For too long, individuals with disabilities have been shut out from the game of golf. This has happened for several reasons. One has been the lack of associations, groups and advocacy by groups for adaptive golf. Another is the lack of properly adapted golf equipment. Golf professionals haven’t had access to the necessary training, tools or club components to actually "fit" clubs to the individual golfer with a disability.
Access North, a Minnesota based Center for Independent Living, has lent Freedom Resource Center adaptive golf clubs for individuals to experience until June 9, in our Fargo office.
From June 10 – September 8, Freedom Resource Center (Fargo office) will have a hand pedal recumbent bicycle available for individuals to try.
