We hope you find everything you need on this website from current news, fixtures, handicaps and more, but if not please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Can visually impaired people play golf?

Yes they can! See video below of Barry McCluskey sharpening his skills

Here is Barry McCluskey sharpening his skills for the 2019 season. Barry is one of our new members and in his first season secured a Vision Cup Rest of the World team call up. With ball striking like this you can see it is well deserved. #blindgolfer #blindgolfscotland ⛳🏌
