East Amherst, NY – We are excited to announce that Verde Golf has become a NEW partner of our PGA REACH WNY Foundation and our PGA HOPE WNY Program! Verde golf  is a local golf apparel company that was created with the intention to make golf FUN for all.

“For me golf is about celebrating each other regardless of our differences, wanting to see a complete stranger succeed, and having good wholesome fun with people who are different from you.”
– Alex Villafranca, Verde Golf Founder

We are excited what this new relationship with the Section and Verde Golf can bring in regard to unique custom shirts for PGA Facility Membership and Member-Guest Tournaments.

To kick off the new partnership, Verde golf is helping to celebrate our Veterans while at the same time giving back to our PGA Professionals who continue to give their time to PGA REACH WNY. By purchasing a Verde Golf shirt, you can purchase a shirt for a PGA HOPE Veteran as well – hence Buy HOPE, Give HOPE. A portion of every shirt purchased through our PGA Professional shops will go back to our PGA HOPE program to purchase graduation shirts to celebrate our 2021 PGA HOPE Programs in Buffalo, Erie and Rochester.

The limited-edition shirts will be sold at select shops across the Western NY PGA Section in which PGA Professionals have participated in our PGA HOPE Programs:

  • Fox Valley Country Club
  • Glen Oak Golf Course
  • Niagara Frontier Golf Club
  • Penfield Country Club
  • Shorewood Country Club
  • More to come!
