GOLF IS A SPORT FOR ALL
Just Golf – A golf programme designed specifically for people on the autistic spectrum and / or people with developmental delays or similar difficulties. Golf is a sport that can be enjoyed by all when learnt or experienced in the right environment.
Just Golf for Autism covers many aspects of the game, from hitting a ball on the driving range to playing on the course. Sessions are delivered in small groups to help facilitate social interaction and an easy learning environment.
For some on the autism spectrum, any group work can be difficult and lessons are also offered on an individual basis.
With experience in parenting children on the autism spectrum and with other difficulties, Julie provides a relaxed atmosphere to these sessions with empathy and understanding.
Sessions are aimed at adults and children from the age of 12+.
