Military Veterans Golf
Salute Military Golf Association (SMGA) current and new members are welcome to join in at Marina Bay Sportsplex for In-Door Driving Range and Golf Simulator use.
A Game With The Power To Heal Our Injured Veterans.
More than 10,000 New England military service members have served in Iraq & Afghanistan since 2003; of these countless numbers have returned home with wounds including Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain injuries.
The Salute Military Golf Association Boston Chapter, a 501C 3 non-profit volunteer organization(65-1296873) was formed in March 2013 in an effort to bring the game of golf to our New England post 9/11 injured veterans as a form of mental and physical rehabilitation. Golf has proven to be a forceful tool in their recovery process.
With the cooperation of NEPGA professional instructors and local golf courses we are able to provide group golf clinics, individual instruction, military appreciation golfing events, on course playing opportunities, customized golf club fitting for physically and psychologically wounded veterans and experienced golf clubs for our able bodied veterans. SMGA Boston/Rhode Island chapter owns 3 ParaGolfer machines so veterans who have lost their lower limbs or who are partially Paralyzed can enjoy the game of golf.
Marina Bay Sportsplex is the new Winter Golf Home for SMGA Boston.
Todd Cook PGA will be providing instructions for SMGA Boston Veterans and we are looking at booking the simulators for Thursday Veterans Night out. Women Veterans from the Home Base Program will be participating in SMGA sponsored golf clinics every other Monday nights starting on January 11th. The range and golf simulators and a Para Golfer mobility cart for Post 9-11 Wounded veterans who are partially paralyzed, have balance issues and or have lost the use of their lower limbs will be available at Marina Bay Sportsplex all winter.
Please call Marina Bay Sportsplex 617-479-8700 one (1) day in advance to reserve the Para Golfer.
SMGA Boston welcomes sponsors to help with funding for this program.
