Please call us at the numbers listed above so we can reserve a spot for you. The Middle Atlantic Blind Golf Association is looking for blind or visually impaired children ages 5-21 who are interested in learning to play golf. We are near youth living in Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Delaware. We can also make this happen for those of you who live anywhere else in this country. We provide each player with a PGA teacher who will give lessons at a golf course near his/her house. We will also provide golf clubs, golf balls, and a golf bag. We can teach you how to play golf! Transportation to the lessons is not included.

We have two outings at the Overbrook School for the Blind, and 10 outings with the First Tee program at Walnut Lane Golf Course, Overbrook Golf Course, and FDR/Jay Sigel Learning Center. We provide all players with a coach and lunch. We have prizes, pizza and soft drinks. You will have fun, we promise you. All this is free.

Do not forget to call us to reserve a spot!
