Organisers of the Blind Golf Qld “come and try” day at Noosa Spring Golf Club on August 7 has been hailed the event as a huge success.
About ten, mostly blind Sunshine Coast would-be golfers attended the event, hosted by Noosa Springs Golf Club coaching pro Peter Heiniger PGA, along with a good contingent of Qld Blind Golf members and their caddys.
Peter Heiniger demmonstrated why he’s so highly regarded as a coaching pro by explaining the basic concepts of golf to a room of blind novices.
While trying to maintain proper social distancing at all times, the group gathered indoors due to scattered showers which thankfully eased in time to allow everyone to move to the range for further instruction.
BGQ has recieved a number of new membership applications and look forwarsd to welcoming a number of new Sunshine Coast players onboard as new members.
Given the overhwelming success of the day, BGQ will look at holding a number of social games and clinics in the area in the not-too-distant future.
“We hope to make this a regular thing” siad club president Dr Brad Carver.
“Pretty soon we’ll have monthly social games covering the Gold Coast, the Ipswich/Logan area, Brisbane and now the Sunshine Coast” he said.
“We also want to express our thanks to Peter Heiniger PGa for his time and effort and also to the staff at Noosa Springs Golf Club that made our group feel especially welcome!”
