Our annual golf event is a two-day experience. An instructional clinic is held on the first day in order to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to practice their golf game or learn for the first time. Clinic participants are taught to use adaptive golfing equipment and techniques in order to improve their success.  This clinic is provided at no cost to the community.

The event continues on the second day with an all day golf tournament. Individuals and local businesses are encouraged to participate. Each participating team consists of three able bodied golfers and one golfer with a disability. The tournament is captain’s choice and is concluded with great food and prizes. The tournament is also a fund raising event, with proceeds benefiting Aaron’s Fund and other Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital community outreach programs.
