In 16 years, we have provided 4,004 golf lessons via 118 PGA Pro's and 96 curling packages via 17 Coaches.
The SDGC would like to take this opportunity to thank the almost 300 UK funders, Charitable Trusts and Foundations, who have supported our charity over the last 16 years, allowing us to operate our Lessons and Practice Programme.
The Programme runs across Scotland from 1 February, through to 30 November each year. When members are accepted on to the Programme, they need to contact their local SDGC HUB, golf club, driving range or ice rink, with a recognized PGA Professional or Curling Coach and get them to provide a lessons or lesson and practice package.
Practice time could be taken on the golf course, driving range or ice rink. If members take both lessons and practice time, then at least one PGA Professional or Curling Coach supervised lesson, must be taken as part of the package.
The SDGC will settle official invoices at the conclusion of each members programme and these must come direct from a PGA Professional or Curling Coach, based at an SDGC HUB, golf club, driving range or ice rink and at lease one picture of the member and their PGA Professional or Curling Coach, must also be forwarded to the SDGC.
To register and get more information on the Programme, Scottish based Full Members of the SDGC, should just send a mail via the Contact us link at the top of this page.
What is an SDGC HUB?
Over the last 16 years, the SDGC has provided tuition for its members, at more than 200 venues.
This has been achieved thanks to our sponsors and the good will of the Scottish clubs and societies and largely arranged informally, between the charity and the professionals and coaches.
The SDGC would like to further develop these arrangements and establish golf and curling hubs around the country, where members, disabled people and friends, could receive tuition, meet and socialize with other established disabled players and our volunteers.
We are therefore asking those clubs and societies to join us and become an “SDGC HUB”, which could ultimately increase memberships for both the club and SDGC, plus generate new business through our Members Lessons Programme.
An SDGC HUB would be a recognised club/facility that has a positive record on encouraging people with a disability to come and enjoy the game. Appropriate access, friendly and helpful staff and qualified instructors with experience of delivering coaching to a range of disabilities, which ultimately creates a positive environment and experience for our members and potential new members.
