Upstate golf club holds clinics to teach children with disabilities how to play golf


GREER, S.C. (WSPA) – The Ernie Els for Autism #GameON program will be coming to Greenville this Spring.

Upstate Adaptive Golf and First Tee Upstate partnered up to start the program which will provide golf lessons for children ranging in ages 7-17. The #GameON curriculum will be directed towards helping children overcome challenges and to improve their quality of life.

Equipment will be provided at the clinics, along with instruction and adaptive tools, according to organizers.

There are still spots open for the Feb. 8 clinic, but the programs are in need of coaches to help train children with disabilities.

There will be $10 clinics for children with disabilities and their siblings on March 28, April 25 and May 21. There will be a special rate of $25 for all three classes. The clinics will be held at Legacy Pines, Willow Creek, and Botany Woods.

The eight-week summer series will start in June.
