The Disabled Golf Association CIC (DGA) est. 2014 has the sole purpose of getting more disabled people onto a golf course for therapy and general well-being. Their focus is on providing low cost golf days for people with impairments and disabilities. Sourcing venues, professional coaches and equipment to provide a complete pathway from beginners at taster sessions, to events, and elite events such as internationals, DGA’s aim is to help people experience and harness the incredible power of golf. Everyone is welcome. We all have one thing in common - a love, call it an unescapable passion, for the great game of golf!
Disabled Golf Association
Disabled Golf Association members are mostly quite competitive even if one person’s journey is different to another, it’s all about self-improvement – improving your own Stableford score from week to week, being able to stand or walk longer or further, being able to balance, adapting to play one-handed, learning to face the world again after diagnosis, accident, trauma or injury, being out in the fresh air, or just being happier –and for some of course, it’s about being the best!
We inspire our members and educate others - showcasing and celebrating that disabled and impaired golfers can play some awesome golf!
My name is Graeme Robertson and I am Captain of TEAM ENGLAND for #disabledgolf . Formerly a keen sportsman, I have primary progressive MS and have found a way to play again. It truly is amazing the power of the human mind to overcome adversity. Sport can be vital in therapy and rehabilitation of disabled people, as well of course as those with impairments/hidden disabilities. Golf of course compared to other sports, played with a stationary ball, can stimulate neural pathways and I know from personal experience the difference my participation has made on my health having primary progressive MS.
