Founder’s Message


“Having suffered traumatic injuries in a car accident when I was 6 years old, and subsequently spending years in physical rehabilitation to regain my own personal independence… I developed a strong passion to help other disabled people explore their own goals

My passion is to offer a fun sporting activity and give our golfers the opportunity to exceed their own limitations and exceptions… To us golf as a means to develop social interactions, life skills and independence for everyday life.”

Our Solo Rider Golf Cart Changes the Game…


“I was medically retried from the Navy with 100% disability due to severe brain atrophy. This disorder has left me unable to walk or stand without major support.

I was an F-18 Fighter Pilot and was used to functioning at a high level. I also was on my college golf team and performed extremely well. Since being overcome with this conditions, I was looking for outdoor activities that could provide exercise and revitalize my interest in sports — especially golf.

When I learned of the Adaptive Golf Program at Hillcrest, I immediately went to check out their new adaptive Solo Rider golf cart. I was very pleased to discover that I could use the cart to golf even with my condition. It opened up a whole new world for me as I’m now able to get outdoors and participate in a sport I love. I’m extremely grate fun to Andy and all the staff at Hillcrest for providing me this wonderful opportunity.”
