Adaptive Golfers


​Join us in reaching into the 57 million people in the U.S. with a disability (that's 1 in every 5 persons) and offering them a rehabilitative outlet, by beginning with an Adaptive Golf Academy Coach Training Workshop ©™ bringing Golf and Therapy Professionals together to share best practices on working with adaptive needs persons (Juniors, Adults, our Veterans) and how to apply adaptive golf lessons and programs with continuity, safety and effectiveness. ​


PGA Teaching Professional David Windsor, Adaptive Golf Academy Founder/Director, has been teaching adaptive golf lessons and conducting clinics "every week" for 18 years. David was first introduced to the "Adaptive Golf" concept in 1999 by Paul Goodlander, a Physical Therapist (trained by Adaptive Golf Association founder, Sonny Ackerman in 1997) who was utilizing golf as a rehabilitative tool with his clients; Stroke survivors, brain and spinal cord injured and others with physical/sensory issues in their recovery at a local golf course in Sarasota, FL. "It didn't take very long to see that there was much more happening than just some golf lessons," states David Windsor. After 6 years of weekly clinics and individual lessons, gaining extensive knowledge and documenting experiences, the Adaptive Golf Academy was created as the education platform to train coaches to serve individuals through the game.

Juniors, adults, disabled Veterans, injured Military members and families have all benefited greatly. The Adaptive Golf Academy has become the coach training entity for the Adaptive Golf Association, PGA of America's HOPE "Helping Our Patriots Everywhere" program, the United States Adaptive Golf Alliance, as well as others across the country.​

Veterans involved with adaptive golf programs have experienced it to be a very healthy outlet in their recovery both physically and mentally, promoting fellowship and relationships on the links!
