Highlights from “Learn To Golf Program” at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital

Participation
We had over 500 girls and boys ages 4-21 participate in the program for 2013
Since we began our program on May 10, 2011 we have had over 1,900 kids participate in our program.

Success stories 
We actually took several participants out to Crystal Springs Golf Course to play a few rounds of golf and use the driving range.
Several participants were set up with golf professionals in their hometown or nearby.
In May of 2013 we had the PGA Officers visit during an afternoon session of our golf program

1987 U.S. Open champion Scott Simpson visited our golf program

Parents/Caregivers’ Comments
“I never thought that I would be able to golf with my son”.

“We are most grateful for the recreational therapists for setting up the private golf lessons with a PGA professional. Golf is such an answer to prayer for our son right now who loves sports and is unable to play any sports that would risk a fall.

“Cooper is already counting the days until Saturday, because Saturday is golf day at Ranken Jordan,” his mom says. She is looking forward to the beginning of 2014, when Cooper is expected to be out of his wheelchair. Then he'll be able to enjoy golf on a whole new level.

“Golf is a great sport for him because he wouldn't have to do a lot of walking,' she says.  “I think this is going to be Cooper's sport.”

“It helped me do things I didn’t think I could do”

“Playing Golf was a time I could do something to turn a bad day into a good day.”

“It helped me communicate with people and get to know them much better who I otherwise would not have known.”
