Golf Program

STRIDE offers two seasonal multi-week golf programs centered on a curriculum for skill building. Each session in spring and fall teaches basic golf skills with adaptive techniques and equipment used for anyone with special needs. Program participation can lead to both independent and competitive play.

New this year, the instruction is provided on three holes of the course and golf range using buckets of balls for lots of practice. Family members are invited to stay during lessons and may assist other students. There is a maximum of 10 participants per session. Due to course and golf club restrictions, participants must be at least 8 years old and 3 feet tall.
