My Story

I was intrigued by the excitement of golf…the camaraderie, competition, sportsmanship and the joy it brought to many. Little did I realize, when I was young, that my lot in life was to utilize the game of golf as a way for healing and hope!

I founded a nationally recognized grassroots therapeutic golf program that celebrates our 30th anniversary this year.

Mindy Derr is one of those dreamers who is a doer! I have witnessed first hand the power of the organization she created...many years ago. I was a participant in her program and the confidence it gave me was real. I felt more comfortable in socializing, playing golf and ultimately returned to work to help others with life challenges.
