CELEBRATING OUR STROKE COMMUNITY
GOLF-4-LIFE/Balancing Life After Stroke is for stroke survivors in ALL stages of recovery. A free golf clinic provides survivors with an opportunity to improve their strength and flexibility by adding golf to their rehabilitation activities. No previous golf experience is needed. One-on-one with a Professional Golf Instructor and adaptive equipment are provided.
In 2019, this event was made possible through collaboration with dedicated clinicians from El Camino Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital & Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and generous support from Los Lagos Golf Course & City of San Jose.
Testimonials: Golf-4-Life 2019
“In September 2019, I attended the PSA sponsored Golf-4-Life event, which gave me the confidence and motivation to continue aiming high in my recovery and it has paid off. I am driving (a car) again and working full time, all thanks to the help of my clinical care givers, my family and friends, and the PSA!” —Cindy
“Prior to Golf -4- Life, my golf experience involved windmills, dragons and castles with drawbridges. Not only did it give me a chance to learn something new and challenge myself, Golf-4-Life was also a place where I was able to meet other stroke survivors, reunite with survivor friends outside the confines of support groups. This event has become something I look forward to every year. ” –Bernadette
“My experience with the Golf-4-Life/Los Lagos Golf Course was it made me feel happy and strong, I went home feeling capable.“😁 — Cyndi
“ I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the golf event given that I last played golf 10 years ago; at that time I played golf right handed vs left handed!” — Marshall
“Before my experience with the Golf-4-Life event, it was over 20 years since I picked up a club. It was amazing to work with golf pros that taught me I could drive a golf ball 150 yards with one arm – never thought I could until I drove it down the fairway…I’m very grateful for events like this one.” ––Emmanuel
