Back in 1989, Nan Wolbert, a registered nurse, sustained a severe head injury in an automobile accident. Looking for a recreational activity to improve her concentration and balance that she would also enjoy with her husband, she elected to give golf a try. In the process, Nan discovered that the experience offered a renewed sense of self-confidence in life. And the fun, friendship and improved self-esteem she found on the practice green carried over into her non golf-related activities. Due to her success with golf as therapy, Nan decided to offer lessons to others with disabilities! Hence, Golf 4 The Disabled was born!
Our clinics are made possible by the volunteers that love the game of golf and find enjoyment in teaching this great game to those with disabilities. Our volunteers are golfers at any level of play, but most importantly, they love the game and love to help others.
Donations allow us to offer the clinics to all ages and most all disabilities at a very nominal fee or scholarships to our students. They also allow us to purchase adaptive golf carts that are distributed around the Denver Metro Area Golf Courses, allowing people with disabilities to play the course with the aid of the adaptive golf cart.
