Hello, and thanks for taking the time to look into the world of disabled golf and curling.
Scottish Disability Golf & Curling (Sc 041000) is governed and operated by disabled people and was the first organisation in the world, to incorporate anyone of any age, with a physical, sensory or intellectual disability, that interferes with the playing or learning about either sport.
We organize golf from April to October and curling from October through to March and, when there is an overlap of seasons, we operate “Sticks & Stones” events, where members can participate in both sports at multi-day events.
We have a small number of event organisers and are enormously proud of the quality of our volunteers, guides, coaches and carers, who continue to play a major part in the running of the charity.
Each year for our golfing members, we organise:
Locally based golf lessons with PGA Teaching Professionals
Nine and eighteen hole, Single and multiple day competitions
A National Order of Merit Championship
A multi-day Team International, both in the UK and overseas
A multi-day Scottish Open
a National Championship and over twenty other games and competitions
+ we are an outlet to International golf in over thirty countries
Each year for our curling members, we organise:
Locally based lessons for members with coaches and professionals
Several single and multi-day events and practice sessions
Numerous mixed fun games with other curling clubs and groups
+ we are an outlet to International curling in over ten other countries
Our “Sticks & Stones” events, incorporate all aspects of golf and curling and are arranged over two or three days. They involve curling competitions and practice and either golf rounds and/or practice time for both disabled members and their coaches/carers.
Our members have featured prominently in many disabled golf and curling Open Championships, Team Internationals and World events, with our players claiming victories and top ten finishes, in many European countries including, Turkey, Germany, Norway, France, Italy and the Home Nations, as well as competitions in the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia and Portugal.
