Disabled Golf is a short golf blog post that takes a look at the world of golf for those golfers with disabilities.

To start with, golf is a game for everyone! It doesn’t matter about your age, sexual orientation or even physical condition.
Even when you are physically challenged in whatever way, golf is there for you to enjoy.

22 years ago the Disabled Golf Association (DGA) was founded to help support all golfers with disabilities.
The association helps thousands of people across the UK.
These golfers suffer from all sorts of impairments including, Amputees, Blind, Deaf, Cerebral Palsy, and Down’s Syndrome.
Some of the players suffer from MS, Parkinson’s, Global Delay, and Hypermobility. Even Tourettes, Stroke Survivors, ADHD, Autism & Arthritis.

      Hi Alistair,

      It is amazing to see how they get around certain obstacles in their lives and just get on with things as normal.
      We should often take a leaf out of their books. There are no excuses!

      Best regards
      Graeme
