During these uncertain times, how can we help?

Our mission is transforming lives through therapeutic golf.
Fore Hope is a nationally recognized, non-profit organization that uses golf as an instrument to help in the rehabilitation of persons with disabilities or an inactive lifestyle. Our organization was one of the first to provide a therapeutic approach to golf by creating a program for persons of all ages, disabilities and economic backgrounds, while assisting them with their physical and emotional development.
Fore Hope is making a difference! Medical professionals are becoming more aware of the therapeutic benefits of golf. Golf is the viable means by which an individual can rejoin life to its fullest - activity, social opportunities, fun and rehabilitation. Mindy Derr, Executive Director, founded Fore Hope in 1989.
Guy Derr , former resident of Loudonville, Ohio, was the reason for the beginning of Fore Hope. He was an avid golfer and became disabled many years ago. Guy leaves a legacy to the Fore Hope organization.
Fore Hope program activities are provided by Fore Hope's Certified Therapeutic Recreational Specialist, volunteer therapists, volunteers and PGA Golf Professionals. Annually, Fore Hope impacts 350 persons with disabilities in Central Ohio. Our many programs include the following:
· Rehabilitation Inpatient and Outpatient
· Care Centers
· Individual and group instruction
· Adaptive Tournament of Competition
