The Arc Westchester is the largest agency in Westchester County, supporting children, teens, and adults with developmental disabilities, including individuals on the autism spectrum, and their families. The Arc Westchester has locations throughout Westchester County: Mount Kisco, Ossining, New Rochelle, Peekskill, Port Chester, White Plains, and Yonkers. Participants enjoyed three weeks of introductory golf clinics to learn the basics of the game. 

"All of us at The Arc Westchester are incredibly grateful that the MGA volunteered their time and talent to provide these instructional clinics for our program participants," said Barry Clark, the executive director of The Arc Westchester Foundation. "It meant so much to everyone who took part.  These kinds of activities do a great deal for the overall health and happiness of the people we support, and that aside, it was a great time. We're looking forward to the next opportunity to collaborate, such as at our annual Golfing For Kids golf outing to benefit our Children's School for Early Development. Thank you, MGA!"

The clinics were held over three weeks for close to 15 participants. The participants were taught golf fundamentals, like gripping the club, proper stance, and the basics of the golf swing, and competed in a variety of games on the driving range.   

Ryan Kayton, the MGA's Manager of Adaptive Golf, said afterward, "It has been truly inspiring to work with The Arc Westchester to make adaptive golf clinics happen. Seeing people find golf's fun and health benefits in such a welcoming setting reinforces the importance of adaptive sports!"

The participants from The Arc Westchester have shown great enthusiasm and progress, learning new golf skills while enjoying the inclusive and supportive environment.
