GOLF 4 THE DISABLED

Golf 4 The Disabled is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the Denver Metro area with the mission of improving the lives of people with disabilities through the game of Adaptive golf. We are entering our 30th year of providing golf activity for the disabled community, including veterans, PTSD, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, neurological conditions, amputees and others. Our volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of business professionals, health care professional’s, educators, and a disabled veteran. Each year, we offer student lessons, a student tournament and a fundraising golf tournament. Our lessons are taught by a local golf pro to enable individuals with both new and long term disabling conditions to learn basic golf fundamentals, adaptive techniques, social skills and establish new friendships and confidence. Many of our students are discovering the benefits of golf for the first time. Others are eager to return to playing golf after disease, injury or illness.

 

In the past year, we have worked diligently to increase our veteran participation. As we all know, our disabled veteran population has an immense need for quality programs. We already have several veterans who are eagerly anticipating our 2019 lesson.
