The Isle of Lewis has been chosen as one of seven venues to host events as part of Scotland’s first National Activity Week aimed specifically at introducing new disabled players of all ages to the game of golf.
The initiative is launched by the charity Scottish Disability Golf and Curling (SDGC), Scotland’s only golf organization for people with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities.
Disabled Golf Week (Scotland) 2022 has been organized to coincide with the 150th Open at St Andrews and will run from Saturday 23rd July to Friday 29th July with daily golf centers being held across the country.
An SDGC golf center is designed specifically to accommodate all types of people with any type of disability or serious health condition that interferes with the game, whether boys, girls, men or women and any age or golf ability.
SDGC Chairman Jim Gales said: “We invite everyone to come and try, not just the golf or the lessons, but to come and enjoy the social aspect of our events and experience how we operate. We want to attract new members of all ages and abilities.
The Isle of Lewis hub will be held on Wednesday July 27 at 10:00am at the Back Range (HS2 0LS) with lessons and training provided by PGA Professional Bradley Ferguson.
Thanks to its sponsors across the UK, the SDGC is able to provide all aspects of Disabled Golf Week free of charge to attendees. Membership of the association is also free, and the 100 events it organizes throughout the year are also free or heavily subsidized for members.
