Charity description

England and Wales Blind Golf logo
Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. ENGLAND & WALES BLIND GOLF is a registered Charity, formed in 1982, with the principle aim of providing registered blind people with the opportunity to participarte and compete in the great game of golf. Blind Golf is played strictly to the Royal & Ancient Rules of Golf with the exception that players are allowed to ground their club in a hazard. They also require the assistance of a sighted caddie or guide

The guide plays a vital role giving the blind golfer as much information as required, describing the terrain, giving the direction and distance as accurately as possible and then lining up the player for the desired shot. On the green the guide and player work closely together in assessing the distance and borrow from the ball to the pin, which may involve pacing from the ball to the pin and determining the strength and line of shot. It is very important to have a good player/guide relationship, each performing a vital role and each suffering disappointment over poor shots and great pleasure over good shots.

Charity No: 1064829
