The Foundation promotes golf as a means of treatment for persons of many abilities.  Golf is a recreational and competitive activity as well as a means to provide continuing services in therapeutic recreation long after most therapy ends.

Marty Turcios, born with Cerebral Palsy, acquired a  Masters degree from San Jose State.  Despite speech and mobility impairments, Marty began playing golf as a youth and is an accomplished golfer and educator today.  Marty has a unique  ability to make disabled people feel able to enjoy golf.   A natural teacher and leader, Marty Turcios creates classes, instructs individuals, coaches, provides and enhances therapy treatments and shares his methods with other organizations and individuals.

Quote from a satisfied patient: 
“…My physical therapist asked me to try to stand, unaided, for one minute.  Marty pointed out that I had been standing unaided for three minutes, and I didn’t even notice because I was so focused on the ball....”

Current Classes
Currently Marty teaches disabled veterans from the Martinez Veterans Hospital and autistic teens and adults from the day care program RES. In addition to the golf therapy sessions, the Foundation also provides enrichment oppportunities for the participants such as being marshals at major golf tournaments.
