Burke is hosting its 16th annual First Swing Adaptive Golf Clinic for therapists, golf professionals and physically challenged individuals. It is designed to train therapists and other rehabilitation team professionals to teach and encourage people with disabilities to learn or re-learn the game of golf.

The clinic will cover the appropriate golf club grip, how to assume the proper stance and address ball set-up and balance. Elements of the seated and standing swing are taught, along with demonstrations of adaptive equipment.

The day will be broken up into a morning session and an afternoon session.
