Blind golfers may bring a coach and a bag carrier if they require. Due to the limited number of carts, caddies and coaches will only be allowed to drive in the carts with a medical certificate.
Only Senior Deaf golfers will be allowed carts. Deaf golfers who have a doctor’s certificate will also be allowed carts. Pull trolleys will be available to all deaf golfers.
There are a limited amount of caddies – should you wish to book a caddie, please contact Mount Edgecombe Country club directly to book a course caddie.
Should you wish to bring your own caddie, the caddie would have to pay the caddie entry fee. Caddies are required to register with their player at registration.
All caddies need to be recognized by the tournament rules officials as they form part of the player’s equipment and will therefore be required to wear the CANON bibs.
