AVAST Members Help Teach Other Amputees Through the Weekly Adaptive Golf Program
The first Wednesday of every month, AVAST members gather at Terrace Hill Golf Club
along with patients from the James Haley Veterans Memorial Hospital. They work to
develop adaptive golfing skills and help coach the veterans in the games rules and
etiquette. Each day out there is a gift to all who participate.
