Default Golf Lessons for disabled golfer

Is anyone familiar with a golf instructor locally who has worked with disabled golfers? I have balance issues with walking, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Try calling Sarasota pro shop, they have lessons there all the time and I am sure will be able to help.

They are part of the Villages Golf Academy? I called them and they told me that any/all of their instructors can work with me which doesn’t sound right to me. It seems they do not have an instructor who is more experienced.

I would suggest call Rick Cicero at Pin High Futures, Pin High'''s Future - Callaway, Taylor Made, Miura, KZG, Wishon - Ocala, Florida.

Rick is a disabled Afghanistan conflict vet, took over clubfitting business from his dad who was a top 100 clubfitter for years and Rick specializes in fitting disabled. I don’t think Rick gives lessons, but could no doubt point you to someone who does. First class family business. His phone is 434 294 5883

Default wade martin

I have to admit that I'm a big advocate of the villages golf academy. Saying that I asked the head of the academy if they had someone who had been trained in handicapped golf instruction. His response was/is Wade Martin who has had training in the field. I'm sure that there are others, but Wade seems able to teach the fundamentals very well.(352) 259-8121
