Blind Golf Australia
We were delighted to host a group of players, and the gorgeous lab Goldie, from Blind Golf New South Wales on Monday, 9 November 2020.
With a few exceptions, Blind Golf is played in the same way as sighted golf. Blind Golfers require a guide to assist them around the course, which can take around six hours. The golfer and their caddy both need a reasonable knowledge of golf rules and etiquette and a reasonable level of fitness. A major difference between blind / sighted golf is that blind golfers can ground their club in a hazard – a bunker or a water hazard. The caddy may stand behind the flag as the blind golfer putts.
Blind Golf New South Wales is always looking for guides to assist the vision impaired players around the course. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward your details onto Jennie Abela.
