Boylston, MA — The New England Section PGA of America is proud to announce that its first NEPGA Patriot Award has been given to Bob Beach, PGA Head Professional at Braintree Municipal Golf Course.
The Patriot Award is presented to a PGA Professional who personifies patriotism through the game of golf and demonstrates unwavering commitment and dedication to the men and women who have valiantly served and protected the United States of America.
Bob Beach has worked tirelessly with veterans through the many programs that he has created for them and their families. In 2011, Beach was one of the founders of GOLF FOR ALL. This association specializes in helping brave military personnel returning from active duty with their goal of giving the golfing experience to these veterans and thanking them for their service. Bob uses an adaptive golf cart that was attained when he received a PGA Growth of the Game Foundation Grant in 2005. This cart allows Bob and NEPGA Professional volunteers to help disabled veterans with golf instruction and also on course playing opportunities.
Beach continues to offer free clinics on a weekly basis at both indoor and outdoor facilities to veterans and their families.
Bob will receive this award at the NEPGA Annual Awards Dinner that is scheduled for Kernwood Country Club on Friday, October 26th.
