How It Started.
Clemson Life is a special college program that provides a positive college and learning environment for kids with intellectual disabilities. While teaching golf at Clemson University, I had the priviledge of having Clemson Life students in my Leisure Studies Golf Classes. The Clemson Life students changed my total approach to golf instruction to all levels of players. They were eager to learn a new sport and enjoyed being outside on the golf course learning a new skill with others.
I understand the game of golf can be intimidating, especially for beginners and I saw most of the Clemson Life students developed golf skills and found a new sport to enjoy outside socially. Some of the students had golf in their families, but others did not. The golf classes became a one and done program with no golf in their future sights. I saw a need to change that and vowed to teach not just the kids golf skills, but the family as a whole to enjoy an outside sporting activity that is challenging and fun.
The goal of Family Golf Life is to create opportunities for golf to become a outside family activity to spend quality time together.

It's not about the score.
It's about having fun outside with the family.

It's about learning something fun!
