The SoCal Rehab Golf Program promotes golf for seniors and individuals who have a physical disability through the Back Nine Senior Golf Program, the Golf Club and the annual Golf Classic. The program is designed to increase golf skills, present adaptations, familiarize with community golf courses, build camaraderie, and create an opportunity to play in a recreational and competitive atmosphere. The Golf Program is led by a PGA Teaching professional and Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists.
The “Back Nine” Senior Golf is for individuals of all abilities who may be experiencing decreased balance and flexibility, loss of core strength, limited range of motion, or impaired fine and gross motor skills. Golf is a life-time sport that can be adapted to any ability level no matter the person’s age. This program includes instruction at golf clinics and an opportunity to play on the course. Participants will be encouraged to join the SoCal Rehab Golf Club as their physical abilities and golf skills improve. Clinics will be conducted by a PGA teaching professional experienced in working with older athletes and the physically challenged. Golfers will be assisted by recreational and physical therapists from Alvarado Hospital’s San Diego Rehabilitation Institute.
The SoCal Rehab Golf Club is for golfers whose play may be limited due to an illness or physical impairment yet enjoy the comradery and challenge of being out on the course. All golf skill levels are invited.
The SoCal Rehab Golf Classic is an annual 9-hole scramble golf tournament where three or more players form a team comprised of at least one individual with a physical challenge, with rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of keeping individual scores.
So come and join us in the SoCal Rehab Golf programs! Learn a love for golf, improve your physical fitness, form great friendships, and have fun!
A physician consent is required to participate. Participant is responsible for clinic fee and discounted greens fees.
