GOLFERS WITH A DISABILITY

Golf is a sport that proudly accommodates people with a range of disabilities. A variety of organizations at state and national level are available to assist people with a disability who are looking to play golf.

Our inclusion program provides an opportunity for people who might not have had the opportunity to learn the game of golf, to have a go within a safe and comfortable environment. The program also provides health and social benefits.

The inclusive program is run in conjunction with the City of Adelaide and Inclusive Sport SA who each contribute to the program and in turn provide access and learning opportunities for the groups involved.

> Inclusive Sport SA

Inclusive Sport SA (Sasrapid) is dedicated to building an inclusive culture in sport and recreation in South Australia.

For over three decades, Sasrapid built a strong reputation as a leading organisation for the inclusion of people living with disability into community sport, based on the pioneering work of Marie Little OAM. During this time Sasrapid accumulated a vast knowledge of best practice that can assist sporting groups and clubs to become more inclusive.

> Royal Society for the Blind

Established in Adelaide in over 130 years ago, the Royal Society for the Blind is a not-for-profit organisation that provides services to people who are blind and vision impaired. These services are delivered by a professional, committed and highly qualified team; supported by volunteers drawn from all age groups and walks of life.

Where blindness or vision impairment have a severe impact on a person's lifestyle, the RSB assists them to participate as independently as possible in their community.
