Following the success of 2013, the Disabled Golf Association has partnered with BGL Golf, to announce the launch of the Race to Burhill 2014.
The competition will include six qualifying events, taking place throughout the year, at different BGL Golf facilities located across the UK, culminating in a grand final at Burhill Golf Club, Surrey.
The top three golfers from each preliminary stage will qualify for the final, to be played on Friday October 17th 2014 on Burhill’s New Course, a regular venue for the EuroPro Tour.
Graeme Robertson, DGA National Events Co-Ordinator, said: “BGL Golf understands what we’re all about and has been incredibly supportive of this series.
“The BGL Golf facilities, are disabled-friendly, but what has impressed me most is the staff, who are knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to be of assistance. We are looking forward to returning to venues we played last year, but also to playing 2 new BGL courses’
Colin Mayes, BGL chief executive, said: “We operate golf facilities that welcome golfers without discrimination of age, gender, ability, handicap or dress sense.
“It is my hope that the Race to Burhill will not only provide a prominent fixture on the DGA’s calendar, but that it also serves to raise the profile of disabled golf in the wider golfing community.”
