WA Open breaks all ground skills

Posted by on   /   Posted in golf news

The picturesque Cottesloe Golf Club organizes the two events in October.

A groundbreaking championship for golfers with disabilities will be challenged at this year's Nexus Risk WA Open in Perth.

On the same course, at the same time and under the same playing conditions as the professionals, Australia's leading golfers with disabilities will compete for more than 36 holes for the inaugural WA Open All Abilities Championship.

This event is the first time that an Australian state championship contains a category with all skills.

Gary Thomas, CEO of GolfWA, was delighted that disabled players would have the opportunity to share the fairways with some of Australia's leading professional golfers.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for these versatile golfers and it underlines the inclusive nature of our game," said Thomas.

“Golf is a sport with the capacity to involve people from different backgrounds; this tournament will inspire the public and hopefully encourage other people with disabilities to give golf a chance. "

The WA Open All Abilities Championship is a world class event that is expected to attract a strong field from across the country.

The Perth event offers further opportunities for participants to earn ranking points that lead to national and international competitions, including the Australian All Abilities Championship, which is being held in collaboration with the Australian Open.

This year's Nexus Risk WA Open will be played at Cottesloe Golf Club from 17-20 October.
