New Program for Veterans

Posted by:

Playing Through is proud to partner with the Adaptive Golf Association and the Broward County VA
to provide the The Adaptive Golf Down Range Program (AGDP) – an 8-week program designed to
introduce golf to Veterans with disabilities in the effort to enhance a Veteran’s mental, social,
physical and emotional well-being. The Adaptive Golf Association was recently awarded a grant from
the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC to expand adaptive golf programming to 8 different
VA facilities throughout the United States including Miami, Broward, West Palm Beach, Orlando,
St. Petersburg, Lake City, FL to Atlanta, GA and New Orleans, LA. Playing Through’s AGDP will last
January to March, 2015 and is held on Sundays at Weston Hills Country Club, Weston, FL. We have a great
group of veterans, golf instructors and coaches, and dedicated volunteers including
Nova Southeastern University – Occupational Therapy students. Check back soon for more news and photos from this exciting program!
