Caruso’s Golf Academy
The San Antonio Sports Association for the Deaf (SASAD) is partnering with
Mike Houston, PGA graduate, and Caruso’s Golf Academy to providing an ASL
accessible Jjr. Golf Camp August 8 – 11, 2011 from 9am – 12 noon.
Mike Houston, is the first Deaf person to obtain recognition by the
Professional Golf Association, has been tireless in his efforts to establish
an accessible Jr. Golf Program in Texas. Part of his efforts have included
helping TSD establish a golf program, and finding funding to build a
practice area and hire an instructor, Brandon Babineaux, also deaf and an
extremely talented golfer, quite possibly the best deaf golfer in the
The camp costs $200. Limited financial assistance is available on a case-by
case basis. Please contact Scott Bailey at [email protected] if you
would like more information about financial assistance for the camp. This
initial program is limited to 8 children. These children can be Deaf, HoH or
KODA. This camp is being held at the same time as a larger Jr. golf camp
and with ASL access being provided, children and parents will be able to
interact with everyone! Your child will not need to purchase any equipment
to participate in this camp.
The junior camps will be for all ages beginning at 5 years old. We will
teach the beginners the basics of golf and we will make sure they have a
great time learning. For those that are a little more advanced than the
beginner, we will be focusing on developing the swing utilizing all of our
teaching and video equipment.
