No such thing as a golf disability

Welcome to day three of Golf and Health Week!

Each day this week, in conjunction with the R&A’s global promotion to help raise awareness of the health benefits of golf for people of all ages and abilities, we will showcase a great example of how to get involved to improve your wellbeing.

Today, we focus on the extremely positive role that the sport plays in the lives of golfers with a disability.

Specifically, we look back on a ground-breaking event played concurrently with the Australian Open last year when the Australian All Abilities Championship brought the inclusivity of golf into the mainstream with a world-class bang.

Through Golf and Health Week and our own real-life stories, we’ll focus on different aspects of the sport and how they can benefit different groups within society.
