How We Got Started...
Adaptive recreational activities are growing in the country and in Durango. Our founder wanted to use the sport of golf as a way to inspire and help those with cognitive and physical disabilities to get out and exercise, build self-esteem and inspire those with disabilities to dream big. We hope you enjoy our story and will want to support our mission anyway you can.
Our Adaptive Golf Program started in 2012 as a small organization consisting of four participants. Through the years, we have continued to grow with the support of Hillcrest Golf Course and the Durango community. Currently we have 45 participants and as of the 2018 season we have taught over 300 lessons.
Meet our Founder Andy
Andy Asmuth is a Colorado native who has been part of the Durango area for the past 19 years. He is very passionate about helping people with disabilities and knows first hand what it's like to get through life while dealing with a disability, himself. He feels a unique connection to his students, which he attributes to his brain injury suffered due to a car accident at age 6. Andy is very active within the Durango community and participates in other activities including skiing, scuba diving, and swimming, along with actively running his adaptive golf program.
We Are Growing
In 2017, we taught 175 lessons over 17 weeks of programming. We had 34 participants whom we helped impact their lives, and the people around them, through the game of golf.
In the 2018 season, we had 45 golfers and taught over 300 lesson, doubling the amount of lessons from last year.
We are starting our third year as a 501(C) (3) making all donations given to the program tax deductible. 100% of donations received go right back into the program.
