Sister Kenny Golf Program
Braemar has been a partner with the Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute since the 1980s. With the help of many of its teaching professionals, the course has helped develop a golf program that is nationally recognized for meeting the needs of people with disabilities. Sister Kenny golfers have had spinal cord injuries, amputations, strokes, polio, arthritis and other physical disabilities.
Throughout the summer, the league meets for weekly play on Braemar's nine-hole executive course. Free lessons from a course pro accompany the membership. At the end of the year, members participate in a nine or eighteen-hole tournament.
