PowaKaddy assists golf disability groups

PowaKaddy, in conjunction with England Golf, has donated some electric trolleys to several national golf-related disability groups. England Golf presented PowaKaddy electric trolleys to England Deaf Golf, England and Wales Blind Golf, BALASA Golf and the Disabled Golf Association. Each group determined who would be awarded an individual trolley to increase engagement of their members in golf.

England Deaf Golf chose to award its trolleys as prizes to the winners of the 2014 England Deaf Golf Open, while England and Wales Blind Golf Association put its allocation to use during this year’s Auld Enemies match against Scotland, from which it emerged victorious.

Delighted that the trolleys have been used to encourage participation in the sport amongst disabled golfers, England Golf Disability Manager, Jamie Blair, said, “I would like to thank PowaKaddy for their generous donation. England Golf is proud to recognise that it is not just non-disabled players representing England throughout the golfing year. A number of disability golf organisations compete on national, European and world stages throughout the year.

“Disabled golfers and those with a long-term limiting conditions account for ten percent of those playing once a week in England and I know that the trolleys will go to good use and Powakaddy’s recognition of those playing the game, not just elite golfers, is great to see.”
