“When learning how to walk you have to stand up once more than you fall down. This applies for both a small child and an adult. It holds true for learning how to walk, but in a transferred sense also for life itself. With a handicap it is an even steeper challenge. I have experienced that myself. For every physically handicapped person the Paramobile is an important and valuable tool that gives you a bit more freedom.” – Anthony Netto

The DVGA improves the quality of life for disabled veterans with physical

disabilities; 

we assist disabled veterans and their dependents, needy war veterans and their dependents, and widows and orphans of deceased veterans; provide entertainment, care and assistance to hospitalized veterans; provide assistance to military personnel and their families dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome; provide a facility for disabled veterans to play and practice golf; transportation to and from a facility to improve themselves both on the golf course and in their everyday lives.

The DVGA also assists in the development of rehabilitative and therapeutic golf-based programs in conjunction with any civic or government organization, hospital, medical center, community or support group that will assist in getting homeless veterans off the streets; and working to expand our disabled golf programs in more communities statewide so more children of disabled veterans can benefit from the great game of golf and what it offers.

 

 

AFTER SERVING OUR COUNTRY OUR HEROES SHOULD LIVE A FULL REWARDING LIFE, THEY DESERVE IT AND AT DVGA WE FIGHT FOR THAT CAUSE WE ARE COMMITTED.

 

The PGA of America has partnered with Disabled Sports USA and the Department of Defense to sponsor a program for severely wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. The PGA of America will coordinate a team of six PGA Professionals per city, who will become instructor wounded warriors at sites near the nation’s three primary military hospitals.
