The Scottish Blind Golf Society

Scottish Blind Golf Society are the only registered charity which is a voluntarily run organisation, providing quality competition and training in golf for registered blind and visually impaired people in Scotland, recognised as a governing body by The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews. Since its humble beginnings in 1982, the "SBGS" has now developed into a well organised sports body where you can compete at local and national level as well as being the outlet for it's members to play in international events throughout the world.

Current opportunities

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.

The Secretary shall convene all meetings of the Society on behalf of the Captain, and maintain accurate minutes of all procedures and decisions, deal with all correspondence, maintain accurate records of membership, sight classifications, contact details, and to distribute news and information, including match results and minutes of meetings, to all members as required.
