Launches Saturday 15th September, 2018
Currently there are no resources for people with a spinal cord injury to play golf. Golf, for many, represents an opportunity for people to engage on a social level with their peers; the physical and mental health benefits of doing so are crucial for recovery and ongoing mental health.
To assist people with disabilities to participate in activities that they used to do, or encourage them to pursue their desire to engage in a new a sport, the Rotary Club of Geelong, genU and X Golf Geelong have joined together to raise the money required to purchase a ParaGolfer for our region.
X-Golf Geelong is the ultimate indoor Golf Centre. With their State of the art golf simulators allowing an amazing way to play the game of golf indoors. X-Golf has the world’s best digital golf course layouts and with its relaxed sports bar atmosphere, food and beverages, it’s the ultimate indoor golfing experience and it’s suitable for all abilities.
The ‘X Golf Cup’ will be held at X-Golf Geelong in 2018 from Saturday 15th September until Saturday 15th December, with participants paying $60 to play 9 holes of golf at a pre-determined course and a drink on arrival. $25 of the entrance fee will go directly towards the ParaGolfer.
This competition will be open to any person and participants can enter to play as many times as they like during the months of September, October and November. The winner will win a trip for four to play and stay at the award winning Barnbougle course in Tasmania.
Further details will be made available in coming weeks
