Frequently Asked Questions


Here are a few questions we have been asked recently.  We hope you find the answers helpful.  If you would like to get in touch with other questions, about any aspect of disability golf in Scotland, please just complete the contact form at the bottom of this page.  Thank you.

I would like to play in a match advertised on your list, how can I enter?

Our diary is arranged well before each season starts, and full entry details are usually advertised to members, about a month prior.  For major events like our Open, they are advertised at least six months beforehand.

 

I see you usually have food arranged after the golf, but I have a special diet, can you help?

Yes, this would normally be arranged on arrival at the golf club with the caterers.

 

Do you accept all types of disabilities in your group?

Yes, we have members with all types of disability, including amputees, Cerebral Palsy, MS, blind and vision impaired, Downs Syndrome, Epilepsy, MD and many, many more.  We accept any disability that interferes with the playing of the game.

 

What does it cost to join Scottish Disability Golf?

Nothing, membership for disabled people and their coaches and carers is free.

 

I have a CONGU golf club handicap of 14, will you accept it to play with Scottish Disability Golf?

Yes, just send us a copy of the golf handicap certificate from your golf club Secretary.

 

How do I get a golf handicap with Scottish Disability Golf?

Just join up, enter our competitions, we will give you a provisional one, then submit three signed score cards and we will sort out the rest.

 

I need a golf cart to play, do you provide everyone with a cart?

No, at our single and most multi-day events, members must arrange and pay for their own carts.  Only at the likes of our Open Championship, where sponsors are providing them. will carts be arranged

 

I am not able to play a full round of golf yet, can I just play nine?

Yes, we have a Pairs League in operation, where  two golfers play a foursome (alternate shot) format, so in effect play only nine holes.  Individuals may also enter events and finish after nine if they wish.

 

How can I play in one of your big events, like the Open?

Anyone can enter the likes of our Open, but they must hold a recognised golf handicap  and comply with the entry criteria laid down by the organisers.

 

Do I need to bring some clubs to practice sessions or golf lessons?

Ideally yes, but we can get something to get you started.  Once you take up the game, you will need your own clubs.

 

What happens if it rains at one of your games?

We usually get wet.  Showers and squalls are probably going to happen from time to time in Scotland.  If it’s really bad and affecting the course, game and individuals we will cancel.

 

I need a paragolfer unit, do you provide grants to buy one?

No, Scottish Disability Golf cannot provide grants for equipment.
