ADAPTIVE GOLF ACADEMY

"Live Beyond Your Expectations"

​​​Coaches instill confidence and optimism which is key to accelerating recovery for those overcoming injuries. 

Your support, encouraging others through adaptive golf, helps them find their way back to the fairways of life!

Why learn to teach Adaptive Golf?

  • Approximately 57 million people in the U.S. live with a disability (that's 1 in every 5 persons).
  • Every 40 seconds someone in the U.S. has a stroke, the leading cause of serious, long-term disability.  
  • Approximately 4 million Military Veterans have a service-connected disability rating.  
  • Approximately 30 out of every 100 Vietnam Veteran and 460,000 Afghanistan / Iraq war veterans will be diagnosed for PTSD; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and it isn’t exclusive to the military, about 8 million adults have PTSD during a given year (ptsd.va.gov).


​Adaptive golf applications have become regarded by therapists and doctors as a key rehabilitation and therapeutic outlet to enhance physical, sensory, social and emotional well-being, the critical components in the recovery process.

You could be the catalyst to help so many in your community by hosting an AGA Coach Training Workshop.

As one Veteran states, "Golf for me is nearly a religious event. Some people find peace in a building on Sunday, but for me golf brings inner harmony that I cannot replicate. The skills needed are the perfect tools to help a recovering veteran, patience, perseverance, focus, adapting to new environments, staying professional in all conditions, the tempo, self-control.. It's all there and then some. Golf empowers my social and communication skills, encourages new friendships and is an effective and measurable way for me to hone my skills and enhance my abilities. I've met people that I will stay friends with for the rest of my life because of a single round of golf. I can't say the same about a spin class at the local YMCA. Golf has power, power to build friendships, create teams, find champions and most importantly, get me out of the house for a few hours with some good buddies."

PGA / LPGA Golf Professionals, Teachers/Golf Coaches, Physical, Occupational, and Recreational Therapists and Clinicians from Veterans/civilian hospitals across the country have attended our Coach Training Workshops to become trained coaches and be a part of their community adaptive golf programs.


Adaptive golf truly is for ANYONE, regardless of age, gender, race, ability, or level of experience and/or challenge.  From the ever-so-common "bad back" and/or arthritic issues in aging golfers to much more major circumstances such as loss of limb, joint replacement, traumatic brain / spine injuries, vision loss and more, we aim to help individuals find their way back onto the course. Our approach is to properly evaluate the student and apply their abilities along with any adaptations needed in technique, equipment and/or training aids in a safe, effective manner to reach their potential.​​
