What is Golf?

Golf is a sport for all. Players use golf clubs to hit the golf ball towards the green where they will then aim to putt the ball into the cup. You can play individually or with a group of up to 4 players for a round. You can also play for as many holes as you would like up to 18 in a round.

How do I play Golf?

Golf can be played by disabled people with a range of impairments. Those with more profound physical impairments may use a buggy to get around the course.
