Golf is a sport many people with disabilities can enjoy, thanks to adaptive equipment and people dedicated to sharing their love of the game. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Sister Kenny Institute’s golf league and the 26th year of its annual golf tournament. The Sister Kenny golf league started in 1979 with about half a dozen participants; now there are 150.
This year’s tournament for people with disabilities is at the Braemar Golf Course, Edina Aug. 21. Golfers may play nine or 18 holes. Teams are put together based on handicap, golf scores averaged throughout the season.
