How it all began

Read this fascinating article by our own founder member Gerry Kelly on how he was responsible for the Evolution of blind golf in Scotland and the UK.

On September 4, 1979, the journey began in South Ayrshire and now, over 30 years later, golf for the blind and visually impaired is continuing to flourish and develop throughout the world.

Gerry was also involved in trying to attract youngsters from various primary schools who had a visual impairment to join SBGS after a tuition programme was launched and sponsored by The Golf Foundation in 1988 and 1989.

Sadly however, in 1990 the integration of disabled children into main stream education meant it was not possible for those children to be released from their various classes so it was not possible to get them together as a group. THE Royal Blind in Edinburgh was still a viable group, however a new Head Teacher would not sanction continuation of the scheme, so after a lot of hard work it was very disappointing to see it come to an end, until of course clubgolf took up the torch in 2005.
