Announcing the CGA Hole-in-One Club
Join today to become a member of the CGA Hole-in-One Club for any ace recorded at Chestatee. Open to any CGA member and membership ($10.00) is voluntary. We currently have 50 golfers as of April so that would be a potential payout of $500.00. Each time a hole-in-one is paid, everyone re-antes another $10.00 towards the next hole-in-one.

The Georgia State Golf Association sponsors a wonderful program called GSGA Adaptive Golf. It is a program that many have heard of as “wounded warriors” but this program is for anyone who has a disability of any type. For more information, visit their newly designed GSGA Adaptive Golf webpage. But for now, they have a need that our organization might be able to help with. If you have some slightly used sets of clubs in your basement, the CGA will be collecting them and will get them to the proper people at the GSGA. Please keep in mind that a vet does not need a set of clubs that is so old that they will be embarrassed to use them. We want them to be proud of the clubs they take to the course.
Golf Clubs Needed: 'Sets for Vets' Donation Initiative!
The need for experienced "sets of clubs" (and sometimes various equipment - bags, accessories, golf shoes) to be re-purposed for participants in recovery who are new to the game is an on-going need. We prefer equipment within the last 10-year manufacturing window as technology changes so rapidly, however, there are exceptions so please don't hesitate to contact us, share pictures of your items, etc.
By the way, the most common problem that these vets are dealing with is PTSD. Seeing an amputee swing a golf club is inspiring, but establishing a relationship with someone who is struggling mentally creates an exchange of friendship that the vet might not otherwise enjoy. If you would like to volunteer, the Adaptive Golf Program is held at Achasta every third Thursday. Thank you for your consideration.
