The Therapeutic Value of Golf 
- a guide for health and social care professionals 
In 2023, Sport for Confidence partnered with Golf in Society to deliver a year-long program exploring how golfing interventions, delivered by occupational therapists and physiotherapists, can improve health and strength in those who are frail and living with dementia. 
Concluding the year-long program a free-to-access guide was created showcasing how golf can be adapted to deliver life changingly positive occupational outcomes for those involved. 
Aimed at health and social care professionals, the guide demonstrates golf’s therapeutic potential, highlighting, when positively and pro-actively delivered, supported, and adapted, golf can deliver hugely positive holistic health and wellbeing outcomes for people who may historically have experienced barriers to participating in physical activity and accessing community spaces.
