Iowa_Adaptive_golf_TEE_2010In 2007, the Iowa PGA formed a partnership with Riverside Casino and Golf Resort and Iowa City VA Health Care System to form the GIVE Foundation (Golf for Injured Veterans Everywhere).

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. The golf program is comprised of four phases of training for injured veterans to participate in to enhance injured veterans’ mental, social, physical, and emotional well-being; and improve their quality of life.

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.
