Adaptive Golf

Adaptive Golf ParticipantDesigned to enhance the personal and physical growth of participants with physical and mental disabilities, "Buddie's Buddies" and "Buddie's Veteran's Adaptive Golf" are programs which emphasize "your only handicap is your golf handicap!"

Led by Buddie Butterfield, an Adaptive Golf Foundation certified golf instructor, participants learn how to adapt their disability in relation to their golf game and to assist each other on the golf course.

  • Buddie's Buddies is open to anyone with special needs, ages 6 to 83.
  • Buddie's Veteran's Adaptive Golf is open to disabled veterans and active duty personnel injured in the line of duty.

Fitting and adaptive equipment is available, along with adaptive carts (as needed).


Clinics are held in the spring, summer and fall from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at the Sykes/Lady Overland Park Golf Course, 12501 Quivira Road. Participants meet at the range.

Pre-registration is required at least one week prior to the event. All clinics include adaptive golf instruction, rules and forms.
