What is Recovery Golf?
Recovery Golf aims to transform lives through participation in meaningful golfing activities tailored to individual needs and abilities.
We aim to promote the far-reaching benefits of sport and empower and support any individuals to overcome physical, emotional, social or psychological problems. We offer inclusive, accessible and safe environments and provide support networks where applicable to encourage everyone to develop a love of the game while working through personal difficulties.
Who is it for?
We want to empower individuals and help them overcome a wide range of problems, be it physical or mental. Recovery Golf is here to offer a secure and inclusive environment to be comfortable and grow.
This includes but is not limited to...
LIFE CHANGING EVENTS
Sometimes in life we can look back and pinpoint specific events or moments in which we knew life would never be the same. This may include bereavement, divorce, illness or injury for example.
ISOLATION & LONELINESS
There are times when we can all feel lonely or isolated. This can be for straightforward reasons like being away from home, losing friends and retirement or it can be more complex.
Golf is the perfect game for all and this includes those with disabilities. Modifications can be made to allow players with disabilities to play alongside other golfers both disabled or able-bodied.
MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS
This can refer to a wide range of conditions – Disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behaviour. We believe that golf can help to alleviate some key mental health issues through social interaction and physical activity.
HEALTH & LIFESTYLE
The modern life has made a lot of things easier in many respects, information, automation, computerisation. But it can come at a cost. We believe golf can help with some of these problems including weight management and addiction.
