Course set for learning new golf skills
ST Jude’s Disability Services hosted a golf event in Marangaroo this month to celebrate the International Day of Disability.
North regional manager Anne Livingston said the disability service provider ran the December 5 event in partnership with Marangaroo Golf Club using a grant from the Department of Communities’ Disability Services.
“The purpose was to introduce people with a disability to golf and offer a golf clinic, which was provided by the two golf professionals at the Marangaroo Golf Club, Robert Farley and Bronte Colbert,” she said. “Twenty-five people with disabilities enjoyed the morning, learning the art of driving and putting with competition throughout the morning followed by a lunch.
“The participants came from people living in the community and the local Dianella Secondary College Education Support Centre.”
