Mid Atlantic Blind Association (MABGA)

On June 11, 2016, at the Anchor Golf Center, in Whippany, NJ, a group of blind/visually impaired boys and girls enjoyed an exciting afternoon of golf, highlighted by complimentary golf instruction from New Jersey Section Professionals as well as junior golfers from the NJPGA Junior Tour.  


Each individual was paired with a Section member and received tips on thefundamentals of the game.


The clinic was complemented by a summer carnival that included music, food, games, and contests!  


The New Jersey Golf Foundation proudly supports the Middle Atlantic Blind Golf Association, a non-profit 501c corporation that provides blind and visually impaired (legally blind) men, women, and children the opportunity to enjoy the challenges and rewards that golf offers. 


Today, MABGA has 115 visually impaired golfers and coaches, with another 78 junior blind golfers.

"Sam is an amazing teacher! He goes out of his way to come up with
solutions for difficulties I may have with anything. He is always patient
and encourages me to achieve more. He has given me the confidence
and skills at golf that I never thought I could have. I am enjoying my
lessons with Sam and am excited to try out my new skills on my high
school golf team next year. This is something that I never would have
even considered if not for PGA professionals like Sam who volunteer
their time and expertise."
