Success Stories

and a bit of history ...


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!
