serve our veterans at three locations in Southern Ohio with an emphasis on helping those with physical and emotional disabilities that would most benefit from our initiative.
