Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 3.57.10 PMThe Walton Foundation will be co-sponsoring the Dennis Walters Golf Demonstration with The First Tee of Aiken on Monday, May 4 at Houndslake Country Club, from 5:30 -6:30 pm (see flyer).

Dennis Walters is a nationally known adaptive golfer, speaker and host of the Dennis Walters Golf Show, traveling across the country demonstrating remarkable golf skills and incredible inspiration. His show is about reaching for dreams and never giving up. To Dennis, a dream is having a positive thought in your head and in your heart and doing whatever it takes to make that dream come true: “If you have a dream and it doesn’t work out, never stop dreaming…just get a new dream!”

Dennis’ dream was always to play successfully on the PGA tour. After an accident in 1974, he was left paralyzed from the waist down and found there were a lot of things he could no longer do. But he didn’t give up. The first thing was to figure out a way to play golf since he could not stand, so he started by hitting golf shots from his wheelchair. He then progressed to a swivel seat mounted on the passenger side of a golf cart, and since 1977, he has made over 3,000 appearances, performed in all 50 states, Mexico, Canada and the UK.  He and his dog Bucky usually do about 90-100 shows per year. Dennis uses his own personal experience as an example to challenge each person in the audience to do something in their life that perhaps they thought was impossible; for with hard work, dedication, perseverance you can achieve success at anything.

We invite you, your friends and family to come join us for this remarkable demonstration of ability and determination, Monday afternoon, May 4th on the driving range at The First Tee of Aiken at Houndslake Country Club, Aiken.
