Charitable golf celebration honoring military Veterans
PEBBLE BEACH, CALIF. – In the spirit of gratitude, honor and paying it forward, PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), the flagship charitable program of the Northern California Section PGA Foundation, will host The Salute at Pebble Beach at the iconic Pebble Beach Resorts. The five-day celebration of independence, held June 30-July 3, 2023, will support United States military Veterans, while celebrating golf at its finest. This fundraising event will offer participants the chance to play Pebble Beach Golf Links the day before it closes for the 2023 U.S. Women’s Open and includes tickets to the championship event.
Jack Nicklaus states, on the impact of PGA HOPE, “Across the United States, brave men and women have answered the call. They have sacrificed. They have done their duty honorably. Now as they return home, it’s our duty to look after them.”
“Our Veterans are responsible for our country and individual freedoms. By utilizing the great game of golf, The Salute at Pebble Beach honors those Veterans, both active and retired from service through the only Department of Veterans Affairs approved rehabilitative program. We owe it to our veterans to give back and raise funds to help them return from service in the best way we know how – through the game of golf,” said Len Dumas, PGA, Chairman of the Board, NCPGA Foundation. “PGA Hope and The Salute at Pebble Beach fundraising initiative provides participants with an opportunity to be a part of U.S. Women’s Open history and support our nation’s heroes.”
The Salute at Pebble Beach Package is priced at $12,500 for one golfer and one guest for the festivities. It includes a five-day, four-night stay at The Inn at Spanish Bay and two one-day tickets (participant’s choice) to the 78th U.S. Women’s Open at Pebble Beach (Wednesday-Sunday). Alongside sports stars Nancy Lopez, LPGA World Golf Hall of Famer, and David Wells, 1998 Perfect Game thrower and 2x World Series champion, the five-day itinerary includes:
