About the project

Our purpose built golf facility PBGF will change the lives of tens of thousands.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics there are over 4.3 million disabled people with approximately 600,000 individuals living with an intellectual disability nationally. People with disability aged 15-24 years were 10 times more likely to report the experience of discrimination than the elderly. In reality there are few training & meaningful work placement opportunities for the intellectually disabled.

GPAI plans to address this issue by establishing the world’s first Purpose Built Golf Facility providing substantial training & work placement opportunities specifically for the intellectually disabled.

Unlike any other facility, this unique custom designed complex will provide a one stop shop to support this sector. This facility will include...
