Golf Guide/Driver

  • VO75260


Description

Visually impaired golfers need a guide to take them to and from golf courses, to help them before, during and after the match. The guide indicates the direction the golfer has to aim and follows the ball. You do not need to be a golfer yourself. The visually impaired golfer takes part in Blind Golf Scotland events in various locations in Scotland, and beyond if possible. Competitions take place approximately once a month during the summer but you could guide as many, or as few as you wish.

Organisation aims and objectives
