Hi does anyone have any ideas of activities that would suit a resident who used to be a keen golfer? Thanks

Hi Christina,

Have you thought about hiring a put-put or mini golf set from your local golf club or even indoor entertainment centre's sometimes have them I know our bowling alley does? You could even get a large piece of green carpet/material and cut a hole in the top and look around second hand stores for old golf clubs and balls?

What about Wii games console on a TV?

Another idea if the resident doesn't have good mobility or has dementia (likes to be repetitive) you could have your resident bag up golf tees and give them back too the golf clubs for a small fee? Keeps them occupied and also gives them community involvement

I hope this helps :)

We play golf putting on the carpet at The Redwood Club in Tawa Wellington NZ. The back board is easy to make or usually can be purchased. Great fun for left or right habders.

I think Amazon has a golf game that might be appropriate
