Golf Fore Addiction
Fill the Void, Drive the Passion
What does GFA do?
Golf Fore Addiction was created in 2022 by Lawrence Fortin, owner and co-CEO of T-Golfs LLC, with the goal to get golf into the hands of post-recovering addicts. We offer golf services for sober recipients looking to "fill the void and drive the passion!" We strive to help recovering addicts create a new routine by teaching these individuals the sport of golf, with no start-up cost to them.
Our charity provides a free golf package including: sporting good attire, golf lessons, golf clubs, range time, and course play.
Golf is an expensive sport to pursue and not in the budget for many, which is where we come in to provide the materials to individuals who want to better themselves. Many addicts will replace one addiction with another type of addiction and giving them an opportunity to try something new is how we plan to help. Golf teaches and builds; self-esteem, human interaction, manners, and humility, and can help with or prevent anxiety, depression, suicide, and substance abuse.
We choose recipients through sponsors and allow the recipient to remain anonymous.
