EM­POWER Golf Queens­land is host­ing a come and try golf clinic in Cairns for peo­ple liv­ing with a dis­abil­ity. The clin­ics are the ideal way to in­tro­duce new peo­ple to golf for the first time, or to rein­tro­duce for­mer play­ers to the game they love, af­ter dis­abled through ac­ci­dent or ill­ness. Play­ers of all abil­i­ties have the op­por­tu­nity to try golf and use adap­tive equip­ment such as the ParaGolfer, un­der the tu­ition of Cairns coach Gra­ham Bolton. The ParaGolfer raises wheel­chair users into a stand­ing po­si­tion to en­able a more con­ven­tional golf swing. The clinic is also just an op­por­tu­nity to re­lax and get to know the other play­ers. The first ses­sion is on July 1, 4pm-6pm at Half Moon Bay Golf Club. Places are lim­ited, so book as soon as pos­si­ble.

WHAT GEAR: Ap­pro­pri­ate clothes, sun­screen, hats and wa­ter. All golf­ing equip­ment will be pro­vided though you are wel­come to bring your own
