Disabled get access to new facilities

The Scottish Disability Golf & Curling charity, will launch its second HUB later this month at the Elmwood Golf Club near Cupar, where golfers from as far afield as England and Northern Ireland will help tee-off the new project.

PGA Students from Elmwood’s College, representatives of the Elmwood Golfing Society and SDGC members , will provide some tips and tuition for existing golfing and new members with disabilities on Friday 31 January from 10:00

An “SDGC HUB” is a recognised club/facility that has a positive record on encouraging people with a disability to come and enjoy the game. Appropriate access, friendly and helpful staff and qualified instructors with experience of delivering coaching to a range of disabilities, which ultimately creates a positive environment and experience for our members.

Jim Gales, the Secretary of the charity said, “Funding, which helped to establish Scotland’s first disability hub  in St Andrews earlier this month, has come from Trusts and Foundations across the UK and each HUB session can include lessons, putting and other golf practice facilities, as well as the most important social side of the game, with members mixing with PGA Professionals, Coaches and our volunteers.”
