in Sports by

After a year of training and teaching disabled players how to get back in the game, the Adaptive Golf program is hosting its first competition September 19 at The Legends of Parris Island Golf Course. Players with disabilities or challenges due to stroke, injury, TBI, neurological conditions or amputation will have the opportunity to put their skills to the test at the Adaptive Golf Challenge, being held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The fairway friendly event, sponsored by Beaufort Memorial and the Legends course, will include putting and chipping challenges, a long/straight drive competition and mini three-hole tournament.

Contestants will be divided into categories based on their ability and experience. Registration is $10 on the day of the tournament and will include lunch, admission to all of the challenges and the chance to win some great prizes.

To help players warm up for the contest, the event will start with a clinic from 9 to 10 a.m., followed by the skills challenges and three-hole tournament.
