On May 10, 2011 Gateway PGA Professionals in conjunction with the Gateway PGA Foundation, started a junior golf program for the patients of Ranken Jordan. Since day 1 this program has been an incredible success story. The children have enjoyed weekly clinics conducted by PGA Professionals and have even spent afternoons on the driving range at Glen Echo Country Club! Throughout the winter months the children will continue to work on their golf games with weekly clinics in the indoor recreation area known as "Warner's Corner", named after Super Bowl quarterback Kurt Warner (First Things First Foundation).
