What they are saying...
Steve Mona, Past President, CEO World Golf Foundation – The PowerGolf club provides a path to golf for many golfers who have experienced a life altering occurrence, and now find themselves without the capability to play golf. I am pleased to see the innovation in the PowerGolf club which has enabled many to enjoy golf in the US and around the world.
Dennis Walters – Member, World Golf Hall of Fame – When I first heard of the PowerGolf club I have to admit, as a traditionalist, I was quite skeptical. However, after trying it, and learning of their mission statement of enabling those with a disability to have a, “Golf Experience”, I’m all for that. Now, even those with the severest disabilities can experience the joy golf can bring to one’s life. That my friends is something so special.
Tom Freestone, PGA Golf Professional, Makai Golf Club – “We have had many success stories with PowerGolf, including helping those physically challenged, providing an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the golfing experience making our golf facility inclusive for everyone”.
Don DeLorenzo – Manager Gilroy and Gavilan golf courses - “The PowerGolf club is an effective way we have found to offer golfing to players physically unable to enjoy our courses”.
Jeff Piserchio, PGA Class A, Blackberry Farm GC – “I applaud your efforts in creating this technology that has helped so many continue to enjoy golfing and we welcome PowerGolf at Blackberry Farm GC”.
Don Rea, PGA National Executive Committee Member and owner Augusta Ranch GC - “By placing the PowerGolf club in a person’s hands, we place them back in the foursome where they want to be. Golf is more than a game. Golf brings people together. The PowerGolf club can change a person’s life. We have seen it happen.
Chris White, Owner Fenton Farms - “If one of our golfers, 100 year old Annie VanLeuven can use the PowerGolf club, anyone can”.
Tim Finnell, PowerGolf customer - Hit balls yesterday and played today at TPC Southwind – home of The World Golf Championship next year. It was a blast! Great to get out after 3 years of not being able to play due to injuries.
Gordon Sheepbouwer, PowerGolf customer, My Son tagged me on Facebook with your add. He said Dad you should look at this maybe we could play golf again, three weeks ago I tore my bicep tendon off my right shoulder. I have had two previous Rotator repairs, don’t think they can repair it again, so if anybody needs this club it would be me, I just love golf thanks to PowerGolf for making this club. HAPPY GOLFER Gordon Scheepbouwer.
David Shaffer, Golfer - I think PowerGolf is a great concept and is perfectly suited for golfers who are physically limited. As we always discussed, any day on the golf course is a good day and it allows a golfer who otherwise could not play golf to play golf and get back on the course with friends and family. Participate and enjoy the game. What could be better than that.
Sandy Baer, PowerGolf customer – I was an avid golfer for many years but then developed wrist issues and was in severe pain when I played golf and was forced to quit the game. I learned of the PowerGolf club and ordered it and now happily back enjoying the game again.
Calvin Casey, PowerGolf customer - I’m 27 and have Cerebral Palsy. After receiving my PowerGolf club I was able to play golf for the first time ever. That’s a feeling that’s really hard to describe. Thank you PowerGolf, you’ve opened the door for me with your amazing club.
Michael Matanky, PowerGolf customer - The PowerGolf club makes it possible for me to not feel worn out after the round so I don’t have the recuperation time as I use to and in turn can play golf more often. I feel better about the whole experience.
Kevin Thompson, PowerGolf customer – I suffer from ALS and the PowerGolf club has enabled me to enjoy golfing again and bring the love of the game back into my life.
Russ Miller, PowerGolf customer - I had a back injury and 4 level fusion which caused me to quit golf for 5 years until I found the PowerGolf club . Since that time, I play at least once a week and sometimes twice. It allowed be to get back out on the course and interact with friends and neighbors who play golf.
Randy Kenniston, PowerGolf customer – I loved golfing but developed a physical disability and the PowerGolf club has helped me return to golfing again. I enjoy seeing the flight of the ball and golfing at all of my favorite courses just as I did in the past.
Jon Kramer, PowerGolf customer -The PowerGolf club has brought great joy to my life and enables me a play golf with my wife due to a serious back issue.
David Riley, PowerGolfer and wounded Veteran quad amputee – I learned of the PowerGolf club at the annual TEE Tournament last Summer and as an amputee it enabled me to get back out golfing with fellow veterans. I applaud the work that the PowerGolf group is doing to make golfing accessible for everyone.
