The GIVE Foundation is a not-for-profit organization to provide a structured golf program for injured Iowa Veterans who use the Iowa City VA Health Care System and VA Central Iowa Health Care System.

Phase I: Introduction of Golf (rules, equipment, dress, scoring, etiquette, etc.)
Phase II: Indoor instruction at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort
Phase III: Practice outdoors at Blue Top Ridge
Phase IV: Golf at Blue Top Ridge, possible competition
The Iowa PGA Foundation will continue to support initiatives like the GIVE Foundation along with other organizations that support injured veterans.
