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."
