British Inclusive Golf (formally British Disabled Golf) was founded in July 2012 by Kevin & Cerise Booth. The charity is in its 6th year and has decided to be self-funding from now on, 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.
Our aim at British Inclusive Golf is to bring disabled and non-disabled people together on the golf course through a programme of taster sessions, organised range games and on-course golf events, enabling better social inclusion and aiding rehabilitation. 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.
