Hello, and thanks for taking the time to look into the world of disabled golf.
Scottish Disability Golf is governed and operated by disabled people and was the first golfing organisation in the world, to incorporate anyone of any age, with a physical, sensory or intellectual disability, that interferes with the playing or learning about the game of golf. We also actively involve the carers, guides, coaches and supporters of our disabled participants.
We host golf events across Scotland, reaching from the Highland's to the Scottish Borders and down into England. We have a small number of event organisers and are enormously proud of the quality of our volunteers and members who play a major part in the running of the charity.
We provide a platform and an appropriate sport specific pathway for anyone who is disabled, by organising the following:
Locally based golf lessons for members with PGA Teaching Professionals
Nine and eighteen hole, fun golf events for members
Nine and eighteen hole, Single and multiple day competitions for members
A National Order of Merit Championship
Two multi-day Team International Ryder Cup style competitions
A multi-day Scottish Open, a National Championship and over twenty other events
+ we are an outlet to International golf in over thirty countries
Our members have featured prominently in many disabled golf Open Championships, Team Internationals and World events, with our golfers claiming victories and top ten finishes, in many European countries including, Turkey, Germany, Norway, France and Italy, as well as competitions in the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia and South Africa. The SDGP has a strategy which will direct the work of the charity through to and including a Paralympics bid, and beyond.
