Pulaski, NY – Summer is golf season, a time when people from Central New York take to the local links to spend a few hours driving balls and sinking putts. Many golfers look for opportunities to improve their game, so it is no surprise that the rain and heat could not keep people with disabilities away from the 5th annual three-day golf clinic hosted by ARISE on August 11, 12, and 14.
Seven participants between the ages of 8 and 48 learned golf stances and swings from Scott Hilton, Head Pro from The Elms in Sandy Creek on the Green. Some were trying golf for the first time, while others brought their own clubs and were looking to hone their golf game. Hilton gave the golfers individual attention, encouragement and pointers.
After two days at the Starlight Driving Range in Pulaski, the participants gathered at the Elms for additional instruction, socialization, and fun. All of the golfers with disabilities received trophies on the final day of the clinic.
ARISE thanks Scott Hilton for donating his time and LupienÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Gifts and Engraving for donating the trophies. To find out more information on the annual golf clinic, contact Kathy Mahar at ARISE in Pulaski at (315) 298-5726 ext. 04.
