Do I Qualify?

Physically Disabled

  • Automatic Qualifications an amputation of a major joint (ankle, wrist, elbow, kneeÍ)
  • All other physical disabilities (Les Autres) are for golfers who fall into the Les Autres category: These include having Cerebral Palsy, being hemiplegic or having a limb which is still attached but has no use. These categories will require the completion of the medical classification form by a doctor or physiotherapist. SADGA will send this form to the Medical classifier that will approve, not approve or ask for a face to face consultation.
