About the SDGC

Information on some of the golf and curling opportunities we offer

 

The SDGC was established in January 2018, it is a volunteer led organisation and a Registered Scottish Charity.  This new organisation brought together two previously well known charities, the Scottish Disability Golf Partnership (established in 2004) and Disabled Curlers Scotland (established in 2014), to provide and develop year-round sports opportunities for disabled people across the country.

 

When we initially had the idea of a fully inclusive group in 2002,we were very impressed and most grateful for the input provided to our group, from the likes of: Fife Voluntary Action (formally VONEF), The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, SportScotland, Scottish Golf, The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, The St Andrews Links Trust, the Council and Members of Lundin, Balbirnie Park, Scotscraig, Cupar, Ladybank, Gleneagles, Cowdenbeath, Murrayfield, Wellsgreen and Kilmarnock Barassie golf venues, as well as the various local authorities throughout Scotland and the 100+ PGA Professionals who have assisted us.

 

We would also like to thank the dozens of volunteers, local business’s and Scots golfers, for their help and assistance in the creation and operation of our charity.

 

Thank you.
