Adaptive golf comes to Aiken

AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

The Walton Foundation for Independence is partnering with First Tee of Aiken to launch Aiken's first adaptive golf program for people with disabilities.

The clinic will bring together able-bodied players with those who have acquired disabilities.

"Anyone with a disability, that's a physical disability usually, although we do have some blind folks that come out to our clinics, can come," said Vicki Greene, the Walton Foundation's Vice President of Development. "We can teach them how to play or if they've played in the past and want to learn how to play with some adaptive assistance, we can help them with that also. The point is to get them back into an active lifestyle and back on the golf course if they choose to do that."

The Aiken Adaptive Golf Clinic begins July 15th but will be held on every third Tuesday between the months of March to October. It will be held at the First Tee of Aiken at 901 Houndslake Rd.
