Annual Amputee Golf Tournament Set for July 8-10, 2011
American Prosthetics & Orthotics to Sponsor for 16th Consecutive Year

For the 16th consecutive year, American Prosthetics & Orthotics (APO) is sponsoring the Iowa Amputee Golf Association’s (IAGA) golf tournament. The 20th annual tournament is scheduled for Friday, July 8, through Sunday, July 10, at the Willow Creek Golf Course, 140 Army Post Road, West Des Moines. The event begins with a shotgun start on Friday at noon. Saturday’s and Sunday’s competition begins at 8 a.m.

The tournament, which also includes a four-person, best-shot scramble competition open to the public, is a recreational outlet for upper- and/or lower-extremity amputees, focusing on education and rehabilitation through participation in the sport of golf. In past years, the competition has raised significant scholarship funds for Iowa amputees, as well as immediate family members of amputees.
