Happy Valentine's Day - for Golf Lovers


Do you have a golf lover in your midst who has been unable to pursue his or her passion for the game due to a physical challenge? Well, here's some good news about a program that's right in our backyard in North Olmsted.

Known as, Return to Golf, (RTG) the program helps physically challenged adults and veterans restore independence and improve their overall quality of life using the game of golf as a recreational therapy.

Building on a club atmosphere, this not-for-profit program includes:
  • Clinics conducted year- round that include physical therapy done in conjunction with a local hospital-based rehab provider.
  • Weekly social gatherings that provide “Members” with an opportunity to participate in a series of golf Contests/Challenges while socializing with other RTG participants. ·       
  • Weekly open play sessions which allow participants to utilize an OptiShot simulator in a different fashion from the Challenges. The “Members” are able to play courses of their choice that are loaded up on the simulator. This is all provided in dedicated spaces.                                                                                                                I have had firsthand opportunities to talk with Members/participants, many of whom have been Members of the Club for several years.                                                                                                                    Here are some testimonials from the existing program both staff and members. “I enjoy the mental bond, the physical bond and the emotional bond. I’ve met some wonderful people here and I am able to do more now.” “It’s awesome and it’s unique. It gives people the opportunity to take the next step in their lives. It’s a stepping stone to getting people active again.”

It's a program that can make a difference! Call: 440.777.0220
