CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's golf program teamed up with the City of Chattanooga Parks and Recreation Therapeutic Recreation Services for a Golf Skills Open House this past Saturday at the Player Development Complex. Team members provided a number of different skills and playing challenges, along with the First Tee of Chattanooga, to help grow the game of golf to a group of people with various disabilities.
"C.H.I.P.S. is a great program," said assistant golf coach Ben Rickett, who led the Mocs effort in developing the open house with Elaine Adams from the Therapeutic Recreation Services. "We got involved playing with the group in the fall and our student-athletes enjoyed it and wanted to do more. We're thrilled at the turn out and being able to give back our community, as well as the game we love so much."
