Annual SoCal Rehab Golf Classic Raises Awareness About Adaptive Golf as Therapy

CLICK HERE: REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION

San Diego's only adaptive golf tournament will be held Sept. 25, 2014, at the Cottonwood Golf Club in El Cajon. Sponsored by the San Diego Rehabilitation Institute at Alvarado Hospital, this one-of-a-kind event pairs golfers with physical challenges with able-bodied players to increase awareness about golf as a therapeutic tool—especially for those who have survived a stroke, traumatic brain injury or amputation.

"The SoCal Rehab Golf Classic is a unique tournament to the San Diego Area," said Mary Williams, event co-chair and therapeutic recreation coordinator at Alvarado Hospital. "We promote restorative golf programs for golfers of all physical abilities."

The tournament provides an opportunity to play in a recreational and competitive event. It is a four-player scramble format. Teams will be comprised of at least two individuals with a physical challenge. Participants will play 9 holes on a regulation course. Golfers with physical challenges will have the option to play from designated forward tees.

"The San Diego Rehabilitation Institute at Alvarado Hospital can be proud of the high-caliber tournament that they orchestrate for adaptive golfers and their supporters in Southern California,” said John Klein, PGA Professional, who facilitates the annual event and adaptive golf clinics. "I encourage the community to come out and participate in this life-changing event."
