HealthSouth Valley of the Sun To Host Golf Clinic For People With Disabilities


HealthSouth Valley of the Sun Rehabilitation Hospital will host its 8th Annual First Swing Golf Clinic for people with disabilities on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Sun City Country Club. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m.

The class, led by professional golf instructor Peter Longo, is designed to teach and encourage people with disabilities to learn or re-learn the game of golf and is open to people of all ages who have experienced physical challenges related to conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury and amputation.

“Whether a person is learning how to play golf for the first time or getting back in the game, golfing is a great therapeutic activity that helps with skills such as balance, sequencing, fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and concentration,” says Lonnie Coughran, physical therapist assistant and golf clinic coordinator for HealthSouth Valley of the Sun. “In addition, it’s also good for emotional and mental well-being to be outside doing something you love.”

There is no cost to participate, but to reserve your spot, call 623-334-5470. Other questions about the First Swing Golf Clinic may be directed to Lonnie at 623-334-5358.
