Participation in the game of golf is widespread and reaches all ages. Golf is the second most popular sport among U.S. adults, with more than 24 million Americans participating annually. Unfortunately, for the purposes of addiction recovery, with the benefits of golf also often comes alcohol/substance use and abuse. The Wilson-Smith Golf League was designed to create and foster a safe, healthy environment for those in recovery from AUD/SUD to enjoy the many beneficial aspects of the game of golf. This national organization aims to develop and organize a network of sober golf leagues throughout metropolitan areas of the United States.
The Wilson-Smith Golf League promotes addiction recovery through community and fellowship by coordinating services, communication, education, and information into a network of sober golf leagues. The goal of The Wilson-Smith Golf League is to create other WSGL chapters across the country to assist persons afflicted with Alcohol/Substance Use Disorder and their families.
