Our 90th Annual Fall Meeting was held yesterday at Mohegan Sun!

Thank you to special guests, PGA of America President John Lindert, Chief Membership Officer John Easterbrook and District 1 Director Larry Kelley for attending!

Great conversation was conducted through their panel as we take on plans for 2024.

We’d like to recognize that this was Executive Director Tom Hantke’s last Fall Meeting serving in his current role. During his 30 years, Tom’s innovation and leadership helped guide the section into a position of strength and stability. Thank you Tom, we are all forever grateful for your impact! It was also announced that Tom will be inducted into the Connecticut PGA Hall of Fame in 2024!

Thank you to our outgoing Board of Directors, Brian Phelps and Brian Keiser for your service!

We welcome new Directors, Peter Seaman and Joe Mentz to the Board!

Congratulations to Nick Rykoski, for winning the President’s Award for your significant support to the Foundation through your fundraising!

Happy Veterans Day!

We had 6 graduating classes of Veterans for PGA HOPE Connecticut this year!

It is truly an honor to meet every Veteran, hear their stories, sacrifices, see their camaraderie, joy and so much more.

Saying thank you will never feel like enough but we are forever grateful for every Veteran, every day.

It was great! Met a lot of good guys and def improved my game 🏌

A powerful message from our PGA HOPE Connecticut Ambassador, Michael Slater and many Veterans who joined Michael in DC a few weeks ago.

We are so happy that PGA HOPE has meant so much to all of them. We can’t thank them enough for how much their sacrifice and service has meant to all of us!

Last week we did a make up event for the originally rained out Northeast HOPE Invitational. While team CT didn’t take home the win, we had an awesome time getting together with each section and enjoying a great day of golf!

Congratulations to team New England, thank you to everyone who helped organize this, all the veterans for coming out to play and to Tatnuck Country Club for hosting us again!
