Golf camp a big hit with Northeast Florida kids with autism

The three Davis brothers counted down the days until they went back to golf camp.

Their mother, Megan Davis, would tell them HUG/HEAL Golf Camp, a three-day golf camp at TPC Sawgrass for children with autism, was a week or two away.

“No, Mom, it’s nine days,” they would reply, knowing the exact count.

Ian, 9, is not on the autism spectrum, but his younger brothers, Liam, 7, and Camden, 5, were diagnosed last June. The Davis boys attended the golf camp for the first time last summer.

It was the first time they had ever golfed, and “they were hooked,” their mom said.

The brothers and 11 other campers spent Monday through Wednesday learning golf skills from professionals, exploring the two courses at TPC Sawgrass and making friends.
