British Inclusive Golf aim to bring disabled and non-disabled people together on the golf course through a programme of taster sessions, organised range games and organised on course golf events, enabling better social inclusion and aiding rehabilitation. British Inclusive Golf (formally British Disabled Golf) was founded in July 2012 by Kevin & Cerise Booth.British Inclusive Golf
We are currently running a program of taster sessions and workshops for disability groups in the North East and North West down the M62/A1 corridor. The charity is in its 4th year and has decided to be self-funding in 2016, as this gives more flexibility to work with groups who wish to take advantage of the BIG program, rather than working with groups who feel they have to be involved.
We are also fortunate to have Huddersfield golfer Chris Hanson a European Tour Pro become our Ambassador this year and hopefully his support will attract new members and support.
The Charity golf events for the year are to be held on the following dates and locations:
- Friday April 1st @ Waterfront Golf Club, Wath on Dearne
- Friday May 20th @ Hart Common Golf Club, Bolton
- Friday July 22nd @ Longley Park Golf Club, Huddersfield
- Friday August 26th @ Rother Valley Golf Club, Sheffield
- Thursday & Friday 29th – 30th September @ Portal Hotel Golf & Spa, Cheshire
- Friday October 28th @ Unknown golf course in North East
Plus we have 2 representative matches where the charity invite disabled golfers to represent the charity against other organisations these are:
- Sunday April 17th versus Halifax, Huddersfield and District Golf Union Juniors @ Elland Golf Club
- June 20th – 22nd versus Scottish Disability Golf partnership @ Linden Hall Hotel, Northumberland.
