Handigolf is for physically disabled people who have to be seated to play all golf shots. It was started in 1988 and is now promoted by the UK charity, The Handigolf Foundation. The Foundation is run by volunteers, many of whom are disabled players themselves. Features of Handigolf are as follows.
- Specially designed buggies transport golfers to all parts of the course. Swivel seats enable the golfer to play from any side of the buggy.
- Buggies cost around £1,800 but they can be hired from the Foundation for £175 per year.
- Specially adapted clubs are used.
- Permission will have to be obtained to use the buggies on golf courses. Contact the Foundation to see where access has already been gained.
