About the project

In Australia there are approximately 4.4 million people living with a disability with approximately 600,000 Australians having an intellectual disability

Our charity provides specialty golf programs for people with intellectual disabilities. We have 45 registered athletes able to attend our weekly program. PGA Professional Darrell Dalton has inspired many people to give golf a try and families have been surprised at the results. The friendship, the training, the exercise, the competitions and rewards make it very special and very inclusive.

Our charity offers training in retail, business and creativity, available only to athletes as an extension to their experiences. With few meaningful training & work placement opportunities for the intellectually disabled we felt uniquely positioned to create an environment of learning and it has been a success.

"Our vision" is to establish a "World First" Purpose Built Golf Facility created to provide substantial training & work placement opportunities specifically and uniquely for the intellectually disabled. Unlike any other facility, this unique custom designed complex will provide a one stop shop to support this sector as a matter of priority. This facility will be open to both the disability and general public, providing high quality training & employment for people with intellectual disabilities.
