The Disabled Golf Association has unveiled an exciting event line-up for 2015 at some top venues around the country.

Highlights include the ‘Race to Burhill’ playing at 7 BGL courses, the first 3 in each will qualify for the final at Burhill Golf Club in Surrey, a visit to Brocket Hall in June and the Golf Trust Open at the Shire in July.

Graeme Robertson, events co-ordinator, said, “We are delighted to have Mark James as our Patron. Our main focus is on golf as a therapy and for rehabilitation, but that’s not to say there isn’t some stiff competition. We had a very successful 2014. Our sincere thanks have to go for the support from Captain’s Charities around the country, so we can carry out providing an opportunity for all kinds of disabled people to enjoy golf for competition, and the all important 19th hole.

“Going to clubs who are genuinely interested in what we do makes a world of difference. We will be running an order of merit with places up for grabs for Team England to play for The Oldfield Trophy against Wales at The Vale in September.”

The full list of fixtures, which starts on Friday 6th March at Hurtmore Golf Club in Surrey, can be viewed on the DGA’s website.
