Clinic Programs



The foundation of SMGA program is in the golf clinics we offer, some of which focus specifically on warriors with PTSD. SMGA golf clinics are designed for wounded and injured servicemen and women who are in the midst of their recovery and transition from hospital to home-life or back to active duty.

Jim Estes, PGA, and co-founder of the SMGA, has developed an adaptive golf program that brings the game of golf to even the most severely injured. SMGA’s golf clinics form a true community, with each chapter or affiliate expressing their own unique personality and feel. SMGA clinics promote camaraderie among warriors and encourage family centered activities. On occasion, clinics extend beyond the mechanics of the golf swing to include related topics such as golf-specific exercise training, nutrition, and community service.

The SMGA clinic program is structured to challenge any golfer, whether beginner or single-digit handicap. The social interaction and networking opportunities that exist through the game of golf are unmatched in any other sport, and provide a vehicle for integration back into the civilian community.
