Mark Your Calendars for July 11th Golf Fore Health Summer School
Word is getting out about Golf Fore Health, a program based at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento and designed for those with physical, mental, or emotional challenges.
Golf Fore Health, which was previously known as Saving Strokes, is one of the adaptive golf programs hosted by the Northern California Institute of Golf at Haggin Oaks.
According to the program, “Participants come to Golf Fore Health with varying experiences, so whether you are a brand-new golfer or one who has been playing for years, there is space for you!”
Golf Fore Health Summer School at Haggin Oaks kicks off on Monday, July 11th at 10:00 a.m. at the Back of the Driving Range and will also be held on July 25th, Aug. 8th & Aug. 22nd.
Participants include those who have post-traumatic stress disorder or multiple sclerosis, or have had a stroke or heart attack. Four adaptive vehicles are available for participants to use.
The Northern California Institute of Golf provides an athlete-centered approach to improving a student’s game. Golf Coaches are trained to understand not only technical swing techniques but, perhaps more importantly, the human skills of golf. We build long-lasting, trustworthy relationships while having the student understand the most important aspects of the game and practice habits for effective results.
Our 2nd “Hot Dog Scramble” on June 29th was another HUGE success.
The Hot Dog Scramble teams up each participant with a family member, caregiver, or volunteer for a nine-hole scramble event. The goal is for participants to meet others going through the same physical challenges as they continue their rehabilitation and healing through golf. And best of all—at the end of the event, everyone gets hot dogs for lunch! The Hot Dog Scramble is scheduled for the last week of each session.
All golfers at all levels will enjoy this program because it is designed around the areas where individual golfers want to improve. Each class spends most of its time on the golf course. The program receives assistance from several volunteers. If you are interested in the Hot Dog Scramble visit Morton Golf Foundation.
