GOLF December 19th, 2011

Playing golf is a favorite pastime for many, but it can also be played on the more competitive level with no adaptations to the rules just the equipment.

Golf can be played by many individuals with different disabilities. For the individuals who might be unable to grip the club, there are gloves that secure the club to your hand. Individuals can also play golf directly from their wheelchair, in which case shorter clubs are often an effective adaptation. Specially designed golf carts are another great way for individuals with spinal cord or lower extremity injuries to play golf from an upright position by raising and lowering the seat. The cart is all hand controlled and the tires do not have treads, so you can take them onto the green. For additional information about golf please check out the following websites:
