Northern Ohio Golf Association
Charities & Foundation
Double your gift when you donate to Return To Golf
The flagship program of the NOGA Charities & Foundation has been changing lives since 2002. Our mission is to restore physically challenged individuals to the greatest degree of independence possible by combining golf with rehabilitation-based fitness and conditioning, with the support of the Cleveland Clinic.
Participants have a broad range of physical disabilities and injury, including stroke survivors, amputation and arthritis.
Golfers with Disabilities
NOGA Charities & Foundation has been helping golfers with disabilities for many years by offering the use of the North Olmsted Golf Club to various local disabilities programs.
It's a common occurance to see groups from Youth Challenge, Cleveland Sight Center, Verterans Hospital and Hanson House using
the golf course. This opportunity allows their participants a chance to get back onto the course and enjoy the game of golf.
The Northern Ohio Golf Association Charities & Foundation is very proud of the outstanding programs it conducts. Our mission is to promote and preserve the game of golf through any avenue possible and to everyone who would like to participate.
We invite you to take a few moments to learn more about these worthwhile programs.
Ensuring the future of the game of golf begins with successful programs for junior golfers. Our goal is to make golf fun while promoting the importance of etiquette and sportsmanship.
During the summer, the North Olmsted Golf Club offers multiple programs for junior golfers of every age and skill level. These programs encourage juniors to learn the fundamentals of golf and hit the links with their friends and family.
NOGA Charities & Foundation has teamed up with the NOGCSA and The Ohio State University - ATI in a unique effort to learn more about maintaining golf course conditions in our unique northeast Ohio environment.
This joint venture has allowed for a series of research projects to be done over the past few years. These studies include
growing five types of bent grass to test their tolerances and divot/ball mark repair tests.
