How can I carry on playing golf?

If you have very little or no sight, you can use a guide to help you get in the right position in order to take the shot.

Guides advise on the distance to the hole and position the player for direction, but it is the player that chooses the club they wish to use and makes the swing themselves.

For more information on playing golf with sight loss, customers should contact one of the following specialist organisations depending on where they live:

England and Wales

See the England and Wales Blind Golf listing on Sightline


See the Scottish Blind Golf Society (SBGS) listing on Sightline

Northern Ireland
