If you’re blind or have any level of visual impairment, or if you’re just curious and want to see some of Australia’s best blind golfers in action, don’t miss the come and try day on August 28.
Blind Golf Queensland invites you to come and try blind golf at TS Golf Academy at The Glades Driving Range, Robina on August 28 starting from 12 noon.”It’s a great sport for blind and visually impaired people of all ages” says Dr Brad Carver, BGQ President.
“Most blind people don’t realise exactly how suitable blind golf is both as a serious sport and as a way of getting out there, enjoying the outdoors and meeting new friends.”
“The golf ball is stationary, so unlike almost every other sport, hand-eye coordination is not really necessary.””Our caddys align the golf club with the ball on the ground and then you just hit it – simple.
“A number of experienced PGA coaches will be available to provide help and support at no cost to those who want to give it a go.Organisers also hope to have disability-industry professionals in attendance so that they can see the benefits that blind golf can provide to players with visual conditions.
The come and try sessions are completely free of charge to all members of the public.
