There are different formats of the game and equipment you can use. We just want to show you how. Fill out the form and just let us know what impairment you have and we will try to make golf accesible for you!
Absolutely! Every seated golfer will develop a unique style regardless of ability and what works with one seated golfer may not work with another similar functioning player. Hence our coaches will help find the right position with you.
All equipment will be provided for participation in the activity. Due to the nature of the activity taking place outdoors, we advise that you wear suitable footwear and outdoor clothing which also includes clothing suitable for changing weather conditions.
The golf activities will always be positioned and prepared for best access for participants with mobility limitations and wheelchair users. The golf facilities used have ample nearby disability parking spaces and accessible toilets.
