Could you support UK blind golfers?

BLIND golfers in the UK are on the hunt for guides to help them continue to take part in the sport.

England and Wales Blind Golf has launched a drive to get more volunteers involved in a bid to grow the game and reach more people.

“The hardest thing they find is to ask for help and that’s why we’ve been pushing the big drive to get more people,” said the organisation’s press officer Steve Killick.

“Even if you have a fourball, one of the four can help to line up the visually impaired golfer.

“But there are simply not enough guides to get them to the courses.

“Golf has saved lives. Some of these guys have lost everything. One guy who had diabetes went blind overnight.

“He lost his job, ended up homeless and he will freely admit that had he not got involved in golf, he was seriously thinking about ending it all.

“The satisfaction of being able to hit that ball helps them overcome their blindness. It’s a real triumph over adversity.”
