WHO WE ARE
MISSION: Playing Through Adaptive Golf Institute, Inc. (Playing Through) has a mission to improve quality of life for individuals of all ages and abilities by making golf accessible at low cost for persons with disabilities, and by providing resources, skills, support & guidance necessary to foster a lifelong love of golf as recreation, therapy & rehabilitation.
We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization in south FL providing individual and group golf instruction for persons with physical, cognitive, communicative and developmental disabilities at very low to no cost. We understand that persons with disabilities may have the heavy burden of excessive medical bills, may be out of work, may be children, may be US veterans, or may be seniors. We strive to reach all members of the community and help them get back to what they love doing, or try golf for the first time.
WHAT WE DO
Conducted by certified adaptive golf instructors, therapists, and volunteers, our programs and services are designed so that individuals and families are able to enjoy the outdoors while engaging in a fun, social activity promoting physical, cognitive, and emotional wellness.
All programs are educational in purpose and offer participants, family members, and care-givers valuable research and information about the benefits of adaptive golf. We aim to engage community members and organizations, and to increase exposure and access to these programs.
Revenue from donations, grants, and fundraisers are returned to the community through the continuation of programs and the advancement of education regarding adaptive golf and its many benefits to people of all ages and abilities. In addition, our mobile education programs and services are designed to be inclusive of those in the community who may be under-served as well; thus, contributing to our charitable purposes.
WHY WE DO IT
Playing Through Adaptive Golf Institute, Inc. strives to help every participant meet and exceed their goals. Whether it is just getting out of the house every Tuesday to meet on the course, making par, rehabilitate from surgery, overcome an illness, learn to play, or just interact with a family member or a friend who has a disability, we will be there to support you and build upon every participant’s abilities to ensure your success.
