Join these great athletes, who attended University of Arizona, in advancing Adaptive Athletics and our newest sport, Adaptive Golf, the first Adaptive Golf program in collegiate sports. Make sure you watch each video in this piece, as they will give you a tremendous insight into some of the great things happening at UArizona....
- We will host a 54 hole pan disability open championship (preceded by the TIU Spring Shootout) which will showcase many of the top ranked amputee, wheelchair, vision impaired, and single limb golfers in the world.
- We are actively seeking local and national financial partners and sponsors to assist in the underwriting of the tournament, with proceeds from the tournament going to local youth/adaptive golf programs, select adaptive veterans golf programs, and Native American youth golf programs in the state of Arizona.
- We will provide the adaptive golfers with golf and amenities at a level not unlike a PGA event, with the help of our friends at Visit Tucson and others crucial community members. This would not only have the potential of being a major tournament in adaptive golf, but an event of which Tucson can be proud.
