Learn to Golf Clinic

The National Amputee Golf Association (NAGA) First Swing and Learn to Golf Clinic returns for a 38th annual event on July 29, 2024, providing golf instruction to people with disabilities.

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation is a sponsor, and our experienced therapists participate in the clinic annually. The Learn to Golf clinic is free for individuals with disabilities to learn the basics of golf.

Additionally, the First Swing Seminar for therapists and golf pros is $25; this classroom discussion teaches therapists and golf professionals how to instruct people in adaptive golf techniques.

If you have always wanted to take a swing at the game of golf, join other therapists and individuals with disabilities from the community at the Learn to Golf Clinic. This hands-on clinic will:

  • Introduce and review basic golf techniques to improve functional skills, such as range of motion and balance.
  • Provide an opportunity to experience the SoloRider Golf Cart with a swivel seat. This technology allows people with disabilities access to golf from a sitting or standing position with support from the cart.
  • Introduce special equipment, such as adaptive golf clubs and accessories.

Bring your golf clubs and join us for a day of instruction and fun. A complimentary lunch is provided.

Registration is required. Contact Katrina Pidstawski (610.242.0860) for more information or fill out the registration forms linked below.
