The Caddy Shacks
We have worked with a group of adults with learning disabilities from a Newcastle Day Centre over the past 5 years.
Through Rookie Golf life skills and confidence have improved to enable the group to integrate into social situations that Day Centre Managers say would not have been possible without the programme. From managing their own money to taking part in the Mayors annual golf day their confidence, fitness and skills have grown and grown. For many of the group, Rookie Golf is now the only way to continue friendships that have lasted over 20 years.
Caddy Shack members now support our work as volunteer coaches.
