The Scottish Disability Golf Partnership is governed and operated by
disabled people and is the only group in Scotland which actively encourages
and involves anyone of any age, with a disability, serious health problem or
mobility issue and their coaches, who wish to play golf and includes
amputees, the blind, deaf, those with learning difficulties, downs syndrome,
stroke and heart attack victims, wheelchair users and anyone with other
similar issues, who wish to learn or play the sport.

The SDGP are also well into their arrangements for the Worlds biggest ever
disabled team, Ryder Cup style event, which will take place at the
Westerwood Resort and Hotel in July 2011.  Each of the 4 teams participating
will have 12 golfers and be played over 4 days.  Participants will include
golfers with all types of disabilities including amputees, the deaf, blind
and those with learning disabilities, as well as wheelchair users.  The
World Team Cup will follow a brand new 3-day Scottish Championship at the
Dullatur Golf Club and, thanks to some wonderful support from the 2 host
golf clubs and strong sponsorship from across Scotland the SDGP is pulling
together a package of golf, a week’s hotel stay, and food and golf carts for
golfers from around the world.
