Welcome to the Adaptive Golf Academy
Since 2006, the Adaptive Golf Academy™ has been centered around providing education, training and consulting to Golf Professionals, Therapists, organizations and caring individuals desiring to become a coach to provide safe and effective lessons to anyone with a physical, cognitive and/or sensory impairment. The Adaptive Golf Academy Coach Training Workshop© is our educational platform merging both the demands of golf and of rehabilitation therapy, where Golf Professionals will better understand therapy modalities and Physical, Occupational and Recreation Therapists will better understand the principles of golf as we share knowledge and experiences in working with a full array of adaptive needs individuals. Trained Coaches find they attain a new level of comfort and confidence to help anyone of any ability learn or re-learn the game with proper adaptations. Our goal is to train as many coaches as possible across the country to meet the demand of individuals looking to get back to the game or utilize golf as part of their therapy and recovery. Collaborating with local rehabilitation hospitals, therapy centers, service organizations and support groups has been key to developing recurring community clinics.
Founded by PGA Professional David Windsor and his team of highly experienced Golf Professional Coaches and Therapists, the Adaptive Golf Academy™ through it's Coach Training program, delivers the most relevant, comprehensive training to empower new coaches via PGA Sections, Allied-State Golf Associations and local service organization groups looking to enhance lives through the game in their community.
Join us in reaching into the 57 million people in the U.S. with a disability (that's 1 in every 5 persons) by offering them a rehabilitative outlet through golf! Learn more about our Adaptive Golf Coach Training Workshop© bringing both Golf & Therapy Professionals together to share best practices in working with adaptive needs persons (Juniors, Adults, our Veterans) and how to conduct adaptive golf lessons and clinics with continuity, safety and effectiveness.
