Disabled golfers from across Scotland will attend the Studio Golf facility in Stevenston Ayrshire, for a day-long training session at their new indoor centre, with local PGA Golf Professional, David Rushbury, on Monday 21 November.
International players, heading off soon to the Portuguese Disabled Open, will be in attendance, along with beginners and novices to the game, for some tuition from owner and resident Pro David Rushbury.
Chic Brodie, formerMSP and supporter of disabled golfers, along with his son who is a Professional Golf Coach, will also attend the event to help out with tuition and support for Scottish Disability Golf.
James Gales MBE, who is the Secretary and Founder of the Scottish Disability Golf charity said, “this is a wonderful opportunity for some of our members to get some much needed winter practice. We have an extensive golf diary throughout the traditional golfing season, but like most players, we cannot get a great deal of practice throughout the colder months. The new Studio Golf facility looks great and we can get some tuition and fun practice on the simulator, playing some prestigious golf courses, while relaxing with a coffee”.
Some of those attending will be heading off at the end of the month for the final European Disabled Golf Championship event of the year, at the Villa Sol Resort in Portugal. The event, for the European Order of Merit Rankings will host over forty of the best disabled golfers from across Europe for the coveted title.
David Rushbury began his career in golf at Troon Municipal Courses for 3 years before fully qualifying as a Professional in 1982. Since then he has worked and taught in the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Spain and various other European locations, before opening the 3000-square foot facility in Stevenston last year.
