Unsurprisingly, enterprising individuals have found creative ways to enjoy the ‘greatest game ever played,’ regardless of disability. Golf is one of a select few sports that involve no rule modifications for its adaptive counterpart, and the handicap system lends itself well to diverse participation. The main adaptive component, a golf chair/cart, can be very expensive, but is becoming increasingly available at courses around the US.
While not the most complex piece of adaptive kit, mobility carts may be the most available solution for a subset of golfers. If your swing requires minimal external stabilization and support, these could be a perfect option.
Adaptive Golf Carts
These souped up golf carts not only allow the access of a powered chair, but also help a golfer get into swing position, and can be equipped with chest straps for trunk support.
Check out the equipment options available. Each one varies based on level of injury, but there’s something for everyone. Try a few different styles, and decide which is best for you.
