Don’t let a disability, or the weather, keep you off the golf course

1 min read

It was it cold last Saturday, Nov. 8, but that didn’t stop 13 dedicated Adaptive Golf participants who braved the “polar vortex” at the Legends of Parris Island. In spite of the 37-degree morning, the PGA instructors had a lot of activities for the participants, and temperatures did get into the 50s by the time they finished 18 holes.

Beaufort Memorial Hospital and the Legends at Parris Island host the free event on the third Saturday of each month to introduce individuals with physical disabilities to techniques and equipment they can use to enjoy the game of golf and the therapeutic benefits it offers.

The next Adaptive Golf event will be held Dec. 20 from 9 to 11 a.m. For more information or to register, contact either physical therapist Steve Giammona at 843-522-5850 or Sgiammona@bmhsc.org, or PGA professional Andy Hinson at 843-228-2240 or hinsonca@usmc-mccs.org.
