Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
From the period of inception to 30th June 2015 Empower Golf Australia (EGA) has held numerous Come and Try days at a number of golf courses throughout Australia. These days have been used not only to expose the individual golf clubs, their staff and current members to the benefits of the paragolfer but to encourage those who are less able, irrespective of whether they have or have not played golf before, to either return to golf or to take golf up as a new sport. A number of these days have been run in association with Sydneys Royal Rehab Return2Sport initiative.In addition to these hands on sessions EGA has also presented at various golf clubs and other organisations throughout this period; in addition to having received both newspaper, radio and television coverage. In attracting less able individuals to golf, there is not only a physical and psychological benefit to the individual, but also benefits to their family and supporters, as these individuals become a part of the golfing community, golf being a sport for all ages, genders and abilities. EGA with the Sargood Foundation assisted with the funding of a paragolfer for Long Reef Golf Club in NSW. This paragolfer will not only be available for clients of Sargood but will also be available for general use by the public. In undertaking the above activities EGA has not only helped raise the awareness of disabled sport but increased the participation of less abled in sport, specifically golf. As such
