Golf Fore Health Finishes Spring Season

On June 26th, 2024 “Golf Fore Health” finished their Spring Session in anticipation of the Fall Session starting back up in September.

The sun was out, the participants showed up in record numbers as everyone was ready to play 9-holes of golf.

Ken Hurdle, Lead Coach came up with a great idea of at the end of each session he ends it with a “Hot Dog Scramble”. Each participant gets to bring one caregiver to help guide them through their round along with the volunteers.  After golf everyone goes into the MacKenzie Sports Bar & Grille to enjoy a hot dog as a group.  The laughter and friendship are truly the best part when you see everyone saying goodbye in hopes of seeing their golf partners soon. 

The participants enjoy the program so much that in-between sessions Coach Ken Hurdle organizes “Summer School”.  This is a way to practice your golf skills with volunteers and leaders every other Monday morning before the start of the next fall session.

This is a wonderful way to rehabilitate through the game of golf and not in a doctor’s office.

Please join in the fun, meet new friends, and improve your golf game.

Just contact the Northern CA Institute of Golf Desk inside the Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop or call (916) 808-2531 to find out more.

Hope to see you there!

Are you, or someone that you know interested in rehabilitating using the game of golf? Golf Fore Health is the answer!

This program consists of a spring and fall program that provides the participants the opportunity to improve their golfing skills while on their journey of recovery. These sessions consist of coaching sessions on Mondays and 9-hole play on Wednesdays. Each of these sessions concludes with a “Hot Dog Scramble” where the participants can have family, friends, or caretakers play nine holes of golf with them.

Due to the requests of the participants, a July/August “Summer School” was added last year on alternating Mondays to allow the golfers to continue to hone their skills and maintain their friendship during the “dog days” of July and August.

This program has been growing in leaps and bounds over the past few years and includes participants aged 16 through the “young” 80’s. Such growth has been made possible through the dynamic coaches and volunteers that work with the participants.

Golf Fore Health is another example of how the Morton Golf Foundation uses golf as a tool for enriching people’s lives.
