England Golf launch disability Championship


ENGLAND Golf will launch a disability championship for the first time in 2019 as part of its calendar of events.

Over the past two years, they have worked with the charity BALASA Golf to shape a national championship and it has been confirmed that they will take sole responsibility for this event from 2019.

This will be the first time that the England Golf championship programme has included a disability event and it underlines the organisation’s commitment to being customer focussed.

The championship will offer a competitive opportunity to golfers who are an important part of the game – and their views are being sought to shape the event.

Disabled golfers, both club members and non-members, are invited to complete a short survey about the type of event they would like. Email clubsupport@englandgolf.org to receive the survey in an alternative format. The survey will run until January 15.

Jamie Blair, disability manager for England Golf, commented: “This a fantastic step forward and shows our commitment to providing for disabled people at all levels within our game.

“Offering an event that will be shaped by disabled golfers will allow us to ensure we provide a great experience and will cement this event within our championship programme.”
