WHY THERAPEUTIC GOLF?
Therapeutic Golf provides instructional methods, strategies and perspectives intended to cultivate behaviors which are more conducive to long term mental health and well being. Therapeutic Golf is a culmination of over 25 years of experience playing the game and studying human behavior, both academically and professionally. With proper guidance and the desire for self improvement, golf can provide individuals with reliable methods for identifying strengths and weaknesses as well methods for improvement.
Through continued play and instruction, the game will create opportunities for the development and strengthening of more desirable behavior characteristics. Additionally, continued play will provide opportunities to better manage and regulate behaviors that are generally accepted to be less desirable or more harmful in nature. Therapeutic Golf seeks to provide its users with training methods and coping mechanisms to tackle life’s everyday obstacles more efficiently and with less effort.
“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.”
“There is only one good; knowledge. There is only one bad; ignorance.”
“Pride divides the men, Humility joins them.”
“The measure of
life is it's beauty
not it's length.”
“A soul is dyed the color
of it's thoughts.”
- Marcus Aurelius
Therapeutic Golf can be scaled to treat a variety of age groups with multiple needs. Our objective is to help individuals become the best version of themselves. Because we all have unique experiences with different perspectives and expectations, our goal is to develop a plan that capitalizes on an individual’s strengths while fortifying any areas of weakness.
As our primary objective, Therapeutic Golf is dedicated to instilling the values of Patience, Confidence, Self Control, Self Reliance, Self Discovery, Discipline, Managing Emotions and the ability to avoid worrying about items over which one has no control, like the last “Bad Shot.” Additionally, helping individuals develop methods for measuring their successes is key to analyzing their progress.
Have you ever found yourself making progress, only to find yourself 2 steps back? Have you ever struck a ball perfectly, only to gain a penalty stroke with the very next shot? It can be tough to keep your head up under those circumstances. It’s not uncommon for people to find themselves in a good position from time to time. However, it’s ironic that a relatively good position too frequently leads to complacency, lack of focus or a decline in performance. Remaining humble and hungry will go a long way to mitigating complacency on the golf course and in life.
